Turmeric has amazing health benefits and flavor. It is know as a “healing spice” and is 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.
So brewing a cup of hot turmeric or golden milk to fight a flue that has been torturing me all week was only more than perfect. Ans there is something about drinking hot milk in bed, such a comforting feeling.
Beat those germs!
recipe type: to drink, to snack, to breakfast
