The Golden paste is a turmeric-based paste that taken orally provides health benefits to humans as well as animals (dogs and horses). Turmeric, known for is anti-inflammatory properties and used medicinally for over 4,000 years, is excellent for arthritis, skin health, digestion, immune system, and even cancer. Recent studies have confirmed that it may be as effective as 14 different prescription drugs – without the adverse side effects.
Taking it daily in this paste is designed to improve absorption, an easy way to tap into its incredible healing benefits.
How to make Golden Paste:
½ cup turmeric powder
1 cup spring water (+ ½ extra if necessary)
1.5 tsp ground black pepper
5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
Mix water (1 cup) with turmeric powder in a pan and slowly heat it up and stir for 6-10 minutes until you get a thick paste (add the additional ½ cup water if it is too thick).
Add black pepper and oil and continue stirring until all the ingredients are fully mixed in together.
Allow the paste to cool. Store in the refrigerator in a jar for up to 1-2 weeks.
This recipe was developed by Doug English, a veterinarian who has utilized the ancient healing spice in all manner of animals ranging from dogs to cats to the most exotic types like alpacas and even crocodiles.
Why add Black Pepper? It is beneficial to take black pepper with turmeric because it helps the body absorb turmeric.
A 1992 report in Clinical Pharmacokinetics on black pepper explained why some studies did not show the same benefits of turmeric as the others did. The human body has a tough time utilizing curcumin effectively. However just a small amount of black pepper boosted bioavailability of curcumin by up to 2000%, the study shows.
How to Use Golden Paste: A lot of people incorporate the golden paste into their diet or daily routine, instead of taking it once in a while like a “medication.” The paste can be taken as is in small amount (1/4 tsp) 2 to 3 times a day, or mixed with honey for a better taste.
It also can be added to different dishes: salads, smoothies, curries, rice or soup. Experiment with what tastes better for you.
Recommended Turmeric Dosage:
I try to think in terms of brunch rather than breakfast.
Cucumber slices with smoked salmon and avocado.
Plantain apple pancakes as mentioned above.
Green smoothies with gelatin/collagen and bee pollen. (Neither is a complete protein on its own, but together, they are great).
“Pudding jars” like this one https://salixisme.com/2014/01/20/berry-gelatin-pudding/
Coconut milk AIP “yogurt” with this granola. I omit the Carob powder and add cinnamon/dried apple or freeze dried mixed berries or dried pumpkin powder and ginger etc. http://www.joannafrankham.com/totally-awesome-jaffa-tigernut-granola-aippaleo/
Sweet potato hash browns with compliant sausage or bacon. Can add carrots and onions. Or prosciutto wrapped asparagus.
He won’t know it’s paleo AIP banana bread. There are a few AIP zucchini breads and also carrot raisin. I also like to riff on the banana bread and add a cup or so of fresh cranberries, a dash of OJ and a tablespoon of beetvpowder (dried beets ground up). Or a cup of rhubarb and a tablespoon of beet powder.
AIP crackers with AIP liverwurst, pate, or other spreadable meat. Sides of fruit, dried fruit, celery, pickled veg, sauerkraut, etc
A variety of flatbreads (people like the healing kitchen pizza crust/flatbread a lot) can be made breakfasty. Think butternut, sage, sausage. Or fig, prosciutto, arugula, butternut and balsamic reduction etc.
AIP biscuits with AIP creamed (or sautéed) spinach and smoked white fish salad – recipe at bottom. http://heatherhollandaise.com/2016/06/paleo-biscuits-aip-friendly.html
Or use the above biscuits to make biscuits and gravy using the paleo mom’s AIP cauliflower gravy and add homemade sage breakfast sausage
See my other post about chicken and waffles
AIP flatbread with olive tapenade from a squirrel in the kitchen and pickled artichokes and compliant smoked ham (prosciutto, schenken, etc). Or pan fried anchovies. Tapenade recipe below

1/3 cup pitted Kalamata black olives
1/3 cup capers
1 TSP fine sea salt
Purée until completely smooth

Or the one from he won’t know it is paleo.
Chicken and waffles!
Make AIP fried chicken for dinner one night and serve the leftovers with AIP waffles, wilted spinach and a drizzle of honey. OR serve with the fried livers, gizzards and hearts.

Se uită în sus, arată şi cu degetul în sus şi spune: “Uite!” Ne oprim si noi curiosi si ne uitam in sus, unde arata copilul. Ma chiorasc si nu vad nimic.
Eu: ce e acolo, mami?
Eu: pai de ce te-ai oprit?
D: m-am uitat si nu am vazut nicio boaba. Si apoi am zis: tati, uite! Nu e nimic
