Third on our list of our select 10 SuperFoods is Termeric sis! Turmeric is one of the main ingredients in curry powders, and this incresinly popular spice has other culinary uses. You can even enjoy it as a beverage, such as golden milk or turmeric tea.  Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and contains curcumin, a ptoent antioxidant.  Some people also find that turmeric helps soothe the stomach. Also like most spices, it’s an excellent low cal way to add flavor to foods without the salt, fat or sugar in the process.

ALSO TRY: Like turmeric, ginger is a rhizome, a popular culinary spice and a good source of antioxidants. Enoy these speices alone or in dieshes together, like the free recipe today, uses both!!


  • Use turmeric as a culinary spice, yes, but it is also availalbe as a supplement.  Before taking it, talk to your health care provider.
  • Keep turmeric root in the freezer and grate it with a box grater as needed.  There’s no need to peel away the nutrient-rich skin when grating finely. (I use ginger in the same way, hourseradish can do the same)
  • Turmeric adds color, citrus aroma and a slightly sharp flavor to dishes. I LOVE IT SO MUCH, I usually double any recipe that calls for it!
  • Use in curries, mustard and pickle recipes and to add color to rice and grains.
  • To make soothing golden milk, simmer turmeric with ginger, peppercorns and winter spices in milk or nut milk with a little honey for about 10 minutes.  Strain and serve warm, YUMMERS!!

  • Tameko says:

    I loved this soup when I made it with powdered tumeric, but recently saw fresh roots in the store and am so going to try it again!

  • Monique Alston says:

    Turmeric is great. I use it in my smoothies occasionally or take them as supplements.

  • Judy McGee says:

    I use turmeric powder a lot.
    Never used turmeric root or ginger root.
    Plan to try them both.

  • Ebonie says:

    I love tumeric and drink wellness shots daily which have tumeric in it

  • Trudy says:

    Mine too…store-bought though. I was born and raised on a farm. However, my grandfather never taught me how to use the almanac, or how to actually grow anything. I’d work 12 hours a day in his 20 acre field every day. I’m starting to use YouTube and I’m determined to make use of my 3/4 acre backyard to grow some veggies.
