Keto CookiesI used to bake cookies all the time, but living with PCOS I had to slow down on the cookie consumption and live that keto lifestyle. Luckily, I came upon this idea of ginger and turmeric cookies on instagram because I need my keto snacks!
I am a big big fan of ginger, from tea’s to Japanese food pairings and desserts. Did you know that one of gingers health benefit is to help relieve gastrointestinal irritation? Consuming ginger stimulates the creation of saliva and improves the movement in your GI tract! What an awesome super food, right? Then combine it with another trending super food named turmeric and you’re in business. Turmeric is an ingredient I’m trying to put in more of my recipes. It has so many good qualities!! What does turmeric bring to the table you ask? It has natural anti-inflammatory compounds that can help prevent chronic diseases. I couldn’t believe I could add all these wonderful ingredients to something so delicious as a keto cookie! So maybe now they’ll start saying “A cookie a day, keeps the doctor away” ?
