Hello “Hello Fresh”

In an attempt to streamline my life, reduce stress levels & ensure I eat well I’ve signed up for Hello Fresh. Each Sunday a box of food will be delivered to my doorstep with three recipes. Everything I need to prepare the three meals is in the box. I’m really excited about this as I’m a little bored of cooking the same food each week. I am really looking forward to trying new vegetarian recipes.

Turmeric tonic

I’m allergic to anti-inflammatories and aspirin which is annoying given my current health concerns. Several times I’ve been told turmeric is a good natural anti-inflammatory. I’ve taken it as tablets and eaten it in my curries; but to be honest I’ve not noticed much of a difference.

But I don’t give up easily, so I thought I’d try juicing it.

In the juicer: 2-3 lemons, a big chunk of ginger and some fresh turmeric. I probably used 7-8 bits. This makes a little bottle of concentrate which I’ve been drinking with hot water. It tastes quite nice, a bit earthy which is offset by the lemon and ginger.

I think I’ll take this for 2-3 weeks and then make a call on if it’s making a difference.
