5 Ginger Recipes That Will Satiate Your Ginger Cravings

If you’ve been reading our blog lately, then you probably came across our post about ginger and how it is the root that keeps on giving. Ginger has an endless list of health benefits that starts with fighting inflammation, boosting immunity, slowing cancer growth, decreasing cholesterol, regulating blood sugar levels and ends with providing necessary vitamins and minerals and improving the skin, hair and nail growth.

Ginger is also a very versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of recipes and actually brings out the flavour of all the ingredients. You can have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner or even in a snack.

We have listed some of our favourite ginger recipes with some variety to suit most types of diet plans and intolerances. But before we get into that, we would like to bring awareness to the ingredients that we choose. It is very important to go for organic, or traditionally grown ingredients that are sourced locally. By doing so, we would be encouraging local farmers and selecting ingredients that are herbicides, pesticides and chemicals free.
