    Maple Turmeric Tonic

    This sunny tonic is sure to brighten your day. One of the elements that gives this drink its sunny hue is turmeric. While it is well understood that curcumin, a compound in turmeric, has significant anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, unfortunately, it is poorly absorbed into our bloodstreams. To increase absorption, it is recommended to consume piperine, a substance commonly found in black pepper.

    Tip

    Instead of carrot, grate a small red beet into your tonic for a pretty-in-pink sipping experience.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
