Turmeric

Turmeric

My first introduction to turmeric was when someone one told me “that stuff” can be used to make yellow rice. I was all excited to make yellow rice until i stained my white counter tops with it!

At any rate I learned how to make yellow rice that day. In addition, turmeric is a great food coloring.

The more I started researching and listening to natural health enthusiast, the more I became excited about turmeric. Of course it isn’t new after all. People have been using turmeric for centuries. So why are there still many people who don’t use it?

Natural living is all about being in the know.

Turmeric has been used by people in South Asia for thousands of years. Turmeric has been viewed as sacred, used for medicinal purposes, and part of the process used to dye their clothing.

There are various ways that you can use turmeric, however, I am going to share 12 ways that you can use turmeric as part of your natural living tool kit for your child with food allergies.

12 Ways To Use Turmeric

1. Yellow Rice
2. Main ingredient in Curry Recipes
3. Turmeric can be purchased as a supplement
4. Teeth Whitener….what? We are thinking the same thing.
5. Liquid Gold-a healthy tea, more like Chai
6. Acne/Eczema Soothing Paste
7. Sinus Relief…we personally sprinkle it in warm lemon water when the kids are ‘stuffy’
8. Beauty Mask...this is more to pamper you.
9. Memory Booster
10. Natural Laxative
11. Muscle Relaxing rub…keep in mind of the temporary skin discoloration ?
12. Tie Dye T-Shirts
So what do you think? Do you think Turmeric is worth adding to your tool kit?

How Using Thyme Isn’t A Waste of Time

 

How Using Thyme Isn't A Waste of Time

Know your body. Whatever you eat, drink, and put on your body, you need to know what works and what doesn’t. You need to learn what works for your child's body.

Are you that mom that gives your child Benadryl with the sign of a little sniffle? Or maybe if their throat feels a little scratchy,  you get out the throat spray.

I am not fussing at you, if that works fine, however, can you consider another way?

Have you considered your child may not be coming down with ‘something’ he/she may have a food allergy?

According to Food Allergy & Education (FARE), researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies.

Sometimes it can take hours or days before their body shows a reaction to something. So what should you do?

  • The body needs 24 hr support.
  • What are you doing, or taking to give your child's body what it needs?
  • Do you know what it needs?

Have you tried using herbal remedies?

Herbals, essential oils, smoothies, lemon water, and other natural methods can help keep your child's body above the wellness line. We are going to dive into a lot of these in upcoming posts.

Education is key but it means nothing until you apply and share it with others.

We keep a lot of thyme around the house to help support our immune system. You can make a thyme tea or ‘cough syrup’ and just keep the excess in the frig.

We’ve used this recipe for a few years and even some of my extended family uses it as their ‘go to’.

Thyme Tea / ‘Cough Syrup’

2 cups of water
1 cup of thyme
1/2 to 1 cup of honey
lemon juice/oil optional
peppermint oil optional

Directions:

-Bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
-Pour in 1 cup of thyme, turn off the stove, and cover.
-Let stand until cool.
-Strain and pour into a jar.
-Add honey and shake well.
-Store in the refrigerator and use as needed.

5 Benefits From Eating Real Food

Everyone is always in a hurry.  So much so that many believe there is a must to have food prepared and cooked fast. Fast doesn't mean that it is healthy.

As a mom, you want to make sure your child is eating foods that are going to be beneficial for them. I know you won't always "get it right" or if there is such a thing. I know you are doing the best you can.

When shopping you want to look for foods that are as close to nature as possible.

I am going to share with you 5 Benefits From Eating Real Food.

These benefits are just a reminder to purchase foods that are a natural and wholesome options for your child with food allergies.

 

 

5 Benefits From Eating Real Food

  1. Easy To Read 'Food Label'
  2. Support Local Farmers
  3. Help Decrease Inflammation
  4. Increase Energy
  5. Mood Booster

1 .   Easy To Read 'Food Label'.  Most food that are real, found in nature, have labels that are easy to read and are located in the produce or meat section.

Now when you are deciding what types of  meats you want to buy, you want to make sure of course there is minimual processing. If there is a long list of ingredients that you don't understand, don't buy it.

If your child can tolerate grains, make sure that you research the ingredients because there could be hidden ingredients or foods processed in the same facility as some of the foods your child is allergic to.

With everything, be your child's best Advocate.

2.   Support Local Farmers. This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and support farmers in your area.

You have an opportunity to start building relationships with farmers and learn about their processes in providing food for the community.

3.   Help Decrease Inflammation. Your child already has digestive upsets and difficulty with nutrient absorption because of the food allergies,

I know you want to do your best to make sure your child is eating foods that bring more healing to the gut and less inflammation.

Whenever my children were going through a type of elimination diet, leafy greens were a big part of trying to decrease inflammation. The bitter greens were not a 'big hit' with them at first, but we found ways to make them taste better.

Communicating with your child that these types of foods will help them feel better, makes the transition a little easier.

4.   Increase Energy. Who doesn't need more energy. Science has proven that some foods can give you a temporary 'high' then bring your body crashing down.

There are other foods that can provide a little more sustaining energy throughout the day. If you homeschool like we do, you want to give them a great boost of veggies in the morning in the form of a smoothie or a breakfast stir-fry.

This will help keep them alert...at least until lunch time! Food Allergies can be a downer at times so mom, cling to those foods that give an extra boost.

5.   Mood Booster.  This is closely related to the benefit of Increase Energy. When you have energy you are in a better mood. When you are in a better mood you have more energy and you are less stressful.

Real wholesome foods can help boost your child's mood, especially when they are out with friends and maybe they can't have certain foods.

Easy Tips...

  • Make sure when packing snacks, the mood boosting foods look fun to eat...or they will feel even worse being around friends.
  • Rolling up meats to look like pinwheels and cutting fruit into shapes is always fun for children.

 

These are just a few Benefits from Eating Real Foods. Can you think of anymore?

Share this post with a friend and comment on other benefits that you have experienced from eating real foods.
