Turmeric/Ginger Mix: The Cold Killer

I love this little concoction. It's easy (well except for the ginger-peeling part), tasty and makes you feel like you're doing something soooo good for your body.

There are tons of claims about the benefits of both turmeric and ginger. Some people say turmeric kills bacteria and fungus, eliminates boils, reduces inflmation - and even kills cancer cells. Ginger is supposed to help with digestion and respiration and reduce cold symptoms.

Pineapple contains bromelain which is a digestive enzyme that some say reduces inflamation and clears the sinuses.

Put them together, and this snack is one powerful little cold-killer!

  • 1/2 cup pineapple (preferably fresh, but if you can't find it, use organic canned)

  • 1-2 inch section of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped fine, in food processor

  • 1-2 TBS turmeric


  • Mix together and feel the burn! (You might want to add the ginger incrementally, until you develop a tolerance for the ginger burn. I love it, but then I'm kind of a nut.)
