Did you know?

Ginger is a great food for boosting your immune system, especially on a cold day, thanks to the warming action it provides. It encourages healthier sweat, which has been linked to a protein called dermicidin produced by the body’s sweat glands. Dermicidin helps fight off invading microorganisms, ranging from harmful bacteria to irritating fungi. Mussels, meanwhile, provide almost as much protein as a steak with less cholesterol and a huge boost to Omega 3 fatty acids! Omega 3 fatty acids have been linked to better brain function, and are considered highly important when it comes to a healthier mind.
