Gingered Carrot Soup - For the weight watchers

S


o I'm eating soup right now, which is incredibly easy to make. Recently I realised that I dint post any soup recipe so now I shall post some soup and salad recipes. This is my first step towards it.
This soup almost remind me of homemade tomato soup except it is little bit sweeter than that. Everyone knows the health benefits of carrot still I would like to mention that.

Health Benefits of Carrot:
  1. Carrot can enhance the quality of breast milk.
  2. Carrot can improve the appearance of the skin, hair and nails.
  3. When taken daily it can lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
  4. Raw contain beta-carotene, a strong antioxidant that can prevent cancer.
  5. Carrot juice when taken everyday prevent bodily infections and is claimed to be valuable for the adrenal glands (the small endocrine glands situated above the kidneys).
  6. Carrot can help improve eyesight.
  7. Carrot can help increase menstrual flow.
  8. Carrots can regulate blood sugar.
  9. Carrot can promote colon health, because carrot is rich in fiber.
