Slipping and sliding on the foot deep snow I carry my props and drink to the outdoors. The minus twenty two degrees celsius cold air that I breathe in feels like a knife cutting through my chest. A polar vortex has blanketed the prairies as predicted by the weather man.
A pick-me-up for this bone chilling weather has to be this deeply nourishing, powerfully healing and warming drink.The ingredients for this comes from the 4000 year old Vedic culture in India. The science of Ayurveda prescribes turmeric ( Cucurmin ) for its antioxidant, anti inflammatory and mood elevating properties.
