“As the nights draw in here is your chance to win the full range of Turmerlicious Turmeric latte blends –  a dairy and caffeine-free range of hot drinks made from coconut, a good daily dose of superfood turmeric and a delicate blend of aromatic spices.

Amazing as it is, turmeric is very hard for the body to absorb as it is a fat-soluble spice and needs pepper and heat to break it down (making many supplements ineffective).

Because of this founder Maggie Howell created the Turmerlicious range of turmeric lattes specifically to maximise the absorption of turmeric, so adding one cup to your daily routine is a really effective and delicious way to take turmeric every day.

 Available in four natural flavours – vanilla, ginger, choc and chilli choc.”

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine  – in fact, one of the Sanskrit translation for turmeric is “defender of diseases”. In more recent years it has been found to ease arthritis pain, aid the liver in detoxifying, boost blood circulation, heal and soothe the digestive tract, reduce the pain and fever associated with illness, and even help prevent ulcers due to the antiseptic properties.

It truly is a superfood and yet for most people, it has only ever been used as a flavouring or colouring in savoury dishes. However, more and more people have started adding turmeric to their daily diet from both a medicinal as well as preventative perspective. Amazing as it is though, turmeric is very hard for the body to absorb as it is a fat-soluble spice and needs pepper and heat to break it down (making many supplements ineffective).

A particularly easy and delicious way to take turmeric effectively is as a hot drink, based on the age-old “golden milk”. The popularity of turmeric lattes in trendy cafes is growing at a significant rate, however making it yourself can be time-consuming, tricky to get right in terms flavour – turmeric is a bitter, dry tasting spice and can stain everything in your kitchen a sunny yellow.

That is exactly what Mum of 5 Maggie Howell found when making turmeric lattes at home as she wanted to get a good daily dose of turmeric into her diet. So after a year of experimenting with different blends and spices, she came up with a range of four flavours that complemented turmeric and coconut perfectly. In addition she found a way to make them completely instant – a huge time saver in a busy household!

She launched Turmerlicious last year and now her range of turmeric latte blends are available across the UK in Holland & Barrett, over 500 independent health food stores and of course from Amazon

Turmerlicious ticks so many boxes as it is free from caffeine (apart from a small amount of caffeine in the chocolate versions), preservatives, artificial flavours, refined sugar, GMO products, nuts, eggs and gluten. It is also dairy free which make its suitable for vegans, those following a Paleo diet and anyone with a lactose intolerance.

And it is delicious! As one customer said “it is like a hug in a mug!” a really comforting hot drink which is a great healthy replacement for tea, coffee and hot chocolate, simply add 3 heaped teaspoons to a mug, pour in boiling water, stir well and enjoy!

Her is you chance to win 1 of 3 sets of mixed bundles (4x 200g packs of choco, vanilla, ginger and chilli choc) RRP £26

Afraid by Sharon McGovern

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

When I met author Sharon McGovern at her house in Grays, Essex recently I was warmly greeted by a sharp, kind, intelligent woman – a writer, wife, mother and philanthropist who has survived against the odds, and is living proof that we as human beings have the capacity to endure the deepest of pain and come out the other side.

Sharon’s story began when she was four years old, after her biological father had left home, and when her step father, Mick Garvey, moved in.

For the next 13 years, Sharon suffered unthinkable abuse and bullying, which she was forced to keep secret from her mother and young brother, for fear of their own demise at the hands of this terrifying man.

It was only years later and after a failed marriage, the birth of three beautiful children and meeting her real life partner was Sharon ready to confront him.

At the same time Sharon had a premonition.  ‘It was not a dream, it was different.  I saw a small cell, with a window high up, and a man with his back to me sitting on a hard chair.  Beside him stood four prison guards, all in uniform, and all with the same face, like clones.  I was standing in the doorway to the cell when suddenly the man turned and looked at me.  It was my step father.  I knew they were waiting to take him somewhere.  I also knew the place where he was imprisoned was not in this country, but was in France, Spain or Italy.’  Sharon eventually tracked him down in Spain, where he had been locked away for a serious criminal offence.

This was another frightening but incredibly brave chapter of Sharon’s life when she finally faced Mick Garvey in court in the UK after several years.  She saw his face go ashen as she walked into court, as he witnessed her resolve to finally get justice for herself and her family.  He was charged of seven accounts of rape and indecent assault, and sentenced – but eventually died in prison.

Many people over the years have asked Sharon if this finally laid ghosts to rest and brought some sort of solace and closure to her years of abuse.

‘Closure, I heard the word ‘closure’ many times in my life to bring Mick Garvey to justice, and afterwards it seemed to be on countless people’s lips:  ‘Now you have closure.’  But of course I didn’t.  It’s too easy, too glib, to think that because my abuser was behind bars, all the evils of my childhood would be wiped out.  There is no such thing as closure – there is never an end.  I will take my abuse to the grave with me; it’s with me every day, it’s what has made me who I am.  I have had to fight all my life to make sure it doesn’t take over, but I can never deny that it happened, or that it affected me’.

Sharon continues her work with rape and abuse victims and speaks publicly on how to help survivors of crime.

‘I try never to use the word ‘victim’ to refer to my situation.  ‘Victim’ would hand the victory to my abuser.  The word I use is ‘survivor’ because that’s what I am.  Mick Garvey saw me as his victim, he didn’t count on me being a survivor’.  Sharon McGovern, Afraid

The book is available from Amazon
