Healing Smoothie- Turmeric Ginger Smoothie

Healing Smoothie- Turmeric Ginger Smoothie

Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free Detox week 2

I am on week two of my Vegas Detox- Slim and trim by September 9, 2015

So far I have lost 7 pounds just by changing up my food.

Mostly smoothies for breakfast and greens for lunch and dinner. My smoothies had a lot of bananas and now I am sick of bananas 🙂 Gluten-Free Oatmeal

I really do not have an issue with eating well, my biggest issue when considering calories and carbs are gluten-free pasta, rice and wine!

I consider myself doing the 80/20 rule of my dieting- 80% clean foods that I prepare and 20% going out to eat but still choosing healthy items.

This week consists of Nature’s Path Gluten Free Instant Oatmeal Spiced Apple, Vegan Tacos and turmeric smoothies. I really love those turmeric smoothies! Took me a while to get used to the spice but I love it now.

I have also learned to make smaller portions to control the calorie intake. But by all means- I DO NOT MEASURE A THING! And, I am not counting calories or carbs. Just watching what I put in my body and how much of it I put in there.




Breakfast Turmeric Smoothie

So for my Turmeric Ginger Smoothie here are the ingredients:

  • Frozen fruit- I chose strawberries this morning
  • Coconut unsweetened milk about a cup
  • Ginger- as much as you like
  • Turmeric- I used about two tablespoons but start with a little if you do not like the flavor
  • Raw Honey- just a teaspoon

Put it all in the blender and enjoy!




Benefits of turmeric

Curcumin is a Natural Anti-Inflammatory Compound

Inflammation is incredibly important.

It helps the body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in repairing damage.

Without inflammation, pathogens like bacteria could easily take over our bodies and kill us.

Turmeric // Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant-rich, battles cystic fibrosis, free radical-fighting, lowers cholesterol

  • This smoothie was dope. It had a really good bite because of the method I used to chop the ginger. I used more than two tablespoons. If you want a good test, user more. Make sure you use essential everyday coconut milk.

    Thanks for the recipe.
