Know that you should be eating turmeric for its multiple benefits, but struggle to find ways to incorporate it into your diet?
Did you know there are more than five thousand articles have been published in the medical literature about curcumin, the principal curcuminoid of turmeric? I know! Well researched indeed.
Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and there is evidence suggesting turmeric can be protective against cancer, and effective in treating osteoarthritis and other inflammatory conditions, such as lupus and inflammatory bowel disease. It increases the antioxidant capacity of the body, improves brain function, lowers your risk of heart disease and is beneficial against depression. Impressive ha?
I made this salad over the weekend and it got such rave reviews at the BBQ we hosted that I knew I had to share it with you all!
Easy and quick to put together, but impressive to the eye and packed full of antioxidant goodness, this is even better eaten the day after once all the flavours have had time to meld together and the raisins time to plump up.
Go give it a go, get your daily dose of turmeric and tickle your taste buds at the same time!
