Turmeric

We are now officially in full swing of winter, yikes. I live in a very old house which is beautiful, although freezing cold.
To conserve energy I’m wearing a mimco rastafarian style hat around the house. You can store so much heat in the head which spirals down to the body. Now I know why my boyfriend wears a beanie all through winter! I’m also making raw hot chocolate with date molasses by the bucket load.
But today it’s all about turmeric, a few close people to me are down with the flu, not just any ordinary flu but a serious influenza that goes on for at least a fortnight. So I’m in my kitchen at lunch today chopping up fresh organic turmeric, garlic and ginger to make a super nutritional slow cooked asian hotpot, recipe will be up later in the week, hopefully by then the sun will be out so I can shoot in my kitchen which is all dark and gloomy from the rain.
