Tip of the week #1…Inflammation

Inflammation is the source of so many diseases from cancer to heart disease to arthritis and a TON of diseases in between. There are 2 things you can all do on a daily basis, to help control inflammation in your body NOW! And they are so easy!!

1) Cinnamon! Cinnamon actually has a lot of health benefits but so as not to overwhelm you, decreasing inflammation is a big one! Put it on your toast with your Justin’s Nut Butter (sorry I can’t help myself) or add it to your granola, oatmeal or yogurt. So easy!

2) Turmeric! Since the flavor is mild, I add it to everything!  I am a little nuts with turmeric. I add it to all my soups, I sprinkle it or grate it on my salads, I juice it, and use it in my grains and some lentils. You can find it in the spice section or as an actual root (see pic).

This is what the root looks like…it does stain as you can see from my chopping board…
