Just wanted to share with you something I drank all summer long.

Just wanted to share with you something I drank all summer long.

September is a great month to reflect on the summer, regroup, evaluate new goals and think about where are you going from now until the end of the year.

Homemade Masala Bread with turmeric

Homemade Masala Bread with turmeric

One of my fondest memories growing up was waking up to the welcomed aromas of homemade baked bread on a long weekend Sunday.

For Mother’s Day this past weekend, I wanted to recreate that exact same bread that my mother used to make for us (Mom deserves some love back!)…but with a masala turmeric twist!

Carrot & Garlic Soup with Turmeric – I made this three times last week!

As we welcome in fall, I find my body takes some time to adjust to cooler temperatures. Naturally, we seek comfort and warmth through food and you may find yourself  adjusting your diet to more warming foods.

I made this Carrot & Garlic Soup with Turmeric three times last week!! Since I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it with you.

For this recipe I used “Music” variety. It’s mild and sweet making it easy to consume a couple of cloves at a time!

Here’s my new skin care regimen ~ Turmeric & Honey Scrub.

A couple of weeks ago I experienced an allergic reaction to something that gave me major skin irritation..all over!
