Golden Milk

You may have heard about this in recent months/years but for some it’s new.  Golden Tea – or Turmeric Tea as it’s also known is a delicious (honestly, delicious) warm beverage to consider for this winter season.

I love warm drinks but sometimes grow tired of watery tea and want something more full and robust in flavour.  I secretly love hot chocolates and cafe mocha’s but need to drink on rare occasions as caffeine and I are not great friends.

So, why choose turmeric in your warm milk beverage?  Here are some reasons:

-it’s a strong antioxidant

-decreases inflammation

-supports liver detoxification

-aids in digestive function

-great for sports injuries

-it’s an anti-microbial

-cardiovascular support

-great at whitening teeth

So, it’s pretty fantastic and wonderful when used in a delicious recipe.  There are many recipes out there for Golden Milks/Lattes, etc but this is my favourite.  Turmeric Tea/Golden Tea Recipe from Wellness Mama

This tea may not be right for you, so always check with your Naturopathic Doctor before drinking (especially if frequently) to ensure it’s the right match for you, your health condition or medications you are currently taking.

Hope you enjoy.

The Best Christmas Drink Ever

Posted on: December 8th, 2011 by Dr. Amanda Sue Cressman

I am always looking for healthy ways to enjoy some of your favourite foods.  I adore hot chocolate, especially throughout the holiday season when you want to curl up under a blanket and enjoy a thick, warm drink.  But unfortunately, for many of us, we don’t do that well with dairy products.

A nice alternative that has hit shelves this season is Vitasoy: Mint Chocolate Soy Beverage.  This company uses non-GMO, Pure Canadian and Organic Soy Beans. It is THE tastiest mint chocolate combination I have had and really helps those dairy-sensitive to lactose-intolerant individuals enjoy this holiday treat.

Check it out and let me know what you think…
