    Notes

    While there are many tasty ways to incorporate curcumin into your diet, one of the easiest ways is by making turmeric tea. This creamy turmeric tea recipe combines the power of curcumin with other potent cancer fighting spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.



    1Coconut nectar can be found in some specialty grocery stores and is readily available online. Coconut nectar is exceptionally high in enzymes, nutrient rich, and is low glycemic, so it’s an excellent sugar substitute.

    2Lakanto (Wholesome Sweeteners Brand) is a one to one sugar substitute available at Whole Foods. This is a superior sweetener for ketogenic diets and low glycemic needs.
