Fire for Your Tummy: Ginger
Ginger is a multitasking spice that soothes the tummy. Ingested, ginger root relieves menstrual cramps, morning sickness, motion sickness, bloating and any other kind of stomach upset you can think of.
My favorite way to use this fiery spice is iced ginger tea, so refreshing and healing! Chop up and boil ginger root in a pot of water. Strain, let cool, add ice cubes and more water plus fresh mint leaves for the perfect summer libation. Add agave or honey for sweetening. (It’s really delicious with no sweeter added!) This healthful elixir is perfect for after a meal to aid digestion or simply as a refresher after an intense HSM workout.
