At the beginning of the New Year, many of us take time to pause and reflect, giving thought to the past year, reviewing our lives, and taking inventory of what we have accomplished. Often, from a place of judgment, we create “resolutions”, or goals for the year to come, which involve even more accomplishing, doing, and producing. I’m done with this!
This year, I decided to try something new. Instead of asking myself, “What do I want to do this year?“, I asked myself “How do I want to feel?“.  As I contemplate this question, a few words bubble to the surface. I want to feel vibrant and energized. I want to feel grounded to the earth and its cycles. I want to feel connected.
We are all different and we each resonate with feelings so individually. How do you want to feel this year?  After you come up with a few core feelings, think about ways to cultivate these feelings on a daily basis. What habits can you gently instill to promote more of what you want to feel?

For me, this means cooking and eating foods that are alive and full of nutrients- rather than ones that leave me feeling heavy and tired. Instead of saying, I’m not going to eating dairy or sugar, I gently nudge myself away from the mindset of “rules”, into the realm of feelings, remembering how wonderful it feels to feel vibrant, alive and energized.

Because cooking is a big part of my work and everyday life, I feel more grounded to the earth and its cycles when I prepare food that actually comes from the ground, when it’s grown in its true season. And yes, of course it is much harder in winter to always stick to this!

This is why I love this Turmeric Tonic juice so much! This seasonal juice recipe contains winter root vegetables and seasonal citrus, and one very special healing ingredient… fresh turmeric root! Perfect for cold winter days. It feels like liquid sunshine!
The research out there on the health benefits of turmeric is widespread and plentiful. Its healing properties include the ability to: destroy cancer cells, regulate insulin, relieve arthritis, prevent Alzheimer’s by aiding in the removal of plaque build-up in the brain, detox the liver, help the body break down fat, reduce cholesterol, and clarify the skin. For more info, read this and this.  Clearly, there is something to it.

But honestly, it wasn’t the facts or benefits that sold me on this fresh turmeric juice, it was how my body felt after I drank this. It felt amazing!
Turmeric has a strong flavor, that can overwhelm, so make sure to use it in moderation. Start off conservatively, adding more as your palate becomes accustomed to it. It’s deliciously addictive. I find myself adding more and more each time I make the juice, but trust me, start off with a tablespoon or less.  You can always add more. The addition of fresh turmeric gives the juice an exotic quality, taking me to faraway places in my imagination.
Happy New Year!

  1. pls excuse my ignorance, but how did you make this, did you put it in a blender and blitz it all? thank you

    1. You seep the the ingredients in boiling water, then strain. Using a french press is easiest.

      1. Thank you for the recipe. I cut the ingredients in half for my ninja juicer. Unlike my other juicer this one keeps the pulp. It turned out well

  2. Hi, just wanted to say thanks for this great post and let you know I mentioned you blog on mine with this posting where I did a micro modified version of it (https://healthyandraw.wordpress.com/2016/02/22/tumeric-tonic/) 🙂

  3. What do you mean by turmeric tonic? Can you use a red beet instead of yellow? We don’t have a lot of fresh farm markets in our area that carry a lot of ”different” things.

    1. Thanks Sharon! I call it a “tonic” because it’s healing, although, I can see how this may be confusing…is basically fresh juice with fresh turmeric root. 🙂 Red beets are just fine, the flavor won’t change a bit — the reason I chose golden beets for this is it allows the color of the turmeric to really shine through, where with a red beet will mask it. Simple as that!! I hope you give it a shot, it’s really good!!

  4. Could you make this in a whole fruits blender?I have a ninja, which I am in love with. I add ground tumeric to my morning smoothie but have been trying to make some detox mixies a few days a week.
    thanks, and I love theblog👌💙

    1. Thanks Amber! Im not sure…have never tried! If you do try it, please let me know what you think…Im very curious! Start off very sparingly with the fresh turmeric, too much can get bitter. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I just made it with 1/2 teaspoon and it was SO GOOD! I think I’ll add a little extra next time 😉 My 63 year old mom is trying turmeric for the very first time today too thanks to your recipe! Thank you!!

    2. I tried this today with 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric and it was SO GOOD! I think I’ll try adding a little more next time 😉 My 63 year old mom is trying turmeric for the very first time thanks to your recipe so THANK YOU!! 🙂

  5. If I can’t find fresh turmeric, can I stir in some ground turmeric after everything is juiced? If so, how much would you use? Thanks!

  6. Wow, this is the bomb! My husband, daughter and I loved it!!! Thank you for sharing and will for sure be making more recipes from your site. Found you on Pinterest:)

  7. You are AMAZING! I am so incredibly happy to find your blog and looking forward to seeing all of your new upcoming recipes for 2014! You have inspired me to cook more at home this year….

    If so, I was looking to use less dairy in my diet this year, yet I feel dairy (i.e. CHEESE) can be so flavorful and hearty. It also fills me up the way meat does… but lately it hasn’t been agreeing with me when I eat too much. I’ve always had a hard time flavoring food..I can make it look pretty, but it tends to fall bland. What would you say are essential seasonings/oils/whatever that I should have in my pantry to give my food great flavor (so I dont throw cheese on it!)? I live in the middle of the dessert now and your recipes have me missing the fresh ingredients I had access to in the Bay Area. The lack of unique produce left me uninspired to cook in 2013 but I plan to break out of the rut!

    I know that’s a long-winded message there, but you inspire me (did I already say that?!) Haha. Thanks again!

    1. Yay! Im so glad you are finding inspiration here. Thank you. Creating flavor without cheese can be challenging, but totally doable – by using other ingredients that are pungent or full of umami flavors. But truthfully, the simplest place to start is with salt. Often food that lacks salt, tastes bland. Salt makes the over flavors come out more. Then think acid ( citrus, vinegar). Then depth….like Soy, miso, caramelized onion, garlic, smoked salt, pungent flavors like anchovy,capers, fish sauce. And I love using fresh herbs in abundance. It really depends on the recipe. Feel to email me with specifics anytime. Happy New year!!

    1. You could try it but it might be difficult to blend up the carrots and beets unless you have a strong blender like a vita- mix. Let us know if it works…Thanks Terina.

  8. That’s a great attitude to have! I too have promised myself that I will actively do things to make myself feel better. I love this juice! Pinned to make ASAP!

  9. I love this! I’m amazed by the health benefits of turmeric, and I always feel so refreshed when I get it in my system. Beautiful, tasty beverage! Happy New Year!
