Turmeric is an amazing root. It can be made into a tea and drank twice a day to improve your metabolism, and help you shed those hard to lose extra pounds.
It also helps with inflammation and has many health benefits.
2c. turmeric root washed and chopped
Wash turmeric roots and brush with vegetable brush. Place roots in food processor or high powered blender and blend into a paste, add a little water to get a smooth consistency. Put 1 1/2 tablespoons of turmeric in a cup with 1/2 squeezed lime and one tablespoon honey. Pour in hot water, stir and drink it down. It surprisingly tastes good!
Store extra turmeric paste in freezer, and it will stay good for a year.
This tea can be made with turmeric powder. Just use 1 teaspoon with same recipe.
