When I’m asked what my favorite spice is, I always say turmeric. It’s my absolute favourite spice in the kitchen. However, there are also many other spices that you might already have in your cupboard and that are true champs. I highly recommend to use them as often as you can. Spice up your life! Healthy and very tasty, such as this power pudding. This pudding is bursting with all the superfoods such as turmeric, ginger, and ground cloves.
Herbs and spices can be high in antioxidants.
If you would know how powerful turmeric truly is, you would sprinkle it on your food every day.
I use turmeric every day. Either in my golden milk, over my veggies or in my porridge, in my smoothies, juices or as a supplement when I travel. But please know that a supplement has not such a big impact as dried or fresh turmeric
It is best to combine turmeric with some black pepper. Even a tiny bit can boost the curcumin levels in your blood, but it’s still difficult to absorb turmeric fully.
According to dr. Greger there’s evidence that raw turmeric has greater anti-inflammatory effects, while cooked turmeric offers better DNA protection.
Cloves are an amazing antioxidant and absolute contain the highest levels of antioxidant of all spices. Some researchers say the healthiest foods on earth (per weight) are cloves and oregano…Could it be?
This pudding also contains a good amount of cinnamon and chia seeds…. Pretty much a power pudding if you ask me.
