Turmeric and cumin are two amazing spices that do a great job keeping the body healthy. Turmeric has great anti-inflammatory properties, and has shown to be just as effective as over-the-counter pain killers. It's also shown to be helpful in aiding people with inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Cumin is an excellent source of iron and a known energy-booster. This spice also aids in digestion, too.

This is a really simple recipe that is full of flavor and begging for a nutritious side. See body type suggestions below!

Apple Types: Your body type does best by using chicken thighs for this recipe. They're full of flavor, just as easy…and less expensive, too. You'll still get plenty of protein, but you'll also get a little more fat that your body type needs. Pair this with a non-starchy vegetable, or a big spinach side salad.

Athlete & Pear Types: You can enjoy this recipe as is. Pair with sweet potatoes or quinoa.

Babyface Types: You, too can enjoy this recipe as is, but watch the portions and pair with a leafy green salad drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. 

  • 1 lb Chicken Breasts/Thighs (see body type descriptions)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ tsp turmeric (powder)
  • 1 ½ tsp cumin

Note: Add salt after baking for best flavor. Adding salt while cooking may pull too much moisture out of chicken. 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine turmeric and cumin. Set aside. In a medium bowl, coat chicken breasts with olive oil. Finally, sprinkle spice mixture over chicken breasts and rub over each piece thoroughly. The spice mixture should be evenly distributed over each breast. Bake for 15 minutes. Server with mixed greens and sweet potatoes.
