Whether or not you’re a fan of turmeric’s taste, we can all agree that turmeric is one of those foods that work wonders for your health. Personally, there are times when I’m really into the flavor of turmeric, and other times when it can feel really overpowering. For that reason, I often forget to include it in my meals out of fear I’m going to mess with the other flavors. But recently, I’ve been trying to incorporate turmeric back into my diet in ways that I actually enjoy.
Cue New Chapter® Fermented Turmeric Booster Powder. I’ve taken turmeric pills before, and I find that I just forget to take them. But I’ve been keeping New Chapter’s booster powders next to my blender so I am always reminded to add them to the different foods and drinks I make. Plus the taste isn’t overwhelming at all, which is a huge plus for me.
This powder delivers the benefits of regular turmeric, but since it is fermented, it’s more easily digestible and it unleashes immune-boosters called beta glucans. Additionally, the fermentation makes nutrients more available. This Fermented Turmeric Booster Powder is formulated to support healthy cognitive and cardiovascular functions and a healthy inflammation response.* You can add it to everything from juices to smoothies, or you can take the savory route like I did and add it to dips or baked goods.
I am a big hummus person, and I’ve found that making my own hummus at home is so much better! I’ve also found that I can actually enjoy the flavors of turmeric when it’s mixed into something like a hummus. Adding the turmeric booster powder is very easy, and it also adds a really great subtle flavor to the hummus. This is going to be a staple in my household moving forward. Serve it with pita chips or carrots, or even add it to your salad for added nutrients.
