That’s no secret: ginger and turmeric are two of my favorite ingredients in the kitchen. Several months ago, I have been introduced to these powerful superfoods by my friend that shared a recipe of a smooth and exotic Spice Turmeric Tea (link) with me. Since then I have been experimenting a lot with these amazing Asian plants. Today, my “guinea pigs” found their way in a delicious and healthy vegan Protein Bites with Ginger and Turmeric.  

Don’t let unusual ingredients intimidate you! These bites are mostly made with familiar nuts and are sweetened with Stevia.  Did I mention they are known for their anti-inflammatory properties? Well, maybe you have just discovered a new cold treatment.
