Daily Turmeric and Flax Mix

Daily Turmeric and Flax Mix
1 c flax, 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp pepper

Part of the Daily Dozen includes 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed and 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric each day.

These two foods come pretty close to a magic bullet for their awesomeness. That's kind of how the Daily Dozen works; it encourages us to regularly consume the foods that have been shown through scientific evidence to be most helpful to our health (berries, broccoli, and beans also come to mind!).

Just take a look at the 48 nutritionfacts.org videos featuring turmeric, or the 33 videos on flaxseed.

Adding a dash of pepper to your turmeric significantly increases its potency and beneficial effects.

Instead of measuring this out each day, you can make a large batch, and just take a spoonful of the mix each day.

The following recipe provides 16 days worth:

Daily Turmeric and Flax Mix
1 c ground flaxseed (16 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon (16 quarter teaspoons)
1 teaspoon pepper (16 pinches)

Try stirring your spoonful into just a few ounces of water and gulping it down, add a bit more water to your cup to make sure none of the goodness has gone to waste!

Someone who took one of my classes, then took up the habit of daily flax, and called it their daily SAWDUST! But really it is hardly different from taking some other daily pill. Only this is just food! With many POSITIVE SIDE EFFECTS.

I love the sense of accomplishment by checking off two checkmarks so quickly and easily!

My 13-year-old daughter is even trying it out as a possible remedy to her sore knees and ankles as she starts off a busy fall season with lots of practices, and legs that are getting longer by the day (lucky girl!).

Check out the following definitions of pinch, dash, and smidgen from the Accuracy Project.

Just tried it, Colleen! Tried the “golden milk”:recipe once but couldn’t drink it. This was such a small amount - I could do it. 👍
