Ginger

I don't like the taste of ginger at all, but know it's good for me, so how should I go about getting it in?

Is it better to do a ginger shot then drink a small sweet juice (orange and carrot)? Or is it better to add a small amount of ginger to every juice? (I put a 1/2" in my carrot orange juice yesterday and it was hard to drink with that much ginger!)

I guess I want to know is it better to have it all day or is a shot just as good? I haven't tried doing a ginger shot, but was thinking it might be good to just do it in the morning and get it out of the way!

*I have a lot of joint pain and have heard that ginger can help with that a lot.


Thanks!

    forgot to ask: how much ginger should I try to get in a day? I don't have a great juicer (cannot afford an upgrade any time soon) so it is not extracting well (or maybe it is and it's normal to have SO MUCH in the discard basket -and yes it's "wet" not dry).

    Hi Rhiannon, i don't like ginger as much. I know its really good for you but i rather have it in food than to have in a juice. I don't think its a big deal if we don't use it during a juice fast. Pretty much all green veggies have healing properties. I'm also giving up on celery, I just can't drink the stuff anymore. I only like it in soups so i'll have it when my fast is over.

    I'm only doing ginger because it can help my joint pain. Otherwise, I'd give it up!!! :-)

    Dear Rhiannon,

    You can replace ginger with fresh turmeric and/or do the shot with a thumb size of ginger in the morning in your lemon hot water!

    Enjoy!
