Everywhere you look turmeric is stealing the spotlight on the spice rack stage.

Nutritionists adore this tuber for its numerous health benefits; turmeric detoxifies, it is an anti-inflammatory, and treats everything from depression, to skin issues and gut problems. This golden-yellow spice contains the chemical Curcumin, which is also touted to improve the digestion of fats and sugars.

Grit Cycle is a big fan of turmeric, it helps us recover from our sessions in the saddle room, staves off the flu and colds, and we like its acclaimed preventative functions for brain health.

Turmeric Tea or Golden Milk is a popular way to consume this miracle spice. Many people like to make it before bedtime because it boost stress relief and relaxation.


  • 2 cups of milk of choice {almond, pecan, coconut and dairy all work in this recipe}
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey or maple syrup
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Tiny piece of fresh, peeled ginger root or 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper {optional}


    1. First, blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
    2. Then, Pour into a small sauce pan and heat for 3-5 minutes over medium heat until hot but not boiling.
    3. Drink immediately

One of the great power couples is Turmeric combined with Black Pepper; this combination makes the nutrients better absorbed in the body.

Curmucin can also be a potent pain reliever and is believed to boost both the immune system and cognitive brain function, thus staving off Alzheimer’s Disease.

We are thrilled to carry this dynamic, DELICIOUS, duo in our Grit fridge! Nekter’s Skinny Lemonade in the Turmeric flavor, carries both the hallowed spice AND its vital sideKICK, black pepper; it’s the perfect hydrator after class.

Turmeric is a delicious, warm tasting spice, very similar to curry.

How do you like to take YOUR turmeric.

Wishing you a healthy Tuesday Gritties!
