The Be Well Coach: Turmeric Smoothie

by Leslie O’Neill

Happy Friday!

spicesThis week’s smoothie features includes one of my favorite spices that in my experience offers a tremendous medicinal value to our bodies. Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine.


Turmeric root can be purchased whole in the produce section of some grocery stores or in the spice isle already ground. If you would like to learn more about turmeric and all the noted benefits click here.
