Spicing Up Your Eggs

                                          

I live on eggs.  I eat them almost every morning.  I don’t get tired of them because I eat them in so many different forms... scrambled, poached, soft boiled, or baked into a frittata.   Recently during my first trip to California, I was told about a spice that I had never heard about before.  Please understand that I do not claim to be very experienced with spices.  I have always used the basic dried ones in my dishes; yet, in the last few years I’ve gained knowledge and experience in cooking with fresh herbs and spices. What a difference they can make to the flavor of food.  I was excited to come home with a small bag of turmeric and give it a try.  

Turmeric is a yellow/orange spice, usually ground into powder.  My friend simply said, “Try it on your eggs.”  Well, I did and POW... it was great.  I can’t quite describe the flavor, but it is mild.  It adds just the right amount of savoriness without overwhelming your sleepy morning taste buds. I give a couple shakes into my scrambled eggs while they are cooking and it has become my favorite approach to making eggs.  Since I started using turmeric in my breakfast, I have learned that this spice has many great benefits. 

A Few Benefits of Turmeric:

1. It’s a natural liver detoxifier. 
2. It’s good for the brain and can possibly prevent or slow down Alzheimer’s.
3. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory. 
4. It can help in metabolizing fat and aid in weight loss. (Sweet!)
5. It can help with many skin issues, including psoriasis.  

So there you have it.  Adding a little turmeric to your morning eggs, or other foods, is not just a tasty way to spice up your typical morning, but you are doing something great for your body.  

I would love to hear from you about what other ways you have used this spice.  I have so much more to learn.
