I love GINGER! My favorite is Crystallized Ginger made using organic ginger and organic sugar. It is my go to snack when I want something sweet!
I do not make my own - I buy from the Lagrange General Store. They make the BEST organic crystallized ginger!
I like crystallized ginger because of the taste but I also like that it is a natural remedy for my arthritis plus 1/3 cup is about 100 calories.
Being active with arthritis is so important - being able to eat healthily and be active is a win win!
Ginger is know to aid in:
Protect Against Certain Cancers
I work at our local hospital Emergency Department. I have not gotten sick from any of the nasty viruses going around. When I start to feel like a bug is coming my way - I make a patch of Ginger Root and Salt. I know sounds nasty - and yes it it is not the best tasting thing in the world! But it works! I cut up ginger root into small pieces. I place the cut up ginger in a baggie and then I add about a teaspoon of regular crushed sea salt. I chew the small pieces through out the day. It is amazing how the salted ginger dries up my nasal cavities.
A few other ways I use Ginger:
I add a few drops of Ginger essential oil in my water once a day. Helps with my arthritis.
I add Ginger essential oils to my homemade organic lotions
If you have never tried Ginger - I definitely recommend you give it a try.
