Ahhh Turmeric.... how I love thee!
You may think that you have not had Turmeric before, but if you have ever had a curry you have likely had Turmeric. Turmeric is what gives a curry its rich yellow colour! It is more than just a colour enhancer though. It has vast health benefits as well.

Garlic

 

As the nights get a little longer, the sun takes it time to rise in the mornings. The warm dry breeze gives way to the damp cold air that lingers a little longer until winter arrives. In the winter months Garlic thrives. It’s antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties become more powerful in perfect timing to help fight colds and the flu. Its main active component is Allicin which is released once the cloves are chopped or crushed.
