Recently, I’ve been on a turmeric kick. This powerful spice contains active enzymes that fight inflammation, protect our body against free radical damage, and in some studies have even proven to lower the risk of cancer. Combined with ginger, these spices will help to fight an upset stomach, ease digestion, and reduce any inflammation you might be experiencing. The sweet, but also savory combination of taste, makes this oatmeal perfect for any time of the day. Sometimes I eat this for breakfast topped with a sliced banana. Sometimes, when I’m feeling a little more adventurous, I top this with fresh spinach and a fried egg for a mid day pick me up. What would you top this vitamin rich bowl of oatmeal with? Go ahead, be creative!
