So in Montana, NW Montana there’s snow on the ground. We thought it was spring! It’s not spring. It’s still winter here
Im gonna share a recipe for golden milk
I love this recipe because it’s super nourishing
Maybe when you were a kid your mom made you a glass of warm milk. At the time my family didn’t know anything about Auryveda or anything. She’d just put a mug of milk in the microwave.
- raw cows milk
- local environment
- something that is local
- not as highly processed
- or a milk you digest well.
heavy nourishing quality
- hemp milk
- almond milk
- There’s a heavy tradition which is why it can help with sleep
in the Ayurvedic tradition
spices make it the color gold but also the spices help you digest the milk
how to make it
what it’s good for
hungry right before we go to bed
golden milk is a good option
heat the milk on the stove
Especially now I’ll wait till the milk is cooked and drain the spices
I’ll add a bit of raw honey
when it’s cool enough to drink
especially if its local honey
Will help with springtime allergies
types of flowers that are pollinated
warming quality of the golden milk
find it on my website groundedhere.com/tea
cozy up with some golden milk and think about
what seeds your gonna start next
or planning for the coming year
All the spices together help aid in digestion
If you don’t like one of those spices leave it out
You want to enjoy this experience
It should be sweet and nourishing

will be anti gas for you which will help you
that tea can also help to mitigate hunger or the felling the hunger
can help to regulate your metabolism
I really love to drink the ccf tea
if I find myself trying to procrastinate
soothe that mental hunger
searching for something to snack on
tea can help me to find that out
sometimes I just need that to settle my stomach down
Well I never have that problem. haha jokZ. I am always like, I eat it doesn’t have anything to do with hunger… I always bit my fingernails… I like to eat a lot of popcorn because i feel like at least that is not a lot of calories if I’m eating it’s healthier then potato chips… but tea?
We should talk about hunger sometimes. There’s a lot to be said about how to shift that. So we are eating when we’re hungry and that can aid in our digestion.
How do you brew that? Take cumin, coriander and fennel? What kind of fenneL
drink that tea
I have a
You can just use a mortar and pestal grind them slightly not to a pulp.
Just cracking the seed open can give you it’s essence and more of that quality in the tea
I use about a teaspoon or two of the spices combined per cup.
A little less less cumin for coriander
One part cumin
two parts fennel
- boil the water with the spices
- steep for 5 min
- strain out the spices
- sip your tea
- steep up to ten minutes
I like to put it in a thermos to sip throughout the day.
I find I have more time to drink things then eat things. At lunch I had to eat, and print things for parents. Trying to drink and have a sandwich, I can drink while the kids are in the classroom but not really eat.
Let me know how it goes next week. If it calms your digestive system. If we start to snack on tea better then popcorn we can start to regulate our digestive metabolism. Then we end up burning fat if we have excess fat on our bodies and maintain our energy better. So there are a lot of benefits!
I hope the milk helps sleep tonight.
I had no idea you had all this knowledge about nutrition when I said do you want to talk about cooking.
