Turmeric Rice – White Rice with a Nutritious Punch!


Rice is a staple product in my wellness pantry, particularly, white rice (Jasmine version).  I keep it handy for some of my meals, particularly, turmeric rice.  This is truly one of the ways in which you can add flavour and flair to your rice dishes, which will not only take away from the monotony but add the needed nutritional punch. Try it nuh!

Ingredient Spotlight!

~ Paprika~

Paprika is a seasoning that is typically made from a variety of peppers such as sweet bell peppers, chilli and cayenne peppers. While the peppers may vary from product to product, most packages usually contain the red varieties of bell peppers which are high in vitamin A.

Paprika is also said to be great for wound healing, supports the digestive system, helps with sleep and contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

All in all, it is an excellent seasoning to have in your lineup of spices.

To good health!
