Adding turmeric to desserts and sweet breakfasts has been quite trendy lately. However it can’t be a new thing with the Syrian (or is it Lebanese?) dessert sufoof that has probably been around for decades.
I’ve gotten into sweet turmeric after falling in love with Four Sigmatic’s Golden Mushroom Latte…it’s delicious and the combination of turmeric and medicinal mushroom is amazing for your immunity and overall health. I also take Turmeric capsules as part of my daily vitamins…previously from Dr. Mercola, however more recently as part of my personalized vitamin pack from Care/Of. Tuermic has many evidence-based health benefits for the body and the brain.
There’s a lot of debate whether taking vitamins or supplements is necessary…and the argument can go either way. But here’s why I take them on a regular basis for several years now.
Even if you eat healthy, the soil where our food grows, or from which animals feed, is depleted of nutrients and minerals, and therefore so is our food.
It’s easier to take the supplements and not have to worry about whether or not you go your daily recommendation of certain vitamins and minerals.
I take a probiotic every day to ensure the best health for my digestive system.
Vitamins in general, and several in particular such as turmeric or medicinal mushrooms, help boost your immunity.
Taking care of your health and supplementing with high quality vitamins can help delay aging, combat many diseases such as heart disease and cancer, and can even help those suffering from depression.
Do you take vitamins? If so which brand?
Now on to the recipe…hope you like it!
