Cleansing Ginger Carrot Soup

Three times a year I create a wholefood cleanse program for my clients and followers. One in spring, on in fall and one for each new year. Every program has a collection of seasonal inspired recipes within a structured meal plan and all of them use fresh, wholefood ingredients, loads of veggies and some specially selected herbs for safe, gentle, and effective whole-body cleansing support. I created this recipe for my 2018 New Year program and it’s a keeper! This soup is great for any season and doesn’t taste anything like “cleanse food”, making it a great addition to your everyday recipe collection.

Ginger is always a star ingredient in my cleanse programs. It stimulates robust digestion, circulation and sweating for active removal of toxins. Ginger is also anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and very soothing to the digestive system while promoting digestive enzyme production. Plus it contains potent antimicrobial compounds and is used traditionally and conventionally to reduces gas, bloating, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.

This soup is also fabulous for the skin! Ginger is known as a skin cleanser and this soup combines it with lots of fresh carrots, adding their rich beta-carotene, a potent and vibrant antioxidant and skin rejuvenating nutrient.

Oh, and did I mention that it’s SO EASY to make? ‘Cause it is!
