Use these 7 ways to get more turmeric into your diet.

Turmeric is tasty and healthy, especially when you include it in your daily diet. Sometimes people can be a little intimidated and aren't really sure where to start with adding turmeric into their cooking routine. Here are 7 easy, fun, and fabulous ways to integrate this important spice into your day.

Add Turmeric to Your Coffee or Tea

You can start your day with turmeric by making some easy hard-boiled eggs seasoned with it. You can also add some to your morning cuppa joe. Try this:

  • Add a dash of cayenne pepper, 1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder, and enough chocolate protein shake powder to suit your taste to a cup of coffee. Adjust the turmeric up or down as you like.

You can do the same with tea, but you will probably wish to skip the addition of the protein shake.

Roasted vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, beets, turnips, parsnips, and sweet potatoes are absolutely delicious and packed with healthy nutrients. Increase their powerful health punch by tossing them in turmeric before you put them in the oven.

Add Some Turmeric to Your Hummus for a Healthy Dip

Having hummus and vegetables for a snack or meal is a great way to increase your fiber intake and decrease your animal protein while still getting lots of healthy plant protein from the chickpeas in the hummus. You can add turmeric to ready-made hummus or make your own by grinding cooked or canned chickpeas with a little tahini, sesame oil, garlic, and turmeric.

Combine Turmeric with Other Spices for a Tasty Dessert Topper

You might not immediately think about dessert when you think about turmeric. After all, it's a more savory spice in general. However, delicious desserts can be made with turmeric if you think out of the box a little. For instance, try this:

  • Mix ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and turmeric together to taste. Add them to some almond milk, sweeten with vanilla extract and honey or maple syrup, and drizzle over some vanilla ice cream or chopped up fruit. Add chopped walnuts for some crunch and extra nutrients.
