Eat Ginger, Shovel Snow

By on Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Yesterday (on the East Coast, anyway) we found ourselves with a whole, new fun pile of icy, crystally, icky snow-slush-ice to shovel. Boo! But according to today’s Science section of the New York Times, if we all just eat a bunch of ginger — long known for its stomach-soothing attributes — it gets rid of sore muscles, too. So get out there and shovel! Or get on that New Year’s resolution to work-out and throw your free-weights in the air like you just don’t care! It’s all about the ginger, kids.
