I know what you're thinking. Why does homegirl have fresh ginger root on hand? Honestly, I have no idea. I remember buying it last week. I picked it up, put it in my basket, brought it home and put it in my fridge. Zero plans of doing anything with it. Except randomly throwing it in a stir fry, apparently.
What do we know about ginger root? I know it's good in both beer and ale form. It's an awesome natural cure for PMS and tummy aches, neither of which I'm suffering from at this moment. But what am I suffering from that apparently ginger root is good for? Ginger root helps reduce muscle soreness. I've been attempting to start running again (emphasis on attempting) and my calves are just killing me. Let's see what this ginger can do, shall we? Since I put a ton in my stir fry, I'll let you know if I notice my legs feeling any better.
