Restorative Ayurvedic turmeric, cardamom almond mylk


This is such an easy pick me up and an immediate immunity boost for the cooler months. Turmeric is an important spice in Ayurveda – the traditional medicine of India. It can be consumed by all the body types or doshas. Did you know that it really shouldn’t be sautéed in oil as the spice is sensitive to prolonged cooking periods, so sprinkle over slow-cooking vegetable dishes and curries. The Balinese make a tonic called jamu consisting of fresh or dried turmeric, lime juice and honey.
