Your Golden Paste Starter kit contains a generous amount of cold-pressed organic coconut oil, organic turmeric powder,
and freshly ground black pepper, enough to make one batch of the Golden Paste. You provide a glass jar in which to store the paste. If you're happy with the results of using the paste (and we're sure you will be), you can order one of the six-batch kits, or purchase the ingredients (turmeric, pepper and coconut oil) separately. You can also find coconut oil in
most grocery stores, though we think the organic unrefined coconut oil in our kits is of superior quality.
All kits come with a fully illustrated color instruction sheet with the golden paste recipe and directions for use.
Add your golden paste to any savory foods, such as pasta and rice dishes, scrambled eggs, potato and egg salads and others. You may also like it in fruit or vegetable smoothies, coffee, tea, cocoa or masala chai.
Most dogs and cats will accept golden paste readily as long as you start off with very small amounts. Mix into their kibble and/or wet food, add to yogurt, tuna fish or other treats, or try this recipe from the Facebook Turmeric User Group (this is great for people too!)
1 1/4 cup uncooked flaked oats
1/2 cup peanut butter (no xylitol or sugar)
1/8 cup water
70 quarter teaspoons (6 tablespoons) of golden paste
Mix together thoroughly, measure into 70 portions, roll into balls and freeze. Each piece will contain about 1/4 teaspoon of GP.
If you have trouble getting 70 identical pieces, you can try spreading the mixture out in a shallow baking pan and score it in a 7x10 grid. Or if you're really OCD, lol, you could weigh your total mixture, divide that weight by 70, and then weigh the individual balls as you roll them out.
Remove from freezer and allow to sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
Diane Krall, an admin in the Facebook Turmeric User Group, suggests adding shredded coconut, hemp hearts, apple cider vinegar, or any other ingredients that your pet (or you) would like.
