Healing Turmeric Tea

Healing Turmeric Tea

There’s a new trend out at the moment and it is everywhere! The craze is for turmeric latte or golden milk. Turmeric also known as Arad/Haldi/Addar is well known for it’s anti inflammatory and antioxidant effects. However because it is difficult to absorb, it is advisable to have it with some black pepper too. Here I have made a healing turmeric tea.

Nabeez

Nabeez

I have only starting making Nabeez recently after reading a lovely message about its benefits. This is a prophetic drink and as such i knew it would hold some benefit to me. However that didn’t mean i was looking forward to trying it! I imagined that it would be really ‘bitty’. 

Nabeez

The part that struck me the most is that this is an alkalising drink that removes acidity from the stomach. I think i have mentioned previously, that i read a lot about food in general and one of the things i have read repeatedly is that the body should be in an alkaline state to avoid many of the illnesses we hear about nowadays. More on that here.

Dates contain Fibre,  Potassium, Copper, Manganese, Magnesium and Vitamin B6. Dates also promote Digestive Health,  Help to relieve constipation thanks to the fibre content,  boost heart health, are an anti inflammatory, reduces blood pressure, help boost iron levels, help to reduce blood pressure, promote respiratory health and helps to prevent colon cancer. So it always makes sense to consume dates! 

Nabeez is delicious. So much better then I expected. Better then any smoothie or juice i have ever tasted but saying that i’m not really a smoothie person, yet weirdly i love a smoothie bowl! Soaking the dates only intensifies their sweetness, making this drink very easy to drink! A Kilner jar is ideal for Nabeez because you can just screw the lid on and forget about it but a tall glass covered with anything from cling film to a small dish is also perfect. I hope you enjoy this lovely drink and that you have it as often as we do!

Notes:

Leaving the date water for too long in a warm place can cause fermentation. Yesterday it was particularly hot, so i put my jar in the fridge to do its thing.

This picture was taken just as the dates went in. The water looks a lot murkier after a while.

 

Smores Hot Chocolate

Smores Hot Chocolate

Tis the season for smores hot chocolate, warm fires, loadsa lights, cosy knits, roast meals and merriment. When I think of hot chocolate, camp fires come to mind. I love camping and I can’t wait to go again. I think that when you go once and realise that it isn’t as dirty and scary as you had imagined, its becomes something to really look forward to. We went with the kids when they were a bit younger and they still go on about it. I would have thought they would have forgotten by now but nope!

Spiced Pumpkin Latte

Spiced Pumpkin Latte

I love a good spiced pumpkin latte or any latte that isn’t strong on the coffee front. I don’t like bitter coffee, that’s for sure. I feel like my teeth are going to drop out and go off for a walk when I accidentally take a sip of a black coffee.
