1. Juices or Smoothies

Okay, turmeric may not be a great addition to a berry smoothie (though we don’t judge), but turmeric is part of the ginger family, and it would make a great addition to a carrot-ginger smoothie. Or perhaps blend it with some pineapple and lemon juice—that sounds exotic and delicious! Just add one of those little umbrellas…

2. Veggies. All of them.

We know we need to eat our vegetables, and the USDA recommends that Americans eat 2.5 cups every day! But vegetables can be a little bland, and they could use a little dressing up if we’re to get to 2.5 cups! Add to their flavor and visual appeal by roasting in olive oil and sprinkling with a little turmeric, or try turmeric on sautéed veggies. Turmeric is a great pairing with root vegetables like potatoes, yams, squash, carrots, and even tasty, but often ignored, parsnips. Now you get to eat healthy and feel like a gourmet!
