Hello hello ! It’s been a busy couple of months, so busy that I can never seem to find the time to write anymore… I have so many recipes to share with you, and blogging is such a pleasure for me. It’s so liberating for us chatter boxes who need to exteriorize their feelings 🙂 .
So my Moon Milk recipe has been crazy popular, you wouldn’t believe how many views I’ve had in the past year. I guess this is what people want to read about and I don’t blame you. This is why today I’m eager to share a simple and effective Golden Latte recipe – without anything added but spices.
It’s so easy nowadays to find any kind if recipe online, you type it in Google and you’ll find hundreds of recipes. It’s also really hard to find balance for our bodies with the overflow of health tips we can find online. One day coconut oil is the best thing on earth for our bodies, then the next it’s terrible and clogs everything up.
We read about all
these diets, Keto, Raw, Paleo, Vegan, Gluten free etc…. but how do we actually
know if it’s right for us ? We’re not doctors, we’re not nutritionists (well
some of us are) yet we all seem to know what’s best to eat or drink.
I’m not going to
tell you Golden Lattes are THE healthy miracle drink. Nope. I just want to
share a recipe that makes my body feel good. Maybe it’ll make your body feel
good too, but maybe it won’t. So remember to take the information I give you
with a grain of salt, and most importantly if you need real diet advice – ask a
nutritionist or specialized doctor. He’ll know best what’s good for you!
That said, there are
a few reasons why I love tumeric (or curcuma – same thing):
It truly uplifts my mood, could be a placebo effect but who cares !
It can replace my crave for coffee on days I cut coffee out of my diet
It’s an effective natural energy drink (instead of snacking)
I consume it at specific moments of the month according to my FloLiving cycle-syncing program
One day I’ll write a
specific article on this special program that has really changed my life.
I also believe that
we are at an era where it is now more important than ever to reconnect with
natural resources provided by our earth. I think we should all take an interest
in feeding ourselves without needing to buy processed foods that only need to be
warmed up, but by knowing the root ingredients ourselves and how to use them
from scratch. We tend to forget that by putting toxic substances into our
bodies, we are damaging it little by little…and we are taking our only body for
granted. And why ? Because we’re too lazy ?
Tumeric is a plant that is transformed into a spice, commonly used in Asian cultures to make curry for example. It has a warm and bitter taste and a vibrant color that is appreciated to give color to our cuisine – whether it’s mustards, butters, sauces or cheeses. Did you know that the Tumeric root has also been often used to make medicine and cosmetics ? It is known to be highly beneficial for all inflammatory related problems.
If you are open to Ayurvedic medicine then here is a list of believed benefits (with clinical evidence) this root can provide in the holistic healing systems: (information taken from published medical review Nutrition Today) :
