Tasty Tuesday: Ginger Broth

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

We have had a bout of a yucky tummy bug through our house the past several days. Unfortunately I seem to have gotten it the worst. It’s definitely hard on a family when mama is sick. 🙁

Thankfully my hubby will quickly step up to the plate if and when needed. Such has been the case this go-around as he has somehow managed to escape this yucky bug. He has been truly awesome this past week and I needed to give him a public shout-out: Thanks honey! 🙂

I don’t get sick too often but whenever I do hubby makes me this very simple ginger broth. In addition to the delicious flavor, the ginger helps settle an upset tummy while the garlic boosts your immune system. Plus the Bragg’s Liquid Aminos helps keep up those electrolytes.

While making it your house will be filled with yummy smells. Upon drinking it you will be filled with warmth and comfort. In fact I am enjoying a cup at this very moment as I type this out to share with you.

Ingredients:

2 cups of water

1 inch slice of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

1 clove of garlic, peeled and cut in half

1.5 tablespoons of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos

Directions:

Add all ingredients in a small pot and boil for 6 to 8 minutes.

Enjoy!

Tasty Tuesday: Raw Vegan Spinach Dip

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

I am almost always looking for new ideas of what do with greens…as much as I love green smoothies and kale salads, a little variety is definitely nice when it comes to eating healthy. I am in the home stretch right now of a two week cleanse where I learned some great new recipes and ideas for incorporating greens into our meals. One of my favorite new snacks is this raw, vegan, spinach dip**. It is a super duper quick snack, taking less than 5 minutes to prepare. Basically you throw the following ingredients in a food processor for a few minutes and voila, delicious and nutritious spinach dip!

Ingredients:

3 cups of fresh spinach

1 large avocado, pitted

juice from one lemon

1 clove of garlic

small sliver (approx. 1/8 teaspoon) of fresh peeled ginger*

sprinkle of curry*, cumin*, and salt

dash of cayenne pepper*

* these are intense flavors, especially when used in raw foods…a little goes a long way!

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in food processor until smooth. Serve immediately with raw veggies or flaxseed crackers.

ENJOY!
