If you are having trouble including these anti-inflammatory spices in your diet, here is an alternative to supplements. Actually quite tasty! I believe this tea is popular in Okinawa, Japan. Just remember turmeric stains. I make mine in an old mason jar, wrapped in an old tea towel! Turmeric is used for medicinal purposes in India.
- 2 cups water
- ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
- ½ teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (Optional)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 lemon wedge
- Step 1
Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan; add turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain tea into a large glass; add honey and lemon wedge.
Maple syrup can be substituted for the honey, if desired.
