When it comes to experimenting with spices, turmeric is often the one that you’ll hear about the most. This is because, apart from having an incredible taste, this spice has been linked to a multitude of health benefits. Did you know that it has been found to support a normal healthy digestive system?
How To Add Turmeric To Your Diet
The great thing about turmeric is that it can be added to a whole range of foods, making it accessible to even the fussiest of eaters. Read on to discover how to add turmeric to your diet.
1. Golden Milk
‘Golden Milk’ is the fancy name given to a turmeric latte. Simply heat your turmeric with warm milk to create a cup of spicy, frothy, goodness.
Turmeric lattes are a popular favourite during autumn when the spiced drinks come out in force. There’s nothing greater than starting a chilly day with some golden milk!
2. Salad Dressing
If you’re someone that desperately tries to make salads more interesting, you’re in luck. Turmeric can be sprinkled into near enough any salad dressing for a spicy kick. To create a healthier alternative, you could even try making the salad dressing from scratch with help from olive oil and apple cider vinegar.
3. Egg Dishes
Most egg dishes will benefit from a dash of turmeric, but we particularly recommend trying it out with scrambled eggs. For best results, put a teaspoon of turmeric into your egg mixture when mixing. If the end result needs more flavour, simply sprinkle some more on top.
Turmeric scrambled eggs go amazingly with sourdough bread; consider pairing these two together if you’re having a brunch or lunch dish!
4. Roasted Vegetables
Roasted vegetables are great for you, but more times than not, we cover them in too many flavourings to reap the nutritional benefits. To get a punchy flavour without the added calories, sprinkle turmeric over your roasted veggies before cooking them next time. The turmeric carries more than enough flavour to transform the dish without going overboard.
Adding some turmeric to your hummus will be sure to transform it in an instant. Whether eating as a tasty snack or using it as a side dish, once you’ve tried spiced hummus, you’ll never go back.

Try adding a quarter of a teaspoon of turmeric into your smoothie mixture and see if you like the taste. Adding just a small amount won’t overpower the smoothies original taste, meaning you can enjoy the health benefits without sacrificing on a yummy smoothie!
