I've been adding turmeric to as many meals as I can. I don't mind the taste, but I wouldn't say I love it, and in many cases I think the meal would taste better without it. So I've been looking for better ways to get more turmeric. I bought some turmeric root for the first time last week and tried just eating a few grams of it raw. When I looked in the mirror, my teeth were hilariously and horrifically orange. I think I may have permanently stained my toothbrush yellow. The last couple of days I've been trying something different. I've been cutting the turmeric root into small cubes, smaller than a normal pill, and swallowing those cubes whole. I'm not sure if that is a good idea or a bad idea. On the one hand, I worry about choking since the cubes are irregular and not as pill-shaped as a pill. I could also see myself lazily leaving a cube a little too big. I'm also not sure if all those cubes will be digested in the same way as eating the root normally or in dried and powdered form. But, on the other hand, maybe it would be really good to do this because it means the turmeric would survive through more of the digestive system? After this batch of roots are gone, I'm going to consider other options, including filling my own empty capsules with dried turmeric like this guy is doing. I'm not interested in taking a curcumin supplement, this would be the same dried and powdered turmeric you would add to food, just put into a pill and taken with food. I'm still going to add turmeric to food when it makes sense, I'd just like to eat more of it without always having to have everything taste like it.
