HOW TO MAKE YOURSELF HAPPY?
Last year #goldenmilk became my favorite autumn-winter drink, which you can also find as turmeric latte, turmeric chai, turmeric tea. This ancient Ayurvedic drink was recently added to my repertoire at home, and whoever comes my place will be offered this drink to give it a try.
I’m not a big coffee drinker, I never felt like it would give me anything beyond the delicious taste of coffee, and in the past year(s) I’ve become more and more aware that it’s just not increasing my energy levels, but specifically lowering them. So I understandably try to find some other nutritious drink for the winter days when something needs to warm me up. (It’s fantastic to experience when eating healthy, caring for the body is no longer a “must” coming from outside, but a motivation coming from deep inside that is nurtured by self-love.)
In addition to the golden turmeric, this spicy drink also contains other warming spices, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, and you can even add cardamom, star anise, vanilla, and of course divine delicious honey. You can also make it with vegetable milk or regular milk.
Why is it good for you to drink golden milk?
❤️Hundreds of studies show that turmeric is more effective at reducing inflammation than many pharmaceuticals. Cinnamon and ginger also have an anti-inflammatory effect, they are also very good for joint health.
🧡 Rich in antioxidants.
💛 It also benefits your brain, helps your memory.
💚 You will simply feel better, as it can reduce anxiety and depression.
💙 Stimulates digestion.
💜 Because turmeric contains phytoestrogen (plant estrogen), it helps regulate hormone balance even during menopause. So it is a highly recommended drink for women.
🖤 And because you’re doing yourself a favor, you’re expressing that you love yourself, you love your body, you take care of it, which alone feels like winning the lottery.🤍
