There are 2 things we can all agree on: health is everything, and time is precious. So we wanted to chat a bit about GOLDEN PASTE, because that gives us plenty of both. A health giving elixir that is quick and easy to make, and quick and easy to take. Taking turmeric is a crazy-effective way of reducing inflammation, and inflammation is the primary cause of dis-ease in the body. So having turmeric regularly, no matter what your age or stage of health, can only be a good thing! Here is a simple recipe to help you have Turmeric at hand. A bit of this daily (you do not need more than 1 teaspoon per day), can help repair and prevent a multitude of ailments for yourself, your family, and even your pets! GOLDEN PASTE INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup ground turmeric1 cup water (and keep 1 cup of water extra in reserve, if needed)2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper1/4 cup coconut oil (use raw, unrefined, cold-pressed). You can also swop this out for linseed oil or virgin olive oil if you prefer. Turmeric is incredibly effective on its own, but sometimes we would like a little delicious variety, so we can always add other yummies like cinnamon and ginger. These also can really add to the efficacy. So you could add: 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated. Fresh ginger is generally easy to find, but you can also use a ground ginger instead. GOLDEN PASTE RECIPE: Using a small saucepan, bring the turmeric and water to a boil.Lower heat and simmer until you have a thick paste.Gently stir for around 10 minutes.If needed, slowly add the extra water.Remove from heat BEFORE adding pepper and oil - allow to cool firstStir in well to mix the oil thoroughlyAllow to cool again (if coconut oil is hard, it should melt in the mixture). This will leave you with about one cup of Golden Paste. Bottle it in a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid and keep in fridge. It should last up to 2 weeks, during which time we encourage you to take it regularly! DOSE: Start with 1/4 of a teaspoon, twice a day (with food and water), and build up to 3 - 4 times a day. It is most effective when taken in smaller ‘doses’, 3-4 times daily.DIFFERENT WAYS TO TAKE YOUR GOLDEN PASTE: Wash down ½ teaspoon with a little water (if you’re in a hurry, this is a simple way to get your daily quota).Adding some raw honey enhances the health benefits AND makes it very pleasant to the taste.
