Cleansing Ginger Carrot Soup

Cleansing Ginger Carrot Soup

Carrot soup recipe & content provided by Bare Nutrition Health

We often forget about soups as the weather gets warmer, but soup is such a great way to get ahead for the week, and one of my go-to ways to stay on track.  Make a pot of cleansing ginger-carrot soup to eat for lunch and dinner a couple days out of the week to keep your effort in the kitchen minimal.

Spring is the best time to hit the local farmers market for beautiful veggies. You can always find a colorful spread, including carrots and sweet potatoes. Farmers market carrots were the inspiration for this recipe.  Not only is this carrot soup super satisfying and nourishing, it is easy to digest and uses amazing anti-inflammatory and digestion-boosting ingredients.

Carrots are best known for delivering high levels of beta-carotene, which helps fight free radical damage, and protects your skin and vision.

Combining the carrots and sweet potato with spicy ginger, savory turmeric, and creamy coconut milk make for the perfect combo.
