Turmeric Tea | Health Benefits and Recipe

I made this turmeric tea recently, and several people have asked me for the recipe so I decided to share it with everyone.

Paleo Hot Chocolate

Paleo Hot Chocolate AltBeing that practically the entire east coast has just been slammed with snow, a paleo hot chocolate would be a great way for us all to bring this weekend to a close. Escape from all that snow, and get warm with this delicious paleo hot chocolate. I used 72% cacao chocolate. Using real chocolate, rather than powdered cocoa, makes this paleo hot chocolate rich, dark and creamy. Just make sure you’re choosing high quality chocolate without gluten, soy and dairy in order to keep it paleo. The coconut sugar gives it a caramel-y sweetness, but feel free to adjust the amount based on your taste. The sea salt and vanilla extract bring out all of the flavor, so don’t even think about skipping these secret ingredients. The coconut whipped cream adds even more creaminess and is the perfect topping to brighten up the rich chocolate. You can cut this paleo hot chocolate recipe in half for an individual serving, or double it for a family of 4. Whether you are snowed in or not, please join me in cozying up tonight with a warm mug full of this delicious paleo hot chocolate!

It also strengthens hair, skin, nails, brain, joints (the list goes on!) and reduces cellulite to boot. This is a perfect way to round out our nutrition allowing us to get important nutrients that we typically do not get such as gelatin, collagen, and the valuable amino acids proline and glycine. So when I found myself with bones from a leftover rotisserie chicken, I figured now was the time to give homemade bone broth a try for myself.
