I had a purple and an orange sweet potato laying around, so I decided to make sweet potato fries and try dipping them in some of that agave mustard hummus dressing I'm in love with. I seasoned the sweet potatoes with salt and pepper, turmeric, cayenne, and garlic powder.
For dinner, since it was Tuesday and all, I made pantry tacos! I had an avocado that neded to be used, and I still need to use the tofutti sour cream, so it all spelled taco!
I also wanted to share a recent experience I had with the healing benefits of turmeric. On Sunday, I woke up with the biggest pain in the back of my knee. I couldn't bend it without severe pain, and it was a little swollen. I have no idea what happened, it literally happened overnight. I didn't know what to do, I don't have medical insurance(never have as an adult) and to be honest it was scary. I went around my morning as usual, and decided that maybe taking a walk would help. It did not. I got home and it was worse. To bend it at all like to sit made me actually yelp in pain. I was getting really scared and upset, it really sucks to feel so scared and helpless. Anyway, I remembered that I had some turmeric root in my fridge, along with a small knob of ginger root. I blended the two and made a really powerful mix. I drank a shot of it Sunday, and also used turmeric on all of my food that day. Monday, I woke up to pain, but a lot less. I did another shot on Monday, as well as adding powdered turmeric to my food, and adding turmeric root to my green juice. Yesterday it was even better, and I had turmeric in my green juice, and turmeric with my breakfast. Today I would say I'm about 90 to 95%. Here is a great article about some of the amazing benefits of turmeric if you're interested. I'm no doctor, hell I can't even go to a doctor, but I know what I experience in my own body, and it seems giving myself a high dose of turmeric really sped up the healing process. Because Sunday was a very painful day for me. I'm noticing that turmeric root is becoming more and more available at regular groceries. It looks like ginger, but skinnier and a little darker. And powdered turmeric is super easy to find. It's easy to add a dash here and there to food because it has such a mild flavor. Anyway, I am a believer!
