We all encounter inflammation or inflammation producing activities in our life whether it’s from the environment, stress, or even exercising. Supporting your immune system isn’t just about food or magic pills and potions, it’s actually more about the context of your diet, movement, stress, sleep, etc. that really support our immune health. Turmeric is one spice of many that has interesting health benefits related to reducing inflammation.
MCT oil or any type of nut butter such as cashew or almond butter is the main ingredient that gives this latte a super creamy and frothy texture. In addition, fat is good for us! Fat helps our bodies absorb fat-soluble vitamins and antioxidants in our diet, keeps us full and satiated, and tastes delicious. Win, win, win!
