I’m always looking for healthy ways of living, but … practical and eatable. This means it shouldn’t cost me a lot of time, especially in the morning. We are busy enough to get on time for our first appointment. And at least, it should taste normal. Sometimes I got tips about heathy things and they just taste disgusting. Think of using goat milk in your coffee instead of cow milk…this will indeed screw up your favo coffee break. And don’t touch that break! It’s one of my best breaks during the day. Will tell you more about it in my blog ‘Dying for a Coffee Break’ in a couple of weeks.
OK back to the subject … It’s always good to start the day in a healthy way. The Golden morning shot is the golden start of the day. And why? It is healthy and takes 5 minutes to make ones a week and 20 sec to do daily. Isn’t that easy!
So what is this golden tip for a golden start of the day? What I call the Golden Morning Shot, is also called ‘Golden Honey Mixture’ or ‘Magic Turmeric Elixir’. My father, who has cancer, advised me to start eating this on a daily basis. To convince myself more, I have read lots of articles about it. Below items caught my attention:
‘A magic turmeric honey elixir to fight seasonal allergies and inflammation.’
‘It’s a spice that I try to add to my meals as often as possible. Not only is it a great anti-inflammatory, it has also been shown to have powerful antioxidant and anti-cancer properties..’
According to Ayurveda scriptures, it is the strongest antibiotic, and it is a mixture of turmeric, raw honey, and black pepper. This potent antibiotic fights bacterial and viral infections, strengthens the immune system and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that soothe seasonal allergies. It improves digestion, supports the beneficial gut flora, and has no side-effects.
Always do your own research on health matters, some will work for you and some won’t. So by saying this, I also need to write that I cannot take any responsibility on this health tip. It’s your own responsibility to use it.
Ok, let’s give you the recipe for this golden morning shot …
