I would like to start by saying that I have nothing against gingers (got some ginger hair myself underneath all this hair dye), so don’t go reading too much into this title.

In fact, I love ginger, for many reasons:

* It boasts anti-inflammatory properties. If your joints ache, your muscles are sore, you’ve got cramps – just eat some ginger. You’ll feel much better. It is also excellent to boost your immune system, so consuming ginger on a regular basis will help keep your nose snot-free.
* It is wonderfully warming. Try adding some grated ginger to hot water or hot chocolate for a comforting brew.
* It helps to reduce flatulence (isn’t that a miracle!). Other than that, it has many other gastrointestinal benefits, such as relief from vomiting and nausea during pregnancy, motion sickness, and even protection against colorectal cancer. A potent little root, to say the least.
* Oh and apparently it’s an aphrodisiac. Go try that.

So drink it, or eat it! I love adding a small chunk to my juices (I repeat: small chunk, as this is a very potent little root, mind you) or grating some into my smoothies, soups, stir-frys, and desserts. Even hot chocolate with some grated ginger is lovely. Or brown rice, hmm. Try it in any which way you like, a little to begin with, and figure out for yourself how you like to consume this root. I think we could all do with incorporating more into our diet, especially in the winter when our immune system can use all the help it can get.

Peachy Ginger Green Monster [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 2 ripe peaches, stones removed and flesh cut into small chunks
  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • 1 cup almond milk (or water, but that will make it less creamy)
  • 1 handful kale
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 cm / half an inch cube of fresh, peeled ginger, grated (or more if you like a good kick in your smoothie)


  1. Blend all ingredients at high speed and serve immediately. If your blender is a bit old or just not so high-tech, add the frozen banana bit by bit to spare your machine and add a little more milk or water as needed.





After turning vegan, I discovered a particular talent for baking delicious cruelty-free cakes and cookies. It was then that my friends named me ‘The Vegan Cookie Fairy’ and my blog was born. I find happiness in preparing and eating food that is good for my body and soul — but cats and yoga help, too.
