Ginger Winter Warmer!

by Leisa on July 22, 2013

We’re right in the middle of winter here on the Gold Coast at the moment, and like many, I too find myself drawn to warm foods during the cooler months. I do like to stay mainly raw though, so ginger becomes a staple in my house during the winter season.

Ginger 1 

Ginger is a wonderfully warming, circulatory stimulating herb.  It is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory, supports and tonifies digestion and has immune enhancing properties. There are many ways to have ginger, one of my favourites is having it in a mixed juice of a morning, such as a celery, carrot, green apple and ginger combination. If you are really feeling the cold however, having 30ml of ginger juice on it’s own of a morning can spread a beautiful warmth through your body and is used by many people living in very cold climates as an internal heating system. Ginger teas can be soothing as well – ginger, lemon and honey is a lovely combination; and if you are not completely raw, grated ginger is a fantastic addition to winter curries and stir-frys.

Don’t be without this valuable herb this winter! Try some ginger one cold morning and see what you think!

I tried some fresh lemon, grated ginger and honey in hot water and it was lovely! I’m having this instead of my normal cup of tea now of a morning.

Thanks for the information!

I am relieved to read that you too have some cooked warm meals in winter, as i have been wondering how a raw foodie gets through winter? However as I live in beuatiful Tasmania, and winter is especially cool today minimum was just below zero! SO raw food is an addition to main meals but fresh fruit and porriage with a dash of macca and coconut oil is a welcome starter. I love ginger and I shall try you ginger tea it sounds lovely.
Thanaks for making me feel less “guilty”
