#EatWellLiveWell: Classic Gingerbread Cookies

With the holidays in full swing, it’s time of family meals, decorations and desserts. One particular dessert, gingerbread, may offer your family some tasty health benefits. Ginger has been used for its medicinal purposes as early as 200 B.C. in Greece, The Middle East and China as teas, candies and herbal remedies. Here are some of its proposed effects:

  • Combat Motion Sickness. Dizziness, nausea and cold sweats are all familiar feelings to people plagued by motion sickness. Ginger is often used to help alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness or general nausea.
  • Colorectal Cancer Protection. Gingerols, a component of ginger, may help protect against the growth and development of colorectal cancer cells. 
  • Fighting Arthritis and Muscle Pain. Gingerols may also offer anti-inflammatory properties and pain relief to individuals with arthritis and muscle pain. 

Check out this deliciously delectable recipe for our savory gingerbread cookies!
