Carrot Ginger Soup

This week, I got sick. Again. I feel like this is a common trend these days. The best thing we can do for ourselves is provide the nutrients and care our bodies require to heal. This soup is full of ginger, which warms and soothes the throat and stomach. The carrots and sweet potato provide vibrant color and grounding energy while being gentle on the digestion. If you find yourself under the weather, give this soup a try.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
