Has anyone suggested drinking ginger ale when you felt queasy? If you didn’t have any and substituted with a lemon-lime soda, your condition might not have improved. Why? Because ginger actually helps reduce nausea and vomiting.
Who knew that the average kitchen contains plenty of ingredients that can contribute to healthy digestion? Check your spice cabinet and see if you have these seasonings:
Mix 1 teaspoon each of cayenne, cinnamon, ginger, and turmeric in a small airtight jar. Add ¼ to ½ teaspoon per serving to your favorite smoothie recipe. You can also add it to hot teas and pie fillings as well as cake, muffin, pancake, and waffle batters.
Scallion-Ginger Broccoli Beef1 takes only about 30 minutes to stir-fry. Be sure to use low-sodium soy sauce, tamari, and chicken broth. And you can always substitute your favorite protein—chicken, shrimp, tofu—for the beef.
*To add more fiber, cut up heads of fresh broccoli, including part of the stalks, instead of buying bags of florets.
