Turmeric Salad

They say turmeric is good for joint pain.  Anyone with experience on this subject?

I’ve been putting it in a lot of foods as I eat them.  It wasn’t too bad on this cottage cheese, but certainly isn’t a flavor I would seek out.  Lightly curried talcum powder is how I would describe it. 

It was good in bread as it gave it a nice color without any of the flavor.   The teff and sesame seeds helped!

    I lightly sprinkle it on scrambled eggs while cooking them, as well as in other foods such as pinto beans. I try to use a light hand – I think it looks like you have an awful lot of it on your cottage cheese. I like to get the flavor of it as I do in the eggs which often have a few other things mixed in – leftover veggies, bacon or sausage, etc. But I’m not quite ready for heavy doses of it. (Also, it stains and I worry about it staining my teeth and partial denture.) I take two capsules of tumeric each morning along with a probiotic, and I noticed quick relief from the pains after my gallbladder removal.

      We were just discussing the use of capsules. Do you think they are as good as the powder?

        I prefer them over the powder because I think I actually take more in with the( capsules. The amt of tumeric extract in a serving, 2 capsules. is 1000 mg. I buy Costco’s Nature’s Lab Tumeric CurcuminC3 with Bio-Perine (Black Pepper Extract). I like getting my regular dose every day and consider what I sprinkle on food to be supplementary because I don’t use it every single day. I take the tumeric & probiotic together and have noticed a 1000% difference! Can’t recommend it highly enough, although allow 6-8 wks to reach the full results.

    I use Tumeric everyday in my smoothie, when I don’t use my feet let me know before long of working and standing on cement floors at work.

    Turmeric does have anti-inflammatory characteristics. I try to use 1/4 teaspoon of the ground organic root, 3 times a day. I normally mix it with about a jigger of warm water. This is the daily amount recommended by Dr Oz’s father in law, also an MD.

    I have been buying the root and putting it through my garlic press along with ginger in my tea. I’ve been doing the ginger for years and just added the turmeric. I like it as a tea when bought as tea. It also is supposed to be good in milk. http://nutritionstripped.com/turmeric-milk/ and digests and is absorbed better with other foods. Also I think curry powder has turmeric in it and so that is good on eggs, veggies and the like. I agree that the powder is kind of weird and chalky.

  6. I totally agree of your description of the taste! It’s bearable in a curry spice mix, but I’m not a fan of it on it’s own.
    I also tried the fresh root, and came up with the same conclusions.

    As for treating joint pain with it, I’m not sure if a bit of it with food can make that much of a difference, while I read somewhere that high amounts of it can interfere with iron absorption… So I guess “in moderation” is the key here too. πŸ™‚

    Though turmeric is used in every dish in my kitchen, I have never used it in salad. Because I was afraid it may taste strong when sprinkled raw. Have to try it now.

    Yes, it is good for pain. It has a lot of good effects. Even someone gets hurt it is heated with limestone and painted against the hurt limb.
