Wellness Tuesday Tips: Golden Milk

Feeling a little low down with the grey days? When the sunshine is stuck behind the clouds we start looking for bring it in other ways.

Boy, do I have a treat for you!

Daily I make a frothy cup of Golden Milk; I adore hot drinks in the winter. Turmeric, the main ingredient, will help your body reduce inflammation, while new studies suggest it greatly benefits brain health.

A nourishing way to prep for sleep, it helps to melt away muscle tension from being out in the cold.

Occasionally, it is my morning drink with cacao, maca and matcha tea powder. An alternative to coffee, it’s a powerful jumpstart to your day with a fraction of the caffine.

You can find Golden Milk in the Wellness dept. on aisle 6. I use either Garden of Life or Gaia brands or if you prefer the bulk turmeric in aisle 2 is also an option.
