When I found this organic turmeric at the grocery store the other day, I squealed like a little pig!
Just the thought incorporating it even more in my diet is a dream come true.
I knew the first thing I wanted to do with the turmeric was kiss it… haha, just kidding.
Actually, I wanted to make juice!
Turmeric has the ability to reduce inflammation in the body naturally.
Did you know the inactive ingredients in different forms of over-the-counter medications include artificial food coloring made from petroleum, artificial sugars, sodium benzoate, GMO’s, propylene glycol and parabens?
These are ingredients I wouldn’t normally put into my body – and most definitely don’t want to subject my body to when I’m trying to recover from something.
When I had a bad accident a couple of years ago, I did not take painkillers long term, and I took turmeric in pill form to help my body to heal naturally. And I would not be sharing this story, unless it freaking worked! To this day – whenever I have an injury – I turn to turmeric.
But that’s just the icing on the cake – Turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat a number of conditions and scientists believe that one of the reasons why turmeric is so powerful is that it contains curcumin. Its beneficial properties have been the subject of thousands of peer-reviewed and published studies.
So now that I’ve hopefully convinced you to try this root…. I need to tell you that juicing turmeric can be really tricky. If you use too much – the juice can end up very bitter and not at all pleasant to drink.
I experimented with a few different blends that don’t use fruit juice or sugar (like most recipes call for) because I wanted to find a way to drink this all the time without having to consume the additional added sugar.
The blend that worked is so REFRESHING. The coolness of the cucumber and romaine worked like a charm…. I hope you can find fresh turmeric root where ever you are… because this juice is the BOMB.
