Vegetables & Turmeric Broth

Nothing could be easier than making this homemade vegetable broth. Ideal for warming up this season, and it’s much healthier than ready-made broths. This broth is perfect for preparing before the end of year festivities and detoxifying after them! It is also a way to limit waste since you can use any leftover food ingredients. I like to use the veggies that are lying around as well as turmeric for its pretty color and health benefits.

In addition to various vitamins and minerals, turmeric has many other active substances, the best known of which are curcumin and curcuminoids. These are the reason of the strong color of turmeric, but also many of its benefits:

  • Antioxidant: The active ingredients in turmeric help the body to detoxify. They eliminate free radicals present in excess in our body and thus limit the aging of cells.
  • Anti-inflammatory: Turmeric is known for its effectiveness against chronic and intestinal inflammation. In India and China, it has been used for thousands of years to prevent and relieve inflammatory pain.
