Ginger & Lime Fruit Salad (GF) (V)

Fresh ginger is one of my favourite flavours. It is aromatic, spicy and oh so warming. This morning I decided to spice up some super ripe mangoes I had sitting in my fridge in this ginger and lime fruit salad.

Happytummyfact – Ginger is great for an uneasy tummy especially if you are suffering from motion sickness.  It is anti-inflammatory and great for boosting your immune system to ward of pesky colds. In ancient times the Greeks would even wrap ginger in bread to help sooth their tummy woes. This eventually led to the invention of the delicious treat we now know as gingerbread.
