Morning Turmeric-Lemon Drink

Spice up your morning with this powerful drink that you’ll learn to love as the results unfold. Check out the article we found over at Healthy Food House on the powerful healing drink.

Turmeric is used widely in Indian cuisine, but if you do not eat Indian food every day, how can you include this wonderful spice in your diet? Simple! Spice up your warm lemon water.

To increase its beneficial effect, add a pinch of cinnamon, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can regulate blood sugar levels (which means you will eat less and feel more satisfied).

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of warm (not hot) water; you can use a cup of warm milk if desired (almond, soy or regular cow’s milk)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
  • a pinch of cinnamon, optional
  • 1/8 tsp honey

Preparation:

After you heat the water, add turmeric, lemon juice and honey. Stir well. Turmeric will settle on the bottom of the cup, so keep stirring while you drink this elixir, and you will utilize all of the benefits of turmeric. Make sure you drink it while it is still warm.

Turmeric is very inexpensive. It will give your lemon water a mild flavor, and have a positive effect on every system in your body. Adding this powerful spice to your diet is one of the best things you can do for your health.
