Switching to a diet with minimal processed foods has done wonders for me. I used to have fast food pretty often due to time constraints (or so I thought), but I realized that I wasn’t giving my body the fuel it needs to function properly. I slowly started switching my meals and drinks to more nutritious alternatives, and needless to say, turmeric has been one of my favorites. Turmeric has been shown in numerous studies to have major health benefits for the body but I personally think it’s so tasty when incorporated into sauces or brewed as tea. This turmeric powder tea recipe is a potent anti-inflammatory agent, rich in antioxidants, and great for digestion.
