If there's one thing I make sure I eat every single day, it's turmeric. Sounds like a strange spice to include in your diet every day, I know. But after suffering from serious stomach issues in my early 20s, I had plenty of specialists, nutritionists, and dietitians suggest I add turmeric to my meals — but how? A gastroenterologist even went as far as advising me to chase two teaspoons of the powder with water every morning, something I quickly realized wasn't for me. It wasn't until dietitian Chloe McLeod gave me her recipe for an anti-inflammatory shot that I discovered a delicious way to reap the benefits of turmeric without having to suffer through the overpowering taste.
Not just a recommendation for people with digestion issues, turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory that can help ease muscle soreness, offer relief for achy joints, and aid with weight loss.
