 Why Turmeric?

There’s a reason we’re seeing turmeric pop up in so many recipes. For one, it’s what gives ice creams, smoothies, and lattes that beautiful tawny color. It’s also a plant-based source of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It’s believed to be so effective, it’s often taken in pill form. There is also the powder form that makes it easy to reap the benefits by adding to smoothies, lattes, and even these chocolate chip muffins. 

What is Turmeric?

Turmeric is a spice and a member of the ginger family. It’s often found in India where it is used for a variety of benefits. It’s used in their cuisine but it’s also used in Ayurvedic medicine and in many healing traditions. It can be applied to wounds to help fight infection. It’s also mixed with milk to help calm the mind. Indian culture also believes when it is made into a paste and applied to the entrance of a new home it brings prosperity. But it’s really the medicinal qualities that makes it a great addition to these coconut turmeric chocolate chip muffins.
