As stated in my Instagram bio – I have a sugar addiction. It’s a real thing…and I’m not denying it. I’ve managed to get it under control by only indulging once in a while, but if it were up to me I’d treat myself to a dessert after lunch & dinner (and maybe in between). I look forward to dessert more than dinner. My trip to a restaurant usually goes something like “I’ll have a salad with grilled chicken, thanks…hmmm and tell me more about your carrot cake”. #thestruggleisreal.
I’ve tried not eating sweets after meals, but I end up caving and binge eating eventually. It’s just not effective. It wasn’t until I discovered “dessert tea” that I found the solution to my sugar problems.
I’ve noticed that turmeric has grown in popularity lately, which makes sense given it’s amazing health benefits. Here are a few:
and the list goes on! My mom always cooked with turmeric, so growing up I ate it but never appreciated it as much as I do now. I’ve come across some unconventional recipes on Pinterest that use this spice in new and exciting ways, and this one from Pop Sugar stood out to me. I love almond milk, turmeric, and ginger so naturally I wanted to give this one a try. I was not disappointed! It’s a great healthy snack or dessert. If you add some protein powder, you can even enjoy it as a post-workout shake.
I recently purchased a Ninja blender, and I’m having a TON of fun experimenting with it. One of my recent lab sessions resulted in this delicious, energy boosting green smoothie. It’s perfect for an on the go breakfast or afternoon snack. The recipe makes 3-4 servings – if you plan on preparing it in advance, just pop it in the freezer until you’re ready to drink it.
