Happy November! You’ve probably already noticed your local shopping mall making the transition from Fall decor to Christmas lights and tons of gift wrap. The holiday season is upon us!
It's no secret that we love to indulge as it gets colder. Drinks get warmer (and consequently sweeter too), meals get a little “heartier”, and seeking warmth becomes the central focus of our day. However, all this extra indulgence can wreak havoc on our skin. We know—you probably won’t be seeing as many people as the months get colder, but there can be some serious long-term damage done if you keep your guard down during the holiday season.
We've collected a few great turmeric-based recipes that will help keep your skin in check this time of year. Consuming turmeric is an amazing way to reducing inflammation in our bodies, increase circulation, and give your skin some loving from the inside out.
Cauliflower is a great fall and winter go-to, but it’s usually found in breakout-worthy dishes like creamy cauliflower cheese soups. Check out this quick, easy, and healthy recipe that serves as a wonderful side dish or as a great appetizer with your favourite dip.
Show off with some exotic cooking skills for a cozy dinner date when you just want to stay in. This dish incorporates Indian spices, with turmeric being the star ingredient.

You’ve probably seen turmeric golden milk all over Instagram. Let’s face it—could you resist taking a picture of a drink that beautiful? We can’t either. But let’s dig a little deeper under the surface to find out what’s so awesome about this drink. In addition to turmeric, there are a ton of other spices in this drink that work together to kick bacteria, fungus, and dirt’s butt so that your pores stay clean and fresh. Light up the fireplace, grab your favourite book, and have the coziest of nights without the worries that a cup of hot chocolate would give you!
With butternut squash being in season this time of year, this soup is the perfect classic cozy choice. It’s a very simple, easy and tasty soup that goes well with many things. Your family and friends won’t believe you’ve made this. That pinch of turmeric will give it some earthiness and enough antioxidants that you’ll confidently tackle dessert without worrying about your skin (stick to one helping though!).
Obviously every holiday dinner party has a salad right? This simple salad is much healthier than the preservative-laden, sugar-spiked dressing you’ll buy in a supermarket. It’s very simple, fresh, and incredibly delicious. Tahini is a very popular middle-eastern ingredient that is made from toasted sesame seeds.
We hope you try one of these awesome recipes out that we love! We’re looking forward to the holiday season and are wishing everyone all the happiness in the world.
