Turmeric & Coconut Oatmeal

TURMERIC. Seriously the ultimate spice. If you aren’t familiar with turmeric then you have been slipping….It’s okay, I’ve only recently learned of its nutritional and healing properties. Turmeric, whether it is in it’s powdered form or raw root form can be extremely beneficial. Some of the properties within this powerful little guy are anti-inflammatory, boosts immune system, improves cognitive function, acts as an anti-depressant, and can lower your risk of heart disease. That was enough for me to start adding this into my weekly routines and eating habits. Check out this yummy oatmeal recipe and see my blog post “Homemade Face Masks” for another awesome way to use turmeric!
