Ginger

Ginger is used often in Ayurvedic cooking.  It can be used in so many ways, both fresh and dried.  Fresh ginger is balancing for both Vata and Pitta.  Dried ginger, because it is stronger and more concentrated, is balancing for Kapha.  Ginger kindles agni, the digestive fire, so it helps the body to digest, absorb and assimilate food.  Ginger is especially helpful in the cold winter months.  It makes food lighter and easier and more digestible.  It is also wonderful to help alleviate coughs, congestion and runny noses.
