Shake Up and Sip On Turmeric Milk Tonight

The next time you’re dealing with digestion issues, DOMS, or cold symptoms, mix up this twist on almond milk that’s made from ingredients you already have in your pantry! The stars of this recipe are ginger and turmeric ¡ª two spices with a list of healthy benefits.

Ginger has antimicrobial properties that can stop viruses (like common respiratory infections) before they wreak havoc on your immune system, and it is also a well-known remedy for nausea and digestive issues. Curcumin, the active ingredient in the spice turmeric, is a natural anti-inflammatory that has been shown to ease muscle soreness after a tough workout, stop a headache in its tracks, support weight-loss goals, and improve your digestion. Seriously, is there anything this spiced drink can’t remedy?

This Is the Next Best Thing to Having Your Mom Take Care of You When a Cold Hits

Having a Thai immigrant mother made my childhood a little different than most of my friends’. In my home, the rice cooker was on 24/7, wearing shoes inside was a huge offense punishable by grounding, and if I was sick, my mom always turned to her expansive cabinet of mystery herbs. When I was younger, my American-born dad would look at her cautiously as she mixed up her treatments. “Why can’t we just give her some Tylenol?” he would insist.

Back then, I hated my mother’s herbal concoctions; most were bitter and came along with too much coddling and detailed explanations of each herb she used. As an adult, I crave the comfort of her blends and all the healing powers that seem to come from them ¡ª?none more so than her fresh ginger-lemongrass tea. It’s a surefire way to clear up congestion or a sore throat, ease aches and pains, and soothe an upset tummy. It also brings along with it the gentle and persistent love that only a mother can provide.
