These seven recipes featuring ginger will help prepare your body for cold and flu season. This time of year is especially important to focus on healthy habits to keep your immune system strong, which includes making sure your snack game is in tip-top shape!

Ginger is a great immunity booster

Many plant-based foods are full of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) to keep your body healthy and thriving from the inside out. And ginger is one of the best.

Ginger can help decrease inflammation, which can be helpful if you’ve got a pesky sore throat (see the recipe for hot lemon ginger tonic below – it’s a go-to of mine). It also can help with chronic pain, which tends to flare up for some people during the colder months.

Try out these 7 easy ways to cook with ginger this winter and give your immune system a boost, while enjoying a delicious snack, beverage, muffin, or power bowl!
