How To Reap Ginger Benefits

IMG_1797

  • Ginger is widely used for upset stomach and nausea. There are other benefits too we keep reading now a days.
  • Ginger is used in India for everyday cooking but you don’t need to cook indian food just to use ginger.
  • Use fresh ginger root to reap benefits. It stays good for at least a month in fridge.
  • Here’s few of my ideas to use:
  • If you make soup, add some shredded ginger into it while soup is boiling. Start with 1/2 tsp and then adjust depending on your taste. It will help with digestion and will give a good flavour too.
  • If you cook your beans at home, add a little piece of ginger while cooking it. Same benefits as above.
  • If you saute vegetable or anything else, then you can saute shredded ginger in oil for 15-20 seconds. It will flavour your oil.
  • Ginger Tea: Boil a cup of water  with shredded ginger. Strain and you can add little good quality honey if you like.
  • In india, when someone is  suffering from indigestion, this is what they do. Cut small pieces of ginger, add some salt and fresh lemon juice. Eat one piece 3o mins before meal. It will help with digestion. Store rest in fridge. Will stay good for few days.
  • There are many more…but i will stop here. Hope you got the idea.
  • You can buy small shredder at dollar store to shredd ginger. I have one to make ginger tea.
  • Enjoy ginger and you will not have digestion problem.
