Ginger has become a regular staple in my diet. I add fresh ginger to salads, in stir-fries or cooked in soups. Furthermore, I've come to love seasoning my baked goods (like my Allergy Free Gingersnap Cookies), pancakes and meat dishes with dried, ground ginger.
Why ginger? Well, first off, I love the flavor. But, ginger also has many healing and medicinal properties as well.
Benefits of Ginger
Ginger is a flowering plant, whose root is used as a spice for medicinal purposes, as well as flavoring food. Ginger contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. Including gingerol, which has great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Some of the many uses for ginger include:
- Minimizing nausea
- Lower inflammation
- Aid in digestion
- Easing menstrual cramps
- Regulate blood sugar
- Help reduce joint and muscle pain
- Improve brain function
- Fighting fungal infection
Personally, I use ginger as a way to aid in digestion, lower inflammation, regulate blood sugar and flavor my meals. I find that ginger tea helps a lot in calming an upset stomach.

How to make Grain Free Ginger-Banana Bread
The only equipment required for making this banana bread batter is a bowl, a mixing utensil and the necessary ingredients. Aren't one bowl recipes just the best?!
First, mash the bananas in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Next, mix in the wet ingredients.
Then, mix in the dry ingredients.
Next, pour the batter into a parchment lined 8" x 4" baking pan. And lastly, bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
Truly that simple! Just like banana bread should be.
