Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Truffles

Turmeric is filled with all the best "anti's" our bodies need, especially in winter — anti-oxidant, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties — not to mention the happiness boosting properties of niacin, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and zinc!

When my house gets the sniffles, an immune boosting turmeric, honey, ginger concoction seems to clear things up fast. But for a more fun and fabulous way to add turmeric to your winter diet, try these Turmeric truffles!
