My latest resolution is to start getting more turmeric in my diet. Ever since I started making Squashin' Macaroni & Cheese with my overload of winter squash, I have been addicted to turmeric. It's an anti-inflammatory, it increases your antioxidants, it is said to help prevent and possibly treat cancer, it's thought to delay aging and this is just naming a few benefits, there are many, many more!
Another one of my my resolutions that I'm trying to conquer is to juice more (and work out more, and eat more salads ...). I'm a 'two-for' type of gal, so I figured I should try to get two done with one shot and make a juice with turmeric in it. Let me tell you, I'm hooked. It's sweet, tangy and a has a little tiny bite from the turmeric. Plus, this juice is so easy. It doesn't have a million ingredients and I almost always have the ingredients in the fridge.
I think I'm setting myself to actually meet this resolution!
