Turmeric is one of the most expensive spices that help prevent inflammation and diseases. I know the bright orange hue seems unappealing, but it signals how nutritious this food is in antioxidants. This spice has the amazing ability to calm the nervous system, soothe skin diseases including psoriasis, prevent PMS, and even fight cancer because of curcumin, an active ingredient that gives it the orange hue and works as anti-inflammatory in the body. Try adding a pinch or even two to your fish or egg dishes, rice dishes, chili dishes and chicken. Turmeric also pairs well with stir-fry veggies, tofu and quinoa.
