You might not use ginger a lot in everyday cooking, but think about it this way: If you like gingerbread, you’ll love ginger coffee. Add a few slices of fresh ginger root or a couple tablespoons (or teaspoons depending on your container) of ginger powder to your coffee grounds.
Ginger is a natural digestive aid, so it can actually calm your stomach if you find coffee aggravating. Aside from treating gas and bloating, ginger root can also help soothe sore throats and colds, ease the pain from arthritis, and reduce inflammation, lowering your risk for prostate cancer, according to research published in Herbal Medicine.
