As you might have guessed, we're not just big fans of turmeric but all spices which is why we'll use any excuse to incorporate our own chai masala mix!
Turmeric loves fats so this is a great way of getting some healthy fats into your diet too and the perfect pick-me-up when you're in need of a quick energy boost without the refined sugars!
In Ayurveda, meals should be balanced with the 6 tastes these being sweet, sour, salty, pungent, astringent, bitter. And in fact, invariably meals actually begin with a little sweet it gets the mouth producing saliva with all the necessary enzymes to begin the process of digestion and it actually helps to kerb your sweet cravings after a meal. These little energy balls are just enough sweet with a hint of salty and perfect before your meal.
