Ginger Cannellini Bruschetta

This recipe is great when you think in terms of wholistic eating and it taste good.

I have found that a lot of people are set in their way of eating…I was and at sometimes still am….enough of that…I just was on the phone with my youngest daughter I shared what the post was for today….she says I don’t understand what ginger has to do with mental health…I went on to explain to her in terms of wholistic health…consider the digestive system and the body as a whole, there are a variety of mental health issues related to physical health issues…Anxiety affects the whole body including the digestive system. The body, mind, food connection is real. To make a long story short…..According to most research it assist the chemicals that promote digestion, so if those chemicals are less apt to flare up during a moment of anxiety that’s one less issues.

Weather you are dealing with mental health issues or physical health issues or no issues and your just hungry and looking for a great snack, or company is coming….the below recipe is one I hope you enjoy. I don’t know how you could make this for one or two people…..I had it at a soiree 😘
