The past few runs I have been out on have been uneventful. Little bits of soreness as my legs acclimate back to running after nearly a whole winter off. Today though, a little over halfway through a 5-miler my left achilles was starting to hurt. I don’t think I pulled anything, but it’s certainly inflamed. Yes, I will see a doctor if it continues to hurt! In the meantime, I checked out what I can do with stuff I have in the cabinet as far as seeing about getting the inflammation to go down.
Knowing the benefits of turmeric I started working on a golden milk recipe. I saw a bunch of them including this one on Minimalist Baker and this one over at Wellness Mama. They seemed super easy, I just had to taste test em a bunch to get what I was looking for, I also didn’t want to make a big batch of it so this is a single use recipe.
It ended up tasting great, I may have to make more!
1 cup of almond milk
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp Bee Free Honee
pinch of black pepper
Heat all ingredients together. As it starts to warm, stir well. Do not let it get to a boil, you don’t really need it that hot but hot enough that the ingredients mix. Do that for about 3-5 minutes and serve immediately.
It’s not a miracle cure, but I will keep trying it daily and see what happens; I need to run hills tomorrow so maybe a teensy bit miracle cure??
