Golden Smoothie Bowl

Turmeric is a culinary spice that has been touted for its promising disease-fighting and anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, after looking at approximately 700 studies regarding at turmeric benefits, Duke concluded that turmeric appears to outperform many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic diseases. And, it has no side effects!

But this relative to ginger isn’t golden just because of what it can do for your health. Whether you’re whipping up breakfast or dinner, turmeric adds a satisfying flavor to a variety of meals…from curry to smoothie bowls.

This Golden Smoothie Bowl recipe is the ideal post-workout recovery meal. Of course, you can make this creamy concoction into a smoothie bowl, or eliminate the toppings and drink it as a protein shake! Either way…it’s delicious.

Not All Protein Shakes Are Created Equal!

Read the Labels and See the Difference! Go to any health food store and you’ll see – there are a lot of protein powders out there! Even if you try to read the labels, it can be tough to navigate through the long list of unfamiliar ingredients. Here’s what I look for in a quality protein:

  •  Digestibility
  •  Quality of Whey
  •  Absorption

If the protein powder you’re using doesn’t have these characteristics, it’s a waste of time and money!
