How to Add Turmeric to Breakfast

4 Ways to Make Turmeric Part of a Protein-Packed Breakfast

Let's make mood-boosting, weight-loss-aiding, anti-inflammatory, debloating turmeric part of our morning routines without adding extra steps! In fact, it's such an easy spice to incorporate into the high-protein foods you're already making for breakfast. Studies show that eating protein in the morning can help you from feeling ravenous throughout the rest of the day, especially if you've just done a morning workout! This satiating macronutrient curbs cravings and keeps you feeling full, powering you through all your day's activities.

So with the satiating power of protein and the miracle spice that is turmeric, you're guaranteed to wake up on the right side of the bed with these can't-mess-up breakfast ideas. Each one takes less than five minutes to put together, and two of them can be made the night before!

Golden Milk Chia Pudding

Start with a basic chia pudding recipe, and simply add in a scoop of turmeric and black pepper or your favourite golden milk powder (I've been using the blend from Gaia Herbs that includes black pepper). It's seriously that easy. Stir, chill, and enjoy all the healthy benefits for breakfast.

Collagen Golden Milk Latte

We love a hot, steamy cup of creamy golden milk for breakfast — it's a nice break from coffee every now and then. Want to take yours to the next level with protein? Try adding a scoop of collagen supplement powder and stir it into the mixture while it's on the stovetop. I love Vital Proteins collagen peptides (the vanilla and coconut water flavour is perfect for this flavour profile!), but you could use any collagen supplement you like. The collagen melts really nicely into a hot liquid and doesn't alter the texture or flavour, and you'll be adding 18 grams (depending on which supplement you choose) to your breakfast drink!

Golden Milk Overnight Oats

Just like with the chia pudding, start with a simple overnight oats recipe, and stir in some turmeric and black pepper! This spicy addition to your staple breakfast oats will ease inflammation and bloating in addition to making your ordinary breakfast a little more fun and unique.

Golden Milk Protein Smoothie

Think about your favourite protein smoothie recipe: it's usually just a few ingredients, right? Maybe it's protein powder, a banana, ice, and some plant-based milk. Keep doing what you're doing, but add some turmeric and black pepper to the mix and maybe a little fat (turmeric's active compound, curcumin, is more easily absorbed into your body when it's paired with a fat!). Nut butter, coconut oil, or even a splash of coconut milk could do the trick. And voila — a frothy, icy cold breakfast treat that'll help with aches, pains, and inflammation, plus all that protein to keep you full!
