Making turmeric a part of daily cooking can be intimidating to some, but the only intimidating part should be the risk of the intense yellow spice ending up on your white shirt.

Turmeric is surprisingly easy to use in every day dishes, has a myriad of health benefits, and has the magic of turning a simple, routine dish, into something you are excited to eat.

Let’s take an everyday egg dish – omelettes, scramble eggs, deviled eggs, egg salad – and sprinkle a pinch of yellow turmeric powder into it. Instantly the dish is brightened and gives new meaning to “sunny-side up”!

I love egg salad, and recently I began mixing turmeric into the mayo (or plain yogurt) to dye the dish a yellowish-orange color, as well as add a subtle, warm peppery taste to the eggs. When I feel like adding more depth and heat, I sprinkle some cayenne, or for a more complex taste, a dash of curry powder. Regardless of the variation, you get a flavorful, yellow twist to an egg sandwich.

As I always say, Good looking food matters. Appetizing food can change your mood for the better, wake you up from afternoon sluggishness, and even help aid digestion.

And if you can gain the health benefits of turmeric too, well, that will brighten anyone’s day:)
