Cold Weather Tip: During a snap of cold weather

Cold Weather Tip: During a snap of cold weather, you can stay warm and healthy by adding lots of spice to your daily meals, in anything from eggs and turkey sandwiches to pot roasts. One of my favorite spice blends is curry.  Curry contains a healthy dose of turmeric, the warm yellow spice giving it a bright yellow color and anti-inflammatory benefits for the body. Turmeric has been used for ages as a natural healer, and experts often recommend it to keep your brain healthy and help avoid diseases such as Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and cancer. My mom keeps pure turmeric in a salt shaker and shakes it on foods on a daily basis. If you love curry like we do, this is a great healthy habit to keep in the winter and all year round.
