Ginger, Pear, and Turmeric Muffins



Ginger, Pear, and Turmeric Muffins Recipe

The warming and pungent qualities of ginger and turmeric make a perfect pairing for winter muffins. They both support healthy digestion and are known in the Ayurvedic tradition to enkindle agni (digestive fire) and clear toxins from the gut. Most herbalists worldwide agree that supporting good digestion and elimination is necessary for health and quality of life. Both of these delicious herbs support healthy immune function, clear congestion in the head and chest, warm the body when chilled, and stimulate good digestion.
