Weekly Meal Plan: Turmeric Detox
This past weekend I celebrated St. Paddy's Day in Chicago with some college friends, which was so much fun. But the older I get - those types of weekends really stick with me well into the next week. So on my train ride home yesterday, I started desperately pinteresting detox recipes.. and turmeric was popping up everywhere! As I started reading more into it, the actual list of benefits for this root go on & on, including anti-inflammatory, brain health, autoimmune, arthritic relief etc! So for this week I decided to spotlight turmeric recipes!
I found a variety of recipes from all different types of cuisine that incorporate turmeric (getting to have chorizo and tikka masala in the same week!) All meals are paleo & WHOLE30 approved, though the program does ask to avoid drinking your food. I recommend adding eggs and avocado to your shopping list and make egg scrambles for breakfast if you want to stay true to the program. Open the recipes below by clicking on the picture to check out what I found!

During my marathon training, I've found it basically critical to have a little bit of oats or an extra carb the morning of a big run (over 10 miles). I typically just make a bowl of 1/3 cup of oats, supplemented with a scoop of vegan protein powder, and add a banana and almond butter on top.
I always do all my shopping at Trader Joe's! I typically find that their packed goods are so much cheaper than other health food stores. I also got some turmeric ginger tea there that was awesome!

Apparently Trader Joes agrees with me ;)
