Golden Girl

Living with hypothyroid & a hormone imbalance is not a walk in the park. The high times are in clouds & on the low days, my body doesn’t even feel like mine anymore. Since my young 20’s, I thought I had my “healthy” lifestyle on lock, but now climbing upper 20’s ( blah sounds weird to say), there’s no denying our bodies change with age & it’s important to stay consistent & making adjustments to keep our temples strong. 

In need of a hormone reboot, I’m making some dietary adjustments to cut out gluten, caffeine, & processed sugar. Saying goodbye to all the things that I love to eat & drink at first seems like a prison, but then I remember my efforts now will make all the difference in the future.

Letting go of coffee has been the hardest to deal with (it’s only been 4 days so far haha). Nothing makes a girl more happy than a fresh steaming cup first thing in the morning. The problem was I wouldn’t just make a cup I’d brew a whole pot & drink it throughout the day #OD.  Yes, coffee has wonderous health benefits but only 8oz a day. If overly sipped the caffeine can take a significant toll on how the body functions. 

Going cold turkey off the bean & heartbroken over losing the comfort of a warm beverage during chilly months I did what I do best which is raid Pinterest for some inspiration. The golden spice Tumeric kept popping up in helping with balancing out hormones & also digestive support. Who knew God provides all the things we need to stay healthy right in our own kitchen cabinets? Pulling from a few recipes along with experimenting over the stove I created my own version of Tumeric (Golden) milk. It’s DELISH & contains benefits your body will love you for.

Try it for yourself!

Golden Milk (Dairy Free)

Cashew Milk (1 Cup)

Local Honey (1tsp)

Nutmeg ( 1/2 tsp)

Cinnamon stick 

Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp) 

Place ingredients in a pot & occasionally for about 10 minutes. Serve iced or hot either way is delicious. For storage, I just used mason jars & stick it in the fridge making it accessible while on the go. 

Why is Tumeric the golden spice?

 Anti-inflammatory: Researchers attribute the potent antioxidant properties of turmeric to one of its component, curcumin. Curcumin not only finds utility in food as spice and coloring agent but also in cosmetics and medicine for its anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties. 

Anti-aging: In rats, the topical application of Curcumin in the skin of mice significantly inhibited the activity of Ultraviolet rays. The inhibitory effects were attributed to Curcumin’s ability to scavenge reactive oxygen species, otherwise free radicals. The safety profile adds to the credibility of the compound for sunscreen manufacturers to a greater extent.
