Creamy carrot and ginger soup

Creamy carrot and Ginger soup

The weather is getting a little colder here, so I’ve been craving warmer meals. This Vegan Carrot Ginger Soup is just what we need.

Soup is a simple, yet flavorful  that is packed full of goodness! Chopped fresh ginger is blended with chunks of carrot and coconut milk to create this creamy, delicious soup. 

We have included some simple and wholesome ingredients. You should have everything in your cupboard. Nothing fancy at all.

Did you know that include ginger can boost your health as well as adding delicious flavour to your dish. Ginger may also be used as a pain-reliever and may be used as a treatment for degenerative health disorders. Ginger has shown to display antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Then you have carrots which contain vitamin Aantioxidants, and other nutrients.

Evidence suggests that eating more antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, can help reduce the risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Carrots are also rich in vitaminsminerals, and fiber. 

 

I don’t know why but I think we find ourselves focused on comfort food in winter and not always the healthiest nutritious options. Soups and stews can become your best friend for the season. Try them healthy (do not drown soups in cream or unnecessary fats)keep them tasty, colorful, and full of vitamins.

Homemade Bone Broth




 

 

This broth recipe is simple and healthy,no waste! Full of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and collagen.

What is Broth?

It is a mineral rich infusion made by boiling bones of healthy animals with vegetables, herbs and spices, also a powerful health addition that you can easily add to your family’s food.Bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor and they boost healing.

This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine that have the power to transform your health.

  • Treat leaky gut syndrome – The gelatin in the bones typically used for making it (such as knuckles, feet, and other joints) is said to help seal up holes in intestines. (People who have leaky gut syndrome have porous intestinal lining.) This “patching” can help ease chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerance’s. ( Jill Grunewald – Healthful Elements) While helping overcome food intolerance’s and allergies.
  • Boost immune system. Because of bone broth’s high concentration of minerals, Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, goes as far as to call bone broth a “superfood” that can strengthen your immune system.
  • Sleep better. Research has shown that glycogen, found in bone broth, may help improve sleep and ward off fatigue.
  • Improve joint health – The phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium in the bones seep out into the broth, leaving you to sip all those essential nutrients for your own healthy bones.
  • Reduce Cellulite – by improving connective tissue.

How to Eat Bone Broth

    • Drink it straight up. Put it in your to go cup and drink it on the way to work.

Homemade Bone Broth
Instructions
  1. 1.If you are using raw bones, improves flavour to roast them in the oven first. 2. Cover the carcass with filtered water. 3. Add the cider vinegar. This helps to draw minerals and nutrients out of the bones. 4. Add the peppercorns, veg & seaweed if using. bring the broth to a boil. Once it has reached a vigorous boil, reduce to a simmer and simmer until done. 5. During the first few hours of simmering, you'll need to remove the impurities that float to the surface. A frothy/foamy layer will form once boiling starts and it can be easily scooped off with a big spoon. Throw this part away. 6. Simmer for up to 24hrs, 8-12 hrs is fine too! 7. You'll also need a large stock pot to cook the broth in and a strainer to remove the pieces when it is done.
