On the menu tonight... green Thai curry with Tempeh and these gorgeous vegetables 🌶 • • In Asian cultures foods and spices like ginger, tumeric, and chili are heavily featured. Not only do these add stunning flavors and heat, but they come with a myriad of health benefits too. I’ll focus on just a few: • • 👉🏼 Ginger, originating from China, is wonderful in everything from stir fries to curries. As a tea 🍵 it helps with nausea management for pregnancies or cancer. Gingerol is a powerful antioxidant that reduces cell damage, preventing cancer. It is also an anti-inflammatory which is great for not only joint health, but for overall health because the meat and processed food heavy diets of the West tend to trigger many inflammation mechanisms in our bodies, and over time, that’s not good for anything from our heart to brain health. 👉🏼 Curcumin, found in a family member of ginger, turmeric, is another very powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammation properties. It lends curries their bright orange colors. 👉🏼 Chilies and capsaicin, which offer the 🔥 to meals. Capsaicin has been heavily researched for pain management. Used in topical agents, it binds with pain receptors in muscles, offering immediate relief. Eaten in moderation, it offers several antioxidants, too. • • I’m sure you’ve seen ginger and turmeric supplements but the best “bioactivity” of nutrients is really in foods. “Bioactivity” refers to how accessible nutrients are to your gut’s absorption. The more bioavailable, the better the chances these nutrients will enter your blood stream and target the areas that need them. So consider using these fresh. • • #blendedlife #blend2thrive #asiandiet #ginger #tumeric #chilli #curry #hea#healthd #health #nutrients #nutrition #registereddietitian #registereddietitianapproved
