I am crazy about ginger. I love in it in teas, food, smoothies, juices…basically everywhere. One of my favorite sauces to use is this
Oh my goodness it is so good you can put it on anything! Anyway so last night for dinner J sauteed up some chicken, I steamed some broccoli then added a little celtic salt and drizzled it with the ginger sauce. I also made eat live run’s Honey Ginger Glazed Carrots and they were so good! You need to try them, so simple and alot of flavor!
Another food that I am excited about lately is Purple Potatoes! Do you guys ever eat these? I’ve known about them for awhile but I didn’t really know much about them so I would always pass over them and reach for sweet potatoes. I finally decided to do a little research and I when I did I could not wait to try them! The neat thing about them is that they taste like regular Russet Potatoes but there nutritional benefits are much greater. Purple potatoes contain 4 times the antioxidants than russet potatoes. Apparently Anthocyanin is the pigment that causes the potatoes to be purple and acts as the antioxidant. All potatoes are high in potassium but the higher antioxidants in the purple potatoes make them more effective in regulating blood pressure. So basically if you want the taste of a russet potato with amped up nutritional value then reach for the purple potato!!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
