It was raining cats and dogs and all I wanted was some comforting, hot, nutritious lunch at home. With these requirements, soups fit in best. Sipping a bowl of hot and fragrant soup gives an amazing feeling of relaxation. This carrot ginger soup recipe is a very relaxing process from cooking through sipping as it fills the senses with lovely aromas.
Carrots are not only good for your eyes but also lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The rich orange color from the beta-carotene is a great supply of antioxidants nutrients our body needs. People with diabetes avoid carrots as they have high sugar content. True...but studies show 2/3 carrot daily can help regular blood sugar. The sugar is carrots is high compared to other vegetables. Its not high in sugar if compared to fruits or prepared foods.
