Cold-busting Turmeric Smoothie

the cure for almost anything

the cure for almost anything

How ironic that I wrote a post last week about boosting your immune system and almost as soon as I hit ‘publish’, both Hubs and I came down with stinking colds.

Better start practicing what I preach, eh?!

We are staying indoors, sleeping lots and sipping warm broth by the bucket-full.

Also on our beat-this-thing-as-painlessly-as-possible list, is this turmeric smoothie that Hubs found in the dark recesses of the internet.

Hubs says "too-mare-rick", I say "chew-mur-rick". I don't know how we make this marriage work...

Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant. It’s also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.

Basically it’s what you want when there are evil, mucuousy spirits camped out in your delicate nasal passages.

  1. This looks wonderful! Almost everyday I end up making Mark Sisson’s Tumeric Tea recipe – I have become such a huge fan of everything with Tumeric. This looks like such a fun, yummy way to have it… I will be pinning this for later. :)

  2. Sounds perfect for a fellow sufferer! Sadly I am not able to stay indoors nor sleep a lot not enjoy hot broth ;) Quite the opposite and feeling terrible lol but this I must try! Get well soon and may the nasty cold germs long vanished from your nostrils !
