Cause you health is your greatest wealth
Hey guys, good morning & Happy Thursday! I have been totally lacking with the recipe posts (well just posts in general let’s be honest.) Things have been pretty crazy here with course work & I have also been video editing from my trip to India. I was also in Hong Kong for vacation which was amazing – lots of nice veggie options in that part of the world – be sure to get in touch if you want any recommendations!
Anyway I think maybe due to all the craziness, my body is frantically screaming at me ‘OMG will you slow down you crazy so & so’. Now I NEVER get sick, especially since going vegan (& no I am not just saying that lol). But this week I haven’t felt good, just pretty crap in general. I’ve learned from experience that it is super important to listen to your body and take some time off & I am not a very productive person if I don’t feel great.
What you eat plays a huge part in how you feel on a day-to-day basis; it determines how strong your immune system is, how quickly you can fight off infection & sickness when it comes to mess up your life (even when you have a super busy weekend ARGH). One of my absolute fave ingredients as you guys know is Turmeric, especially when I feel bad. This little beauty of a powder is a natural painkiller & possesses an amazing strong anti-oxidant.(Read more about why I am obsessed with Turmeric on my blog post ‘What’s the deal with Turmeric?’)
I chucked some of this super hero powered into my oatmeal yesterday morning & it tasted great & I wanted to share the recipe with you guys. I used 1/2 tbsp. of turmeric, but if you don’t like the taste so much you can add a little less, but I would recommend trying to sweeten it with maple syrup before reducing the turmeric amount. I topped my turmeric oatmeal with powerful little treats including blueberries, pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries but you can go with whatever. I hope you guys found this post useful & if you are feeling like crap I hope you feel better soon! Lots of love Jess xx
