One of the benefits of eating whole foods is that it promotes a greater total wellbeing. If we can use less energy in the digestion of food, we will allow for more energy for the use in regulating the body, having energy for daily activties, and promote wellness overall. Eating processed foods takes away energy from our body and avoiding those foods will give you more energy in feeling better. "If we unlock that energy, our bodies will radiate from the inside out."

This recipe uses ginger since it is known to stimulate your body’s natural digestion and move food through your system allowing for the removal of toxins. Compounds in ginger have been shown to reduce inflammation and it can be a helpful treatment for those with any sore muscles.
