The GingerBread Man

My Beautiful Ladies and Gents…. Welcome to the Christmas Holiday Season 2014! Let’s talk Health and Cookies….. all in the same breath. The GingerBread Man or Woman…. is a most healthy cookie with special powers that we can make at home. Now with the small amount of fresh ginger we are using for our gingerbread cookies is minimal…. but it’s still fresh ginger…. and it still has some serious benefits. Let me share just 4 of the many benefits of the fresh ginger we will be using in our GingerBread People Recipe. 
 
1* Fresh Ginger has Immunity Boosting properties. 2* Helps protect against Colon Cancer. 3* This is a HUGE one…. Ginger contains very very powerful ANTI-INFLAMMATORY compounds. 4* It’s a safe and effective relief of nausea and vomiting (especially during pregnancy). 
Okay Beautiful Peeps…. Let’s create!! One of our favorite recipes comes from Martha Stewart…..

  7. I always seem to forget about gingerbread cookies until the holiday season! But it reminds me how much I love them! It has become quite the tradition in my house to always leave Santa gingerbread cookies before the kids go to bed. Seems “Santa” likes to eat the arms and legs and leave the rest for the kids to freak out about on Christmas morning!

  8. A good cookie NEVER goes out of style! I love this recipe; it sounds amazing. I am definitely adding these to the other treats I’m making for the holidays!
