I once had a conversation with a friend about how the decisions we make today can deeply impact our future health, and it’s stuck with me ever since. Unlike a car that we can replace every few years, or when something goes wrong, we each only have one body for life. When I was younger I lived in the moment (and I don’t mean in a mindfulness way), just doing what I pleased without thinking about how it would affect me down the road, but now I am all about self care, starting from the inside out.
Adding turmeric to your healthcare routine is a wonderful way to boost immunity, fight inflammation, naturally treat joint pain. and even improve your mood! I’ve been taking Avie Nutraceuticals Ultramicronized Turmeric Curcumin twice a day for over a month now, and I love that it works quickly to ease soreness after a long run or hard workout (I can usually feel the difference within 30 min), and especially the fact that it’s providing long term benefits for my whole body (and mind). Turmeric is used in curry recipes, and works beautifully in savory dishes (I often use it as a rub on baked chicken), but it’s equally delicious in a dessert! This recipes takes the slightly spicy flavors of a golden milk latte, and turns them into a creamy, dreamy cheesecake that has all the decadence of a normal slice of cheesecake minus the refined sugar, gluten, or dairy, and with added health benefits. Typically turmeric is taken with black pepper to increase absorption, but as black pepper can cause stomach irritation, Avie created their Ultramicronized Turmeric Curcumin to be water soluble and higher potency so it can be easily absorbed without any pepper, so I decided to skip it here as well (adding a little cardamom for more flavor instead). Inspired by that gorgeous golden color from the turmeric I turned my cake into a tiger using a little melted chocolate and fresh fruit, but you can top it however you would like for the perfect afternoon (or anytime) treat.
