Turmeric Roasted Cashews

If you’re anything like me when I’m binge-watching my favourite Netflix series, you’re probably snacking on a little somethin’ something’ (guacamole is a hands-down winner for me).

But if you tend to reach for junk food (like a big bag of chips)…I hate to be the bearer of bad news here…but those inflammatory foods can make your acne worse.

Enter, turmeric roasted cashews. A perfect snack or even salad topping!

Contrary to when you finish the entire bag of chips, you won’t feel guilty if you eat the whole bowl of these roasted cashews because the turmeric has a number of benefits for your skin.

One of the most important being anti-inflammatory properties because inflammation is at the core of acne.

Gut Health and Inflammation

Inflammatory foods like refined vegetable oils, sugar, and food intolerances (as well as stress, infections and lack of exercise) all lead to chronic inflammation.

How does that happen, though?

A big way is through your gut.

A diet full of inflammatory food causes something call intestinal permeability (aka leaky gut).

Basically, your gut is like a screen door. It allows nutrients to pass through and into the bloodstream. But crappy food makes bigger holes in the screen and allows bugs (aka undigested food and toxins) to start passing through.

We don’t want this to happen because it triggers body-wide (and chronic) inflammation to occur.

Ultimately, the best way to combat inflammation is through your diet.

Which is why gut health is the first pillar in The Clear Skin Solution. It’s crucial to address at the beginning of your skin-clearing journey through an anti-inflammatory diet.

Not only removing inflammatory foods, though, but including ones that reduce it, like the turmeric on these roasted cashews.

Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of Turmeric

Now let me tell you why this recipe needs to be on your anti-inflammatory menu…

There are an abundance of healthy components within turmeric, but the most popular is curcumin. 

This is an incredible antioxidant and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects. In fact, several studies have shown that curcumin is more beneficial at reducing inflammation and pain than pharmaceuticals. These anti-inflammatory properties can help with acne as they reduce redness, soothe breakouts and brighten the skin.

Research also shows that it can block NF-kB. This is a molecule that goes into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes connected to inflammation, and plays a role in many chronic diseases.

If you want more of this anti-inflammatory powerhouse, you can also try this brightening turmeric face mask, and while it’s sitting for 20 minutes, sip on this warming golden milk.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.
