This Carrot Ginger Soup was recently sent to me from a patient. Ginger is a popular ingredient in cooking, and especially in Asian and Indian cuisine. It has also been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes. Here are some key points about ginger:
- Ginger has long been used for culinary and medicinal purpose.
- Possible health benefits include reducing nausea, pain, and inflammation.
- Ginger can be used to make tea, chopped or crushed in curries and savory dishes, and dried or crystalized in sweets and confectionary [Source].
Carrots are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants. They also have a number of health benefits. They’re a weight-loss-friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health [Source].
