Turmeric and ginger oatmeal

It’s one of those months. Everywhere you go, you see people with puffy eyes and sore throats.

Ever since I changed my diet, about 5 years ago, I can count by one hand the amount of times I got sick.

It used to be a regular thing back when I was younger but not anymore.

However, last week, my man caught something at work. Nothing serious but enough to bring him a bit down.

That was the inspiration for this week’s post. Apart from golden milk and ginger tea, I also rely on this oatmeal to fight colds.

  • 1 tbsp turmeric with a pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1,5cm ginger (minced)

  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 250ml almond milk
  • 250ml water (or more milk)
  • lot’s of fruit (for topping)
  • 1 tbsp of ground flax (for topping)
