Consider it the evening version of a matcha latte—a comforting cup of spiced golden milk offers the same kind of antioxidant boost without the caffeine. Typically a golden latte consists of a blend of nondairy milk, turmeric powder, ginger, black pepper, coconut oil, and natural sweetener, all mixed to taste. But if you'd rather remove the guesswork, there are plenty of premade powder blends available on the market. (Just add warm milk.)
If a curry seems too involved, you can still reap the health benefits by dusting turmeric on some quick roasted vegetables. We like chopping up some root veggies (think potatoes, carrots, and beets), adding a teaspoon of turmeric, some coconut oil, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon. Mix it all on a lined baking sheet until the vegetables are evenly coated, and then roast them in the oven (at 400 degrees) for about 40 minutes or until the veggies are golden brown.
For a truly lazy approach, invest in a turmeric extract or concentrate. By simply adding a few drops to a glass of water, you'll get your daily dose of brain- and body-boosting antioxidants with minimal effort.
