Cumin-Lime Turmeric Vinaigrette Recipe with Gaia Herbs TurmericBoost Restore

By Ashley Koff, R.D. Recipe by Amy Fischer, R.D.

Vegan, Paleo, dairy-free, detox, alkaline... and so goes the list of different labels people use to define their nutrition choices these days. As a dietitian, I don't dwell on what someone chooses not to eat; I focus on making sure what they do eat is well-balanced and nutritious.

Regardless of your diet plan, modern life presents challenges for our bodies that our nutrition can support. Thankfully, the body has natural, healthy inflammatory responses in place.* These are a signal, like the whistle of a tea kettle, to remind us when we need to work on getting back to a state of balance.

Real, whole foods are packed with nutrients to promote health and wellness.* Turmeric is a great addition to any nutrition plan, and, what's more, it's delicious-especially when you use TurmericBoost like we did in this Cumin-Lime Turmeric Vinaigrette.

You’re committed to making smart nutrition choices, so choose a dressing that tastes great and gives you a boost. Smoky cumin and tangy lime are a perfect fit with TurmericBoost Restore.
