10 Health Benfits of Ginger

Ginger & Herb Rice

Cook basmati rice. When you take the lid off the pan, quickly stir in finely chopped garlic, ginger, green chillies and fresh cilantro leaves—the burst of flavor and fragrance will drive your senses crazy with desire!

Ginger In Your Juice

‘Grate’ idea: grate some ginger root and put it in your juicer, along with carrots and apples and a little lemon juice. Totally yummy, and of course, so good for you!

Gingery Dessert

Even a smidgen of grated ginger on your vanilla pana cotta or strawberry sorbet can wake up the flavor!

Ginger Balances  Your Doshas

If your Ayurvedic dosha is Vata (airy, restless) or Kapha (heavy, sluggish), ginger can be to your ailments what a hero is to the baddies. But if you are a naturally fiery Pitta type of person, go easy on the ginger. To understand your unique dosha personality, see a good ayurvedic physician.

When I have a cold, NOTHING makes me feel better than a big chunk of chopped ginger steeped into tea or hot soup!

I use a lot of ginger and find it every bit as good as you say. I add it to many of my favourite dishes whether they have ginger in the recipe or not, and we also adore ginger tea.

I tend to use cinnamon as a natural sweetener too.
