Naturally Golden: Turmeric-infused Goddess Dressing

I mentioned in last Sunday’s post, Natural Pain-Relieving Drink: Turmeric Milk, that I also use turmeric in salad dressing sometimes. I tried to figure out my recipe for you. It wasn’t easy because I rarely measure when I am concocting dressing. I usually just keep mixing ingredients together until it tastes good. So, you may need to do some of your own adjusting to taste.

Some notes before I give you the recipe. I use quite a bit of turmeric to get a greater heath benefit. You may want to use half or a quarter teaspoon. You can omit the turmeric and you will be left with my version of Goddess dressing. You can replace the oil with veggie broth or water for a lower fat version. (I am not sure how long it will keep with just water or broth.) You need the tahini though! It won’t taste right without the tahini. You can also replace the Bragg’s with tamari or nama shoyu. Of course, you can always add a little water to thin it out.

Golden Goddess Dressing

Half Cup of Olive Oil

Quarter Cup of Apple Cider Vinegar

Two Tablespoons of Tahini

1.5 Teaspoons of Honey

Half Teaspoon of Garlic Powder

Three Quarters of a Teaspoon of Turmeric

Half Teaspoon of Sriracha Hot Sauce

Half Teaspoon of Bragg Liquid Aminos

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Mix it all together and store in a jar with a tight lid. It should keep for about a week in the fridge but I finish it way faster than that! Hope you enjoy!


Blessings to all,



Natural Pain-Relieving Beverage: Turmeric Milk

A few months ago, I found out that my neck had been injured quite severely over the years. I will go into more detail on this in a future post but one of the things I found out is that I essentially have arthritis in my neck, as a result.

I knew that I wanted to find a more natural way of handling the pain, which at times could be quite severe. So, I started researching natural remedies and turmeric kept coming up again and again.

Turmeric is an Asian spice. You have probably had it in curry or commercially-produced yellow mustard. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory. Curcumin is the component in turmeric that is most often cited for blocking inflammation and having positive effects in treating arthritis. Turmeric has also shown promising results in treating and preventing cancer, as well as, Alzheimer’s.

I add turmeric into certain dishes and often include it in my salad dressing. One of the tastiest ways that I have discovered to take turmeric is to drink it in a warm beverage. It tastes a bit like chai tea but a little earthier

Turmeric Milk:

One Cup of Milk (I use almond milk)

One Heaping Teaspoon of Turmeric

One Teaspoon of Honey

A Generous Sprinkle of Cinnamon

A Pinch of Nutmeg

Put the cup of milk in a saucepan and heat on low. Add the other ingredients. Stir until the honey is dissolved. Do not boil it! Just gently warm it. It should be pleasantly warm, not hot. Put in your favorite mug and enjoy!

Will you try Turmeric Milk? Do you have a favorite natural and delicious drink to deal with a health ailment? Let me know in the comments section. I would love to hear from you.

Many blessings to All,
