I  love anything carrot–especially carrot ginger soup.  When I saw this recipe I thought to myself–soothing and immune boosting. What is not to love?

Ginger:

  • supports brain function

  • may inhibit some forms of cancer

  • fights respiratory viruses

  • promotes digestive health

Carrots contain:

  • Beta Carotene

  • vitamin K

  • vitamin C

  • calcium.

I don’t peel my carrots.  Wash them well, and buy organic when you can so you don’t have to worry about pesticides.
