Have you had candied ginger ? It taste good and you get some of the ginger benefit. I buy for trips. On my recent trip, I knew roads will be curvy, going through mountains. Sometimes I end up getting motion sickness so I just ate 1-2 ginger candies after breakfast and I was fine sitting in tempo all day.
I bought mine at Trader’s Joe. Even amazon has it and Asian market also have it. Some of my colleagues also got hooked onto this ginger candies. One of the Colleague said she makes tea from it and I thought that was a good idea.
I just boiled water and threw 2-3 candied ginger and a small piece of lemon. At the end , you can eat ginger. Will help with digestion I think. Try it out after your dinner and see if you like it .
When you want to do something in life , you start with “how do I do this ?” Most of the time ppl start I can’t b/c …. people don’t take vacation assuming boss won’t allow but did you ask ? Life doesn’t come with a map and as we go we have to figure things out . If we just learn how to navigate then things become easy. Alright , Enough of nonsense.
