Turmeric, is one of the ingredients that I love to use weekly if not daily in my meals. The active ingredient, curcumin, is loaded with beneficial properties. It is a natural antioxidant that protects your body of free radicals, known as oxidative stress. The body is under constant attack of free radicals that damage our cells, proteins and DNA. The food that we eat, the air that we breath, the water that we drink. Nothing is pure and clean anymore. What we can do, is help our body to better manage the stress that undergoes daily.
Turmeric is also great for bones, pain relief, skin, brain function, immunity and many other reclaimed benefits.
My personal experience with turmeric
After using it for so many years, I can swear by its properties when it comes to pain relief. There are times when I have a slight menstrual discomfort in the first day and I make a golden turmeric drink. This drink is pure magic. It calms the womb instantly.
Steps to make golden milk:
Warm a cup of plant based milk. Add a tablespoon of turmeric, black pepper. Ground cinnamon (optional). Enjoy every sip.
Always use turmeric in combination with black pepper to activate the main ingredient, curcumin.
On to the dressing/dip.
- hemp seeds
- black sesame seeds
- pumpkin seeds
- half lemon peeled
- 1 garlic
- black pepper
- fresh dill or parsley
- little bit water
The portion is for 1 person. I eye measure the seeds. I would say 1/5 tablespoon of each seed. Blend all ingredients except for the fresh herbs. Add the herbs at the end and pulse the blender for 2-5 seconds depending on how powerful your blender is, just to cut the herbs smaller and not to blend them fully.
Uses for the dip: baked potatoes, fresh vegetables (peppers, cucumber, salad)
I invite you to try this nutritious raw vegan turmeric dressing! You will be hooked.
