Turmeric Spiced Overnight Chia Oats

TRUE LIFE: I am obsessed with turmeric- I think that should be an episode. I love turmeric and all of its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. This wonderful golden spice does wonders for our bodies at the cellular level as well as our bodies as a whole. As I discussed a few posts back, turmeric’s main active ingredient is curcumin, which contributes to the amazing effects turmeric has on the body. It contains high levels of manganese, iron, vitamin B6, fiber, copper, and potassium, and is a quite strong but extremely safe anti-inflammatory.

Turmeric can make a fantastic treatment for inflammatory bowel disease and IBS, due to its anti-inflammatory effects it can aid those with rheumatoid arthritis and help thocystic fibrosis. It can aid in cancer treatment, and the list continues! So we are all on board that this spice should be used as often as possible. You may still be asking, “But how do I incorporate this spice into my diet?” Here is another glorious recipe for adding some turmeric to your breakfast!

  1. I’ve turned to fresh ginger daily in juicing for digestive health, so you think turmeric would be overpowering or could you see a use here as well. Curious but very thankful for your overnight oats idea as is! Thank you for sharing
