Turmeric powder and turmeric supplements are very anti inflammatory and high antioxidant power; something that we all need for various health concerns and living optimally.
I have made a few different versions of turmeric lattes, so far this is the easiest, tastiest and my hubby loves it, so it's my clear winner!
1 cup of milk
1 tsp of turmeric
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Maple syrup to taste... about 1 tsp to 2 tsp
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a slight bowl, then take off heat, stir well and serve.
Makes 2 small cups.
I love this recipe. It is a staple. I have made it on a regular basis now for years, and over the years I have made the original recipe more healthful. Adding in flaxseed, coconut oil, shredded carrot etc. It is such an easy recipe to add favourite items to. I always think of my godmother when I make this recipe, she is 93 years old now and was the one who first introduced me to her recipe of her homemade banana bread
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
3 ripe bananas
1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
1 egg (OR egg replacements such as: 1 tbsp of ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp of water OR 1/3 cup of applesauce)
1.5 cup of rice flour (wheat, or Bob's Redmill All purpose Flour)
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of vanilla
1 grated carrot (optional)
1 cup of raisins (optional)
Mix together, bake in muffin cups or in an 8x8 pan for 20-30 minutes or until brown on top and cooked all the way through! Makes about 12 regular sized muffins. They freeze well.

I am so glad I found this recipe. I LOVE granola, whether it is for breakfast or for a snack, I could eat it all day everyday. It's tasty with yogurt, almond milk or just on it's own. And my kids are hooked too! But it is hard to find a good granola that doesn't cost a small fortune that is also fairly healthy. A lot of them have tons of sugar added. I found this recipe in the FRESH cookbook, adapted from the FRESH restaurants in Toronto, ON. Enjoy! I have yet to make it for someone who hasn't LOVED it!
Decadent Granola ( from Fresh Cookbook)
