Did you know that turmeric contains natural compounds which have been found to address the effects of Alzheimer's disease?
This muffin recipe contains turmeric, giving the muffins a sharp, earthy spice with a slight tang of ginger, giving the muffins a reminder of an Indian curry. The thing you will notice with turmeric, is the bright color to food, similar to American mustard yellow. It has a wonderful taste, and has the benefit of being anti-inflammatory. This is truly a health food that you will want to have often. Don't forget to impress your friends at work or in the gym with a delightful surprise.
