Turmeric: A seriously powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant to write home about.
Eggs: Arguably nature’s most perfect food.
So given that, what if you could introduce the two of them under the most delicious of circumstances? That’s what we’ve done. I’d like you to meet them both, in our new breakfast powerhouse dish. Eat it once or twice a week, and then get ready for your physical health to change. Read on.
I’ve talked before about the many huge health benefits of turmeric, a member of the ginger family that’s native to southwest India. (It’s the spice that gives curry its color.) But it may be even more nutritious than most think; recent studies show it has major benefits for your body and brain. In fact, it may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.
Why? It contains bioactive compounds called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin–a major anti-inflammatory and strong anti-oxidant. It’s believed that low-level inflammation plays a big role in almost every chronic Western disease (including heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s, and various degenerative conditions). Curcumin targets multiple steps in the inflammatory pathway at the molecular level… and matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs.
And what about eggs? They’re loaded with a ton of nutrients such as vitamins A and B, phosphorus, and selenium. They also contain Vitamins D, E, K, plus calcium, and zinc. Moreover, they contain Choline. That’s the important nutrient that most people don’t get enough of, which is used to build cell membranes and helps to signal molecules in the brain.
Then there are the proteins: Eggs are hugely rich in them, and they’re the main building blocks of the human body… used to make all sorts of tissues and molecules that serve both structural and functional purposes. Studies show that currently recommended amounts of eggs may be too low.
So what does all of the above mean? Simple: Eat more turmeric! Eat more eggs!
Here’s a fantastic way to do so, and to start each day both deliciously and nutritiously: At our new Back Bay locale: We now offer a two-eggs breakfast with a new superfood dressing of turmeric, Dijon mustard, and veganaise. It’s a supercharge for your day–and most importantly, for you.
