Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to conquer the day!
Sometimes after a weekend you might feel you need a good gut cleanse to start the week off right. Here's a tea that sounds like it will do the trick! #antiinflammatorytea
Chronic inflammation will produce disease. So eating a diet low in inflammatory foods is key. But sometimes you need a little extra. I make a nice anti-inflammatory drink which helps when I need to bring down the inflammation even more. Tastes yummy too.
4 cups of water
Turmeric root 2-3 inches long, peeled and chopped or two tablespoons of dried turmeric
Ginger root 2-3 inches peeled and chopped
Juice of two lemons🍋
Honey to taste (not too much 😄) Boil water turmeric and ginger for 20 minutes. Strain and add lemon juice and honey to water. I like mine chilled. I drink two glasses a day. #nutritioncoach#nutritioncoachkerri#nutrionist#turmeric#ginger#antiinflammatorytea#antiinflammatoryfoods
ANTIINFLAMMATORY TEA RECIPE
The curcumin in turmeric fights chronic inflammation. Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti inflammatory
compounds including six different pain, swelling and inflammation inhibitors
Ginger is widely known for its anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties, and its ability to alleviate symptoms of gastrointestinal distress by relaxing and soothing the intestinal tract
The seeds of Nigella Sativa have been widely used in the treatment of different diseases and ailments. According to research, it is antidiabetic, analgesic, anticancer, antimicrobial, gastro-protective, antiinflammatory etc. Black cumin has been described as a "miracle herb," and its name in old Latin, "Panacea," means "cure all
My Tea Recipe

Pour all of the above into a cup and simmer i.e do not boil. Just pour hot water over it and cover for about 10-15 minutes
Sipping on this tonight while I catch up on work. Achy joints need extra attention! It’s soothing and immune boosting! Drinking it before bed actually helps you have a more restful sleep while boosting your immunity while you sleep.

The secret spice actually is the curcumin in the turmeric that has numerous health benefits. Curcumin has been extensively studied. It has shown benefits to support digestion as well as alleviate inflammation in your digestion system. boost immunity, reduce inflammation due to osteoarthritis to name a few and has numerous studies in reduction in many types of cancer. 🔅 🔅 🔅
Too many benefits not to include this in your diet several times a week! Tonight I used cashew milk but I you can use any non-dairy milk such as almond or coconut or any combo of them both.

Been fighting a cold all week (sore throat, brutal headaches, low energy) and I'm pretty sure the two beers I had last night didn't help 🙈. It's all about balance though, right? 😉. Anyway, I thought I'd start today off right and try to kick this bug before it really kicks my a$$. .
I started my morning with a double dose of warm lemon water and then followed it with this turmeric & ginger tea latte. Both ginger and turmeric are potent anti-inflammatories and help fight disease in the body. .
To make this tea, simply add the following ingredients to a high speed blender and blend for about a minute.
What you need: 2 cups boiling water, an inch of fresh turmeric root (peeled), 2 inches fresh ginger root (peeled), a half teaspoon of ground cinnamon, a half cup of your favourite nut milk (I used coconut), a tablespoon of coconut oil and a teaspoon of raw honey 🍯. I got this recipe from the @joyoushealth blog - it's easy to make, delicious and suuuuper healthy. This is a great tea to drink, not only when you're sick but as an everyday, health boosting treat! .
Fresh Anti-Inflammatory Tea - nip a cold in the bud: + Fresh Grated Ginger + • High levels of antioxidants and contains a bioactive compound called Gingerol which fights infection, bacterial growths, and inflammation.

+ Collagen Peptides + • Helps build the tissues that line the GI tract, protecting the integrity of the immune system which is largely located just outside the intestinal wall. Also can help boost metabolism.

This gorgeous drink will start your days off right! Full of anti-oxidants and vitamin C it contains: 🌿Organic green tea 🌿Organic white tea
🌸Organic hibiscus flowers
I cold steep all three together overnight and then drink in the morning with a dash of lemon juice. Both steps maximize the anti-oxidant power of the green and white teas.
It's delicious and packed with skin clearing nutrients!
Turmeric has long been known in ayurvedic medicine as a powerful spice with antiinflammatory and antioxidative properties. Excelent when added to a fresh brew of Tuwawi's Restoration Blend topping off all the warming chai spices. Sprinkle and stir in some black pepper too to activate the turmeric.

This TURMERIC ELIXIR is so good! Add 1.5 cups of hot coconut milk to your blender (simply heat on stove), then add in: 1 tsp ground turmeric, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1 tbsp sunflower lecithin, 1 tbsp Collagen, pinch of sea salt. Blend together, pour into your favorite mug, do a little dance and enjoy! 👌You can sweeten it with some raw honey, but I found it just perfect without the added sugar. *
This amazing elixir contains anti-inflammatory properties, supports blood sugar, energy, detoxes the liver and fuels your brain. #turmericelixir#healingtea

Simmer 10 min.
Put thru a strainer.
Add lemon and some maple syrup or honey.
It is the bomb! And no joke warms you up from the core.
#antiinflammatory at its most potent!! Not my recipe...can't remember where I saw it online.
Gave this golden milk idea a try today to start the day off on the right foot, and it was wonderful! Thanks to @jewelsstelloh for the suggestion! My body is in a constant state of inflammation so this was a welcome present to myself today!
Start making #teatime part of your #fall#ritual not only will you warm your body with #nourishing liquids but you can customize a tea blend to what is currently ailing you or tone a system that needs a little extra attention psi to it. It allows you to grow a deeper connection with the plants when you learn about them and make a blend that works for you. Or go to your #local herb store and pick up one of their blends.
The Standard American Diet (SAD) is a highly inflammatory diet, so it's no wonder most of us are walking around with inflammation of some sort. Wondering why you can't seem to kick those last few pounds? It might be inflammation!
I've tried just about every anti-inflammatory herb out there, and this one is right up there as one of the most well known and effective: Licorice root! *WHO IT'S FOR: If you have (or suspect you have) leaky gut, IBS or any other kind of digestive inflammation, you should be incorporating licorice root tea. *BENEFITS: Licorice root can heal wounded and inflamed gut tissue by coating the digestive tract and forming a temporary protective lining to fend off bad gut microbes while encouraging production of beneficial gut bacteria.
Additionally, licorice root is a remedy for adrenal fatigue, gently supporting the adrenal glands' ability to product hormones.
It has MANY other benefits too, and has a very sweet flavor (without any sugar) so it can curb your sweet tooth while packing in all these benefits! *HOW TO DRINK IT: Drink 1-2 cups/day. Steep 1 tea bag or up to 1 tbsp loose tea leaves in hot water for about 10 minutes. *PRO TIP: For additional digestive support for those with slow elimination, mix licorice root with dandelion root (see my previous post on that) for a gentle laxative. >> (Sign up to receive a comprehensive FREE PDF at the end of this series with all of this information plus my recommended brands >> )
