My mum taught me how to make great soup, she had the ability to make soup out of anything and it always tasted like a ‘hug’.

Help me Rhonda kick start the Honda!

Kickstart or “activate” your turmeric. Who knew? Activated Turmeric is better than just slugging back Turmeric powder and hoping for the best & here is why.
