Whenever one of us gets sick, I turn up the nutritional dial and make sure our meals are filled with the vitamins and minerals that can help aid us in our recover.
My boys seem to be quite susceptible to coughs, everything always seems to go to their chests, keeping them up in the night (as well as the rest of us) and here we are, only a couple of weeks into a new school year and my youngest is already suffering.
My go to meal when my boys are under the weather is wild salmon, steamed broccoli and turmeric rice. I like to think that the anti inflammatory properties, and various vitamins and minerals will help to give their bodies a little boost whilst they fight of their illness.
I’m not sure exactly how much of a difference it makes but it definitely helps me feel better to be actively doing something that I believe could be beneficial. And even if it doesn’t make a difference, we always enjoy eating those meals.
It’s National Rice Week so what better time to share with you my Turmeric Rice recipe. This is such an easy way to give rice an added boost of flavour and nutritional value.
You can serve this rice with anything, but we especially love it with curry, chilli or some plain roasted chicken thighs and steamed green veggies.
