My Superfoods: Ginger + Green Ginger Iced Tea Recipe


Welcome to my new blog featured superfoods! The foods I love for optimal health and wellbeing. 

The first feature is Gingeran ancient spice traditionally used as medicine to aid digestion and treat stomach upset and nausea. 

Why I love Ginger:

  1. Nausea: Well I always get motion sickness. I can prove wrong the saying that you can’t get car sickness when your the driver. I definitely can!! So ginger can be a life saver at times when Im out on a boat, needing to drive in stop/start traffic or just when I’m not feeling 100%. It is also great if you are experiencing morning sickness, motion sickness, lack of appetite or just nausea in general.
  2. Digestion: When my stomach is upset, chewing on fresh ginger or a cup of ginger tea (recipe below) does magic. It can help treat cramping, bloating and flatulence and provide relief from female monthly period pain and associated symptoms. Also it aids digestion in activating digestive juices when consumed before a meal.
  3. Metabolism: Ginger is one of the foods to ‘consume in abundance’ on my 14 Day Holistic Metabolism Kick Start Program  because it assists in the metabolism of essential nutrients in the body.  When on the program it works wonders particularly in the Green Detox Smoothie.
  4. Cold & Flu Defence: If I feel something coming on, 1 tbs of grated fresh ginger in warm water I find kills anything if I get it early enough. If Im too late however it also assists with recovery and congestion relief.

Here is a simple ginger recipe I love that soothes and boosts the body.

Ginger & Green Tea Recipe:

1x Organic Green Tea Bag (I used Clippers)

2 slices of fresh Ginger

Squeeze Lemon

Fill a cup 3/4 full with boiling water then add a small amount of cold filtered water to make the water 80 degrees celsius (perfect for brewing herbal tea).

Add in the ginger and the green tea bag and leave for at least 10 minutes to brew and cool down. Take out the tea bag before placing in the fridge for 1 hour.

Serve with ice and a squeeze of lemon.

Enjoy!
