DECEMBER 22: Turmeric and lemon

Fresh turmeric slices preserved in fresh lemon juice


Having a few slices of turmeric and a teaspoon of the lemon juice with hot water and a spoon of honey for sweetness is now part of my pre-breakfast routine. 

Superfoods all round, and packed with vitamin C, flavonoids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory goodness. 

This will last around a week in the fridge. Long enough to boost your life force when faced with plates of  Christmas food from chocolate to mince lies and back again to mince pies 🥧 

Top tip … wear rubber gloves when peeling the turmeric to avoid staining your hands.
