Well, Halloween is right around the corner and luckily falls on a Friday this year! We have Elsa and a Stormtrooper ready to go in our home. What are your kids dressing up as this year? To help celebrate Halloween, we received a very festive trio of goods from OrganicIndia.com with a creative twist on black and orange:
Turmeric - This orange spice supports inflammation, digestion joints and radiant skin. Available in capsule and powder form. "a natural spice that contains curcuminoids, which are phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant properties that fight the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. Fortified with curcuminoid extract and organic ginger, our organic Turmeric supports important blood and liver functions, healthy joints and overall well-being, which is ultimately reflected in a radiant, supple skin."
Chyawanprash - This 100% organic black herbal jam is packed with 36 traditional Indian herbs + vitamin C, aiding in digestion, metabolism, memory and skin complexion. Great on toast, bread or crackers, it can be added to smoothies, "or as a healthy snack just eaten right out of the jar with a spoon! Traditionally in India, it is stirred into a warm glass of milk. It is naturally sweet, using mineral rich gur (organic cane juice that has been slowly reduced to a thick syrup, somewhat like maple syrup) and organic honey, and has that authentic taste of the spices of India."; and
Tulsi Tea - Tulsi Tea blends come in 18 delicious flavors! "Tulsi, also called Holy Basil, is revered throughout India as a sacred herb infused with healing power and is considered to be the “Queen of Herbs.” Abundant in antioxidants, certified organic Tulsi Tea is not only great tasting; it offers stress relief, increased energy and a boost to your natural immune system."
My favorite product of the three is the delicious tea, although an herbal tea, that one would enjoy without anything added, I, being English, have to add sugar and milk and while most herbal teas would not take the addition of milk, this one took it well, it added a great taste and made it that much better. Caffeine Free, this tea would make a great night time treat and saved me earlier this week when I was not feeling very well! I want this tea to be in stock in my cupboard, always.
The Turmeric came in capsule form and I am not the best pill popper. Regardless, the powerful properties of these capsules could out weigh my dislike. We are quite fond of the spice itself and add it to our Chicken Curry's - I will attempt the capsules to reap the many benefits of this powerful spice.
The Chyawaprash jam is like nothing I have had before. It was much sweeter than I thought and the smell reminds me of something that I cannot place. Extremely good for you - I first tried it on toast and may try it on crackers next.
