Turmeric Chai

Turmeric is a natural anti inflammatory that can alleviate muscle and joint pain as well as headaches and allergy symptoms. My friend gifted me a box of Numi Organic Golden Chai. I simply followed the directions on the box and of course added cinnamon and honey! (I’m the vegan that uses honey). Honey also alleviates seasonal allergies and cinnamon is a natural antiviral/antibacterial agent.

  • Numi Organic Golden Chai, 1 heaping teaspoon
  • 8oz unsweetened almond milk
  • 1-2tbs honey
  • Dash of cinnamon

Combine all ingredients into sauce pan and heat on low until warm. Enjoy!

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries satiate a deep desire for junk food. They are so easy to prepare. Mustard tends to be my condiment of choice (team mustard), AND it doesn’t have added sugar-WIN!

Heat oven to 425 degrees

  • Slice sweet potatoes into fries
  • Toss with grape seed oil and spices (I used salt, pepper, garlic, onion, smoked paprika, and chili powder)
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until crispy (you may turn at 10 minutes).
  • Time to cook may vary depending on quantity of fries and thickness of cut.
