Post Holiday Detox with Golden Milk

Golden Milk Mug with Ginger Root

Golden Milk Turmeric Tea

This lightly spiced drink is packed with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties thanks to a dose of turmeric – perfect for detoxing after the holidays. A touch of honey adds just the right amount of sweetness, while the ginger and black pepper add a little heat to the earthiness of the turmeric.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, preferably coconut milk beverage or almond milk
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
  • 1 (1-inch) piece turmeric, unpeeled, thinly sliced, or 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 1 (1/2-inch) piece ginger, unpeeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • Ground cinnamon (for serving)

Whisk coconut milk, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey, coconut oil, peppercorns, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and simmer until flavors have melded, about 10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into mugs and top with a dash of cinnamon. Golden Milk Turmeric Tea can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Warm before serving.

Note:

Using fresh turmeric adds a clean, bright flavor to this drink, but dried turmeric can be substituted when fresh is not Read More

Kale Chips!

Kale chips can be a delicious alternative to potato chips and other snack food. Instead of being filled with starches and simple carbohydrates, kale is a complex carbohydrate full of fiber, vitamin C, A, K, B6 and calcium, potassium, copper and manganese. Kale has fewer calories than potato chips and will not imbalance blood sugar. Kale chips can give us that crunchy, salty thrill while still being a healthy treat for the body. 

For this recipe you will need: 

  • Two tablespoons of olive oil 
  • Two tablespoons of sesame oil 
  • One tablespoon nutritional yeast 
  • A pinch of salt 
  • One bunch of kale 
  • Flat cookie sheet

This recipe is enough to make one cookie sheet worth of kale chips. If you want to make two cookie sheets, simply double the recipe.  

This recipe is super simple, and I love it! Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. While the oven is warming, rinse the kale in your sink, then chop it to pieces around 2-3 inches long in length and one inch long in width. Put the kale in a large bowl and pour in the olive oil and salt. Massage the kale with your hands. This breaks down the cell walls and Read More
