9. Ginger is Terrific
I love ginger.
It's great for weight loss, it's flavorful without adding a ton, and it smells great.
But fresh ginger is pretty expensive in my area so an alternative is growing it.
Take a spare piece of ginger root and plant in a pot of soil, bud side up.
You'll notice shoots in about a week and then you can pull and re-use.
Save some again to re-plant to always keep your stock full.
