I LOVE the taste of turmeric lattes and knowing that I am fighting inflammation while enjoying this easy to make drink! I’ll have my bullet-proof latte in the morning and this one in the evening (minus the coconut milk for me – see below).
I enjoy this every morning! Minus the coconut milk since sadly, I’m sensitive. Instead, I use MCT oil and ghee. Before I did the MRT food sensitivity testing, I put coconut oil in my coffee each day thinking it was good for me. The old saying is true, what might be good for one may not be so good for another! Also, I am no longer a slave to caffeine. Back in the day if I missed my caffeinated coffee I had a TERRIBLE headache. Slowly I weaned off of caffeine with the help of green tea and now I drink organic decaf coffee. If you’re going decaf, make sure you choose organic because nonorganic decaf uses chemicals to remove the caffeine whereas organic usually uses a method called Swiss water process. This method removes 99% of the caffeine by repeatedly soaking the green coffee beans in hot water then passing them through a carbon (charcoal) filter.
You might know from my Instagram and Facebook feed that my husband and I spent a long weekend in NYC. We rode bikes EVERYDAY – up to about 30 miles a day! We loved it so much that when we got home, we dusted off our bikes and hit the road! Bike riding in NYC in June vs. Charleston, SC is very different temperature-wise (traffic-wise too). To start our SC adventures we rode around our neighborhood for a bit before deciding to venture out. Always choosing early in the morning or later in the evening we were surprised that the breeze created by riding was pleasant. Who needs cars and air conditioning?!! I’m joking! On our first adventure out we rode about three miles to the Waterfront Park and Pier and then to the other side of town to Shem Creek. We then crossed back to our side of town and headed for home. Hot, thirsty (we forgot to bring drinks – this is new for us), and a little sweaty, we were happy to come across a juice shop. We shared a nice refreshing green juice and my husband had a turmeric shot. Check out the Turmeric Shot recipe I recreated to share with you. It’s husband approved! Enjoy!
This is so easy to make and can be stored in your fridge all week! Try adding two tablespoons to a smoothie for an awesome addition of fiber! Just make sure you keep shaking it while it sets.
If you don’t have papaya add any fruit you have on hand. If you do have papaya add some of the seeds too. They help fight parasites! I learned this from a roadside fruit stand in Hawaii!
I’m a sucker for ginger! Pineapple too – awesome! Ginger is great for digestion and the bromelain in the pineapple is a great anti-inflammatory, especially for seasonal allergies.
You can make this in the blender or in a juicer. If you don’t have lemon or if you just want to use the power of essential oils, try adding three drops of doTERRA lemon essential oil!
Another awesome smoothie and for this one you can use doTERRA lemon and doTERRA lime essential oils. Speaking of lemon, before I have my Bulletproof coffee in the morning, I have a glass of room temperature water with three drops of doTERRA lemon essential oil. This drink kick starts my metabolism, is great for hydration and helps lean me towards being more alkaline than acidic.
I absolutely love chia pudding and so does my digestion! Just look at the picture above – delicious! Be creative, use what you have and make it your own! Have fun! My six year old nephew loved making this with me.
I also absolutely LOVE kale chips and always wake up alkaline after eating these in the evening. I drive my husband slightly crazy with my crunching but this is the BEST evening snack. I keep trying to get him to like kale chips too but he loves his Sea Salt & Vinegar potato chips! I use a dehydrator instead of the oven but the oven works just as well. I hope you like these as much as I do!
Gluten-free baby! My belly thanks me! Doesn’t this look great?! Give it a try!
