Now an advocate of eating for health and wellness, Holli gives us a non-traditional look into personalized nutrition. The following excerpt is from chapter 1, “Your Nutritional Style.”

Turmeric, the spice that gives curry powder its yellow color, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger has both anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties. Together they make a potent healing combination. Try it when you’re down with a winter cold—the zingy flavor will help you feel better.

• 2 cups water
• 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
• 1/2 tsp turmeric
