Rising Popularity of Turmeric
I am obsessed with turmeric.
And these days it is super trendy, which is great! That means more and more delicious recipes are popping up with this delicious ingredient, like this tasty Golden Milk Yogurt Bowl.
Golden Milk is a new, popular recipe flooding Pinterest that is made with the combination of turmeric, coconut milk and other spices such as cinnamon or ginger.
But in all actuality, Golden Milk Tea has been around for thousands of years used in the practice of Ayurvedic medicine and is just continuing to regain popularity in today’s mainstream media.Enjoy anti-inflammatory health benefits of Turmeric in this high protein Turmeric Golden Milk Yogurt Bowl!Click To Tweet
The yellow color turmeric brings to a recipe is no doubt gorgeous, but if you’re not a foodie, you may be wondering, what the heck is turmeric?
Let me share with you so the next time you’re at the grocery store, you can’t help but pick up this ‘superfood’ and bring it home to try for yourself 🙂
What is Turmeric?
If you have never heard of it before, turmeric is a spice from the rhizome of the turmeric plant, typically ground into a powder form. Think fresh ginger vs powdered ginger.
Turmeric has been touted as one of the most powerful medicinal plants on the planet today.
You can purchase ground turmeric from just about any grocery store these days, found right in the spice section, or just simply order it directly from Amazon.
I love turmeric and the amazing health benefits that this plant can provide so much that I have put together an entire article exploring the health benefits along with all the different ways you can use it.

The Perfect Breakfast
I am very particular about my breakfasts in the morning. They must be made the night before, and they must be high in protein in order to keep me full until lunch time. That usually leaves me deciding between different versions of egg dishes or Greek yogurt.
But it also must be delicious. Obviously.
But who am I kidding? I am a working mom, and bottom line is that breakfast doesn’t always get made the night before.
Greek yogurt is always my savior. I always keep a large container of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt in the fridge that I can use for just about anything.
For a few weeks there I was really out of my routine and relying on my Greek yogurt nearly every single morning. Which isn’t really a bad thing, you literally just put a cup of yogurt into a container and mix in whatever ingredients you want, depending on the taste you are going for.
The key is knowing which ingredients pair well together in order to create a concoction that you love.
After a few weeks, I had this recipe nailed down and perfection was created.
I love taking this breakfast to work with me at the hospital. It is easy, it is more than satisfying, and it keeps me full until my lunch break.
Plus, the vibrant yellow color is always a friendly conversation starter 😉
