I love anti inflammatory diet recipes! This is a recipe that is not only good for you but it seriously tastes delicious! And lets be honest, turmeric is not the best tasting substance on the planet. So this is a recipe for turmeric juice that includes a few added favourites including ginger and lemon.
As you may or may not know turmeric is a wonderful elixir for Alzheimer’s so I look forward to writing many more posts for you to read and for you to have an amazing memory to read them when you are very very old haha! And of course anti inflammatory diet recipes are a must for arthritis also.
Benefits of Turmeric
No anti inflammatory diet recipes would be complete without turmeric. Now turmeric is a very powerful anti inflammatory, in fact it is a real anti inflammatory elixir! But you know what the really great thing is? It doesn’t have the toxic side effects that medication, in the form of pills, produced by the greedy Big Pharmaceuticals has. And I think you know my thoughts on the BP!
If you don’t then check out this article – Healing Prostate Cancer naturally. I take turmeric in a juice almost every time I finish a run and it makes my knees feel so much better and also my back. It is a totally natural support to the body and helps with arthritis. It’s anti cancer properties are well documented. It actually inhibits the growth of the cancer cell.
What is Curcumin?
There are a heap more healing properties but I will cover those in future posts. I have been using turmeric for more than 4 years now and my body has never felt better. The active ingredient is cucumin but is only about 3% of the root plant. Cucumin is not easily absorbed into the blood stream so its important when you are making a juice or anything else with curcumin and turmeric to add a spoonful of coconut oil and a pinch of black pepper (it contains piperine) to the recipe as it helps absorb the turmeric and curcumin.

Ok I know, you want a recipe for turmeric juice! I hear you. But before we start I just want to explain the difference between a juice and a smoothie. So many people get confused here. They think a juice is putting all the ingredients in a blender and turning the blender on and letting it do it’s thing. Wrong! That is a smoothie. To make a juice you need preferably a cold pressed juicer.
A cold pressed juicer extracts only the juice from the fruit or vegetable and discards the pulp. So you are only drinking the actual juice. A smoothie is where you put things like a banana, avocado, mango and some turmeric powder or root into a blender and mix it all together. Delicious but not a juice. I hope that makes it clear. There are lots of so called experts out there who don’t know the difference!
Best Anti Inflammatory Diet Recipes – A Recipe for Turmeric Juice
4 inch piece fresh turmeric root (or two teaspoons organic dried turmeric powder)
3 inch piece of fresh ginger. You should be able to find fresh ginger root in most countries.
2 lemons, unpeeled if they are organic, peeled if they are not. (You can wash them in Apple Cider Vinegar if not organic as it will wash off the chemical residue)
2 Apples. Let’s not get too technical but I do prefer Granny Smith green apples but it doesn’t matter.
2 pinches of black pepper. (the pepper helps absorb the turmeric) and a spoonful of coconut oil.
Use a juicer (not a blender!) to Juice the ingredients. I use an Oscar Neo DA 1000 juicer and it does a great job! Add the pepper and stir well to combine. This can be stored in the fridge for no longer than 48 hours. Drink immediately for best results. This is a recipe for turmeric juice that really will heal you!
QUICK NOTE: Anti inflammatory diet recipes using turmeric need this! For a recipe for turmeric juice – Don’t forget the black pepper and coconut oil (or extra virgin olive oil) for best results. Do your best to use all organic produce. If you don’t have organic then invest in some Apple Cider Vinegar and wash your produce with it.
Have this for breakfast and I guarantee you will feel pumped up all day! It is the most amazing heart starter you can have. If you need some extra energy for the day add a beetroot to the mix. Olympic athletes are now using beetroot juice before running for extra energy and stamina. More on beetroots in a later post.
