Ginger is high in gingerol, which has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, it has been shown to lower blood sugar levels and improve various heart disease risk factors. Ginger is a superfood and well worth to incorporate into your meals routine.

Coconut sugar
Coconut sugar is the dehydrated sap of the coconut palm. It is very sweet and has a bit of a nutty aroma to it, it is not as processed as white sugar and therefore maintain a few of the coconut fruit's nutrients. 
A few examples of these nutrients are the minerals iron, zinc, calcium and potassium, along with some antioxidants. Coconut sugar also contains a fiber called inulin, which slows glucose absorption and this is why some people with glycemic restrictions can eat it.
