Turmeric can be incorporated into your diet in so many ways. You can add it to hot and cold beverages, sprinkle some on cooked food, cook stews with it, add colour to meals and so on. Do be careful when handling turmeric because it can easily stain most things it comes into contact with.

To give your body a shot of nutrients, here is one of four immune-boosting turmeric shot recipes from shared on auntynimu.com. Simply blend together a teaspoon of turmeric, a thumb of ginger, juice of one lemon and juice of one orange. Strain the mixture and quickly throw back the shot to avoid slowly sipping the highly concentrated concoction.
