Here’s Why You Need Some Ginger In Your Life

    why-you-need-to-start-having-ginger

    Ginger is known to be health promoting courtesy of thousands of years of evidence-based use in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese medicine, and hundreds of scientifically-based, peer review studies. Ginger is part of the plant family that includes turmeric, and two share many food-as-medicine qualities.

    According to the Culinary Health Solutions ginger can be used for the following.

    1. Add ginger to spicy foods. In many cases, where you might just add hot sauce for HEAT, add some freshly grated ginger to increase the ‘zing’ factor!
    2. Ginger and lemon have a long cozy history when it comes to good flavor pairs. A little goes a long way, but next time you make lemonade, add a bit of fresh or ground ginger.
    3. Traditional ‘sweet’ spices like cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom are also good friends with ginger, as in gingersnap cookies. Add fresh or ground ginger to apple pies, apple sauce, or even just fresh sliced apples with a touch of that whole spice mix is a great mid-day snack.
    4. Sweet potatoes can take ginger’s strong flavor too. Next time you make a mashed or whipped sweet potato, some fresh-grated ginger is a welcome departure from the norm for a sweet & spicy treat.
    5. If you’re a fan of soy sauce, try placing a couple of ginger slices in a glass jar and covering with soy sauce. After a few days, the soy will take on a lovely ginger aroma, perfect for stir-frys and sushi dipping.

    How I like to include ginger…

    Ginger is so easy to use especially if you have it in powder form. If I only have root it’s great to make a tea, just by boiling it in water, you can even add throw it in a Nutri-Bullet or juice machine. Since I prefer a powder, it makes it so easy to add to dishes, something even as fish with ginger and butter is not only delicious but healthy too! If you’re new to cooking or just ginger, add it to a berry smoothie or cook it with a stir fry, it blends perfectly and gives a gentle heat to your meal. If your not the best cook you can even use ginger as a snack. For the health nuts, you should check out GoMacro‘s newest line of plant-based nutrition bars: Thrive.
