Turmeric + Holy Basil Mocha Frap

Dana Cutolo

I've recently came to the realization of how therapeutic self-care can be. I get this amazing joy from making healthy recipes - and coming up with new ideas of how to use food as medicine. 

In this recipe I'm using the combination of Holy Basil, "Tulsi" and Turmeric. Holy Basil is a renowned herb known for it's ability to regulate and decrease stress, and heal the mind + body. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Overall - this is a great combination to start your day with. Typically, if I'm having a really stressful week, I'll try to add holy basil and honey (i have a sweet tooth!) to my recipes to help me chill out.

.... and this week I definitely needed it! I had 4 wisdom teeth removed + a torn cornea in the same week - so my stress level has truly been at an all time high!

BUT - back to the recipe!!! - let's end this little rant with one of my favorite quotes (and a fitting one, too..)

 

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
