Turmeric in food
Why should we even try to incorporate this spice into our foods? Turmeric has a high antioxidant value and boosts the immune system. The benefits of turmeric go on and on. As part of the ginger family, it improves digestion, reduces inflammation (think arthritis and joint problems), improves skin conditions, kills yeast and parasites, lowers cholesterol, purifies blood and prevents progression of Alzheimer’s to name a few.
Paleo Recipe – Lemon Coconut Bread(Gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free and sugar-free)
This recipe calls for a dozen eggs, which makes it very nutrient dense. It fills you up without making you feel stuffed. We like to let it cool a bit and eat it like cornbread with lots of butter on top. It’s good hot or cold, and a great recipe for keeping up with your hens while they are laying all their beautiful eggs with orange yolks.
- 12 eggs
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
- 3/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
- 1 tsp. turmeric
- 1 tsp. salt
- 15 drops lemon oil
- 1 lemon juice and zest
- 1 cup berries (sprinkle on top)
- Stevia extract to taste
Mix ingredients together until well-mixed, place in baking dish. Bake at 350 for 30-40 min.
