Clean Eating Turmeric Rice

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.

    Curcumin is the yellow orange pigment determined in turmeric. an amazing range of studies have proven that that is the main anti-inflammatory agent determined in this spice. As a depend of fact, the anti inflammatory nature of curcumin, blended with curcumin’s antioxidant and most cancers-preventing characteristics, is really extra special for weight loss and other diets.

    This Rapid Tone Diet Review is about a unique weight loss pill that has the weight loss community buzzing lately. This is because while most weight loss supplements and fat burners contain Garcinia Cambogia, Forskolin, or Ginseng, Rapid Tone Diet is made from all three.

    Of course, while there are three active ingredients that help provide you with the weight loss benefits, the amount of each component in the pills is reduced. The manufacturers claim that this weight loss aid will provide a more diverse fat burning result and will be able to help a wider range of people compared to a pill with just one active ingredient.
