Ginger is packed with healthy nutrients. It can reduce muscle soreness, if eaten on a daily basis. It also has antibacterial properties which help fight infections and gives your immune system a little boost.
In order to get the most out of your ginger, you’ll want to make sure that you’re not wasting much of the root while peeling it. Veggie peelers tend to take off a generous portion of the root. Cutting the skin off can also strip away the root. So what’s the solution?… peel it with a spoon!
The amount of root stripped off is minimal, plus it’s super easy! Only peel the amount that you plan to use and put the remaining portion in the refrigerator.
