Quote of the day: “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.” ~ Mother Teresa

Tip: Let’s talk about ginger root today. Ginger has many health benefits including it’s an anti-inflammatory, it’s been known to reduce nausea, lower blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels. It can provide relief to sore muscles and it’s even been known to fight infection, help with Vertigo and prevent cancer! This is an amazing food and it’s easy to find ways to consume it. You can cut it fresh and steep it in your tea or your soup, bake it with your fish or mince it into your stir-fry. The health benefits for this amazing root are chart topping and there are only 9 calories and 2 carbs per 5 slices of root so be liberal!  The good news too, is that the pickled ginger that comes with your sushi is just as healthy as the fresh ginger and has the added benefit of the vinegar it’s cured in. We’d like you to stick to the beige colored pickled ginger though, the pink ginger they often give you with your sushi has added food coloring to give it that pink hue. It’s an unnecessary chemical to add to such an amazing super food.
