Vegan Apple Crumble with ginger

Ginger must be one of our favourite spices, we use it in almost everything from soup to juices, stews, curries, porridge and of course fresh ginger tea. Why? Not just because it tastes great, but also because it is one of the most potent natural anti-inflammation spices that exists. ⁠


The ginger root is related to its potent family member turmeric and has been used throughout the times in traditional medicine. Ginger helps to:⁠

  • improve digestion ⁠
  • reduce nausea (morning sickness)⁠
  • fight common cold and flu ⁠
  • relieve muscle aches and soreness⁠ (great for active yogis!)
  • support blood health⁠
  • relieve menstrual cramps (forget about Ibuprofen)
  • inhibits growth of many bacteria
  • lowers the risk of infection

So yes, this quite literally is a power root and adding it to your every day diet is a great idea! ⁠You can even add it to your dessert and pastries. To inspire you we share a yummy Apple Crumble recipe with a nice dose of this natural medicine.
