Ever wonder what a food blogger does behind the scenes?  Here is a tiny look at my day.  Hint, it involves lots of coffee cups.

This is an overhead view of my workspace.  What is missing from the picture below?  Notice anything on the white plate?  EXACTLY!

That’s right it’s empty!!!  I can’t do anything in the morning without a cup of coffee or tea.  I need caffeine and this is the fastest way to get it into my body that doesn’t include an IV.  

Depending on the morning and what I have to accomplish that day, the levels of caffeine that I require varies.  I gave up sugar in my coffee and tea a few years ago so mine beverages are usually strong and certainly not sweet.

After becoming friends with quite a few Indian food bloggers, I recently started drinking Golden Milk at night.

What is Golden Milk?

Golden milk is a mixture of warm milk (I use coconut), turmeric, and other spices.  The turmeric is the key and is also what gives the milk it’s golden color.  Turmeric has been shown to have the following properties because of its curcumin content.

  • fights inflammation
  • acts as an antioxidant
  • detoxifies the liver
  • helpful in relieving arthritis symptoms
  • boosts brain function
  • possibly helpful for fighting diabetes and cancer by lowering your blood sugar
  • eases your digestive system
  • relieves night-time coughing

(This should not be used or substituted for actual medical advice.  I am not a Dr just a food blogger! Please consult your physician for actual medical advice)

The golden milk is prepared by simmering milk and spices and then honey is added to it at the end.  I have found that the golden milk helps me get to sleep faster, which is a good thing as I typically have a lot to do the next day! 

Because I enjoy the flavors of the golden milk, I am curious to try it with my morning coffee and see how it helps me get through the day.

Why do I need a Golden Milk Turmeric Latte?

As a food blogger, I wear many hats.  I am a recipe developer, food stylist, food photographer, writer, and social media manager.  That is a lot of hats to add to my existing mom and wife hats, so I have learned that organization is the key to success.

Having many to-do lists for each of the projects that I am currently working on, clipboards with ideas for future projects, and an editorial calendar on my computer for my blog means lots of balls to juggle at one time. 

My Editorial calendar juggles all my posts and social media messages. That is a lot to look at so it’s no wonder I need a golden milk turmeric latte!

Not to mention the three, yes three, planners that I have. One for the kids and husband that contains eye appointments and practices along with blocks of time for my “office hours.”  

I have one that is my blog recipe calendar so I can jot things down, like ideas for recipes and social media messages I might think up, that I carry too.  

You never know when you will get inspired and need to take notes.  If I tried to remember everything, I would remember nothing. Working a part-time job outside of blogging and mommy-ing also requires some juggling so I make sure that I add those days in too.

My third planner is a generic calendar that I keep on hand in case I forget the other two!  I always have to have a backup.  I keep this tiny one in my purse for when I leave one or both of the other two in the car or on the dining room table.  

Which is currently my workspace because Brooks took the office desk. The upside is that I feel more creative at the table where I also eat meals.

You can definitely see why I need a golden milk turmeric latte but what about you?  How do you start your day?

The Golden Milk Latte helps me get my day started while feeling right at home which is where I work and feel most creative.  Will you enjoy your Golden Milk Latte in the morning or evening?  Tag me on social media and show me with #GoldenMilkLatte and #TakeTwoTapas

This would be great with real organic coffee, the NESCAFE is pretty Inflammatory, so very processed, it kinda defeats the purpose of anti-inflammatory properties in the Golden Milk.

Please feel free to use your own creamer in it. It's just a guideline:)

Delicious. The only addition I made was a couple of twists of black pepper. Pepper really helps with the absorption of the turmeric. Thanks for the inspiration!
