Turmeric, spicing up our foods!

I was lucky enough to receive organic Turmeric to review and test out. I've heard lots of things about the benefits of curcumin but had not yet put it to the test. Curcumin is the main ingredient in turmeric and often found in dishes containing curry. It's an anti-inflammatory and touted as helpful for neurological issues including ADHD, autism, and dementia. I'm obviously not a doctor or natural medicine practitioner but we figure if there is even a chance it has some positive benefits it's worth a try. Turmeric has been used for over 4,000 years!

While it can easily be used in cooked dishes, the flavor of turmeric needs to then be taken in to consideration. In order to hide that goodness from picky kids, we went with smoothies!! I was able to dose both kiddos without major complaints. 

It mixed in well and was barely detectable once we were done. My children have since eaten smoothies numerous times with it. I love that the Organic Wise product is available on Amazon and certified organic. It ships timely and in a sealing pouch you can continue to use. It's a vibrant color and has the potent smell/taste all great Turmeric should! Give it a try if you're in the market for turmeric!! #OrganicWise
