The fiery root has been a powerhouse in Oriental cooking for generations, but how can you apply this to your diet without a spice overload?
Why not give your coffee an extra kick in the morning by grating a small amount of root ginger into it? Coffee has also been shown to have some positive effects in terms of strength, power and memory*. It’s sure to be worth getting up for!
If you’re counting the calories, ginger is a great way to spice up a plain nicoise. Sprinkle a small amount over your greens rather than drowning it with dressing. Ginger basically has no fat, no sugar, so all you’re getting is the anti-oxidants and gingery goodness.
A little ginger into Greek yoghurt (maybe with some muesli) would surely be a great way to start your day. The coolness of the yoghurt balances out the fiery pang of the ginger, so this is a great option for those who aren’t a fan of overly spicy food.
4. Stir Fry.
Throw together a simple stir fry with thai prawns, black beans, spring onions and ginger. Add some egg noodles and make a paste with fish sauce, the ginger and spring onions. Add in a red pepper for a little sweetness, and you’ve got yourself a guilt free homemade takeaway.
