Eight Tasty Ways To Add More Ginger Into Your Diet

Aside from being delicious, ginger also offers a myriad of potential health benefits. It’s great at relieving nausea, is a proven anti-inflammatory, a potent antimicrobial, an antioxidant, and a painkiller, with potential anti-cancer properties thrown in the mix too. So whether you’re suffering from morning sickness or have painful menstrual cramps, are trying to reduce chronic inflammation, or reduce symptoms of an inflammatory disorder, then it’s worth adding a bit more ginger into your diet. Here are eight tasty ways to eat more ginger!

  • Brew A Cup Of Ginger Tea

Ginger tea makes a great winter warmer and is the perfect way to soothe a sore throat or an upset stomach. You can find ginger tea bags in most health-food stores, but it’s just as easy to make a fresh cup using some freshly grated ginger root. Check out our post on ginger tea here for more information. 

  • Keep A Bottle Of Ginger Water In The Fridge 

Ginger water is essentially the cold version of ginger tea. Simply steep freshly grated ginger in cold water, and you’ve got yourself a refreshing summer beverage with the added benefits of ginger. If you like things bubbly, then try using sparkling water instead of still. 

  • Make A Ginger Infused Oil 

Ginger oil not only tastes great but is the perfect partner for sore muscles too. Use it in your cooking for a subtle ginger flavor, or massage it onto the skin as a topical balm. When applied to painful muscles, the active compounds found in ginger work their way into the bloodstream, reducing inflammation and providing pain relief. 

  • Swap Sweets For Candied Ginger

Suppose you have a sweet tooth and often find yourself snacking on junk food, swap out sweets for more nutritionally dense candied ginger. Candied ginger will still satisfy even the sweetest sweet tooth and provide you with the health benefits of fresh ginger. 

  • Try Ginger Syrup 

If you ever have a go at making candied ginger yourself, then it’ll leave you with some delicious tasting ginger syrup. Drizzle it over pancakes or try it in cocktails; just don’t throw it away! 

  • Make A Ginger Pickle 

If you’re looking for a way to make your fresh ginger last for longer, then you have to make your own ginger pickle. Ginger pickle can be made using vinegar or alcohol to create the perfect zingy accompaniment to virtually any main course dish, and when stored correctly, it lasts forever too!

  • Add Ginger To Your Smoothies 

If you haven’t tried it already, then the next time you make a smoothie, add in a knob of freshly peeled ginger root. If you like the flavor of ginger, then make it the star of the show, or if you’re less keen, then use a more reserved amount and let other ingredients do the talking. 

  • Get Baking With Ginger 

Last but not least, don’t forget that ginger works terrifically in cakes, bakes, and cookies. Try adding some crystallized ginger to your next batch of muffins or a teaspoon of ginger powder to your next cake for an uplifting ginger flavor.
