Summer Fresh Mango & Turmeric Smoothie

Did you know that the root cause of most diseases and illnesses is inflammation in the
body? It’s also the greatest cause of premature aging.

Ah, you had me, at wrinkles!

Inflammation in the body can be caused by many factors including diet (I’m talkin’ sugar,
gluten, dairy and trans fats), an unhealthy gut, injury, stress, hormonal imbalance and certain medications.

You can help your body fight inflammation by reducing stress (#meditation), eliminating sugar and processed foods (#you’llsurvive) and by filling up on anti-inflammatory foods.

Turmeric is one of our favourite anti-inflammatory foods and the star of today’s smoothie.

It is composed primarily of a chemical known as curcumin, which actively reduces inflammation in the body, and including turmeric regularly in your diet is a positive step in reducing said inflammation pronto, plus unlike anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen, it won’t damage your liver or kidneys.

FUN FACT: Turmeric is fat soluble, which means unless you consume it with a little fat your body will find it difficult to absorb.

Traditionally, turmeric is used in Indian and ayurvedic cooking, but there are a bunch of different ways to squeeze it into your diet.

●      Turmeric latte: Heat 1 cup of almond or coconut milk with 1 teaspoon of fresh turmeric or ¼ teaspoon of ground turmeric and 1 teaspoon of honey.
●      Turmeric and tahini dressing: Combine tahini, lemon juice, a pinch of turmeric and a little warm water to achieve the desired consistency. (Don’t forget the black pepper).
●      Add it to your favourite curries.
●      Try this delicious Turmeric Crepe recipe.
●      Add it to your favourite smoothie mango and turmeric are the best of flavourful friends).

FUN FACT: Black pepper helps your body absorb the curcumin in turmeric, due to a substance called piperine, which enhances absorption by 2000%. So make sure you include a pinch of cracked black pepper in every meal that you add turmeric to (even my delicious Mango & Turmeric Smoothie recipe).
