NATIONAL GINGERSNAP DAY

Mmmmmm, hungry?  Celebrate July 1st, National Gingersnap Day, by enjoying this sweet and savory treat. Gingersnaps are cookies typically made from molasses, cloves, ginger, cinnamon and brown sugar.  They are a combination of sweet and spicy and have long been enjoyed by many.

Gingersnaps are a healthier alternative to other cookies, being that they are generally low in calories and have many benefits.  The ginger that is in these cookies has anti-inflammatory properties, is known to help treat nausea and fight heart disease and other illnesses.

The American version of the gingersnap is a little more like a sugar cookie, while other versions, such as the Scandinavian one, is a small, thin cookie.

CELEBRATE

To enjoy this national holiday, you could make a batch yourself and savor a nice treat while knowing that you are getting some health benefits at the same time!  Here is just one gingersnap recipe you can try. Post on social media using #NationalGingersnapDay to encourage others to join in paying it forward.

HISTORY

The history of the gingersnap goes back for centuries.  Ginger dates back to the middle ages and gingersnaps have long been created in Germany and England.  The original creator of National Gingersnap Day, an “unoffical” holiday, could not be located.
