034 | Ayurved-ish | with Anjali Bhargava
I’m always so excited when I get to meet new friends. Liza Killian, who was on the show a few weeks ago (episode #26, in case you missed it), told me about Anjali Bhargava when we were getting coffee in LA. She kept going on and on about the best turmeric mix she’s ever had in her life, and how sweet the creator of the company is.
I did my stalking, bought some products, and lo and behold, Liza was so right.
Bija Bhar’s Resilience Turmeric Elixir is so carefully sourced. It’s made from Hawaiian turmeric that is never boiled, and it’s blended with ginger, whole lemon, lemon peel, maple sugar, and black pepper - so it’s highly absorbable in your body. I love throwing it into hot water, and then into the blender, so it’s all frothy and delicious. It’s the perfect way to start the morning - or for that afternoon pick-me-up.
Turmeric, in case you didn’t know, is highly anti-inflammatory, and a huge staple in my diet for internal healing. Anjali is such a beautiful soul, building this brand from the ground up, making so much of this by herself in her Brooklyn kitchen - and she does it with so much love. There’s an Indian and Ayurvedic influence as well, which I absolutely love.
