##turmeric #milk is my outright favorite evening time drinks besides hot tea. This drink is not only completely calming, relaxing, and soothing at night, but incredibly nourishing. turmeric has tons of nutrients especially antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. A lot of classic recipes will use whole cows milk, but I opt for a different choice that’s a little more welcoming to our bodies and the digestive system, particularly those experiencing digestive problems or intolerances to dairy; Almond Milk. Traditionally Turmeric Milk stems from many Ayurvedic practices and medicine in Indian customs. Turmeric is nothing at all new to Eastern cultures, in fact it’s been called a “healing spice” used to help anything from sore throats, colds, flus, stomach aches to wound healing, abrasions/skin issues due to it’s antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
Look for fresh turmeric root at your local Asian market. They usually have it fresh and cheap, but it can also be found at many health food stores.
