Before you get scared off by the idea of a carrot soup, let me assure you this recipe is INCREDIBLE. In fact, it is one of my favorite soup recipes. It is so incredible, that if I were to open my own restaurant, I would serve this soup in the spring and summer time. Best part about this Carrot Ginger Soup Recipe is… you don’t even have to cook it!
I found this recipe while doing the Reboot Plan from Reboot with Joe. For those unfamiliar with Joe Cross, he did a Documentary called Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. Fat Sick and Nearly Dead is about Joe’s 60 day journey on a juice fast. The results were astounding and the documentary is extremely informative. If you haven’t seen the documentary, I highly recommend it. It really has changed my way of thinking about food. Joe Cross developed a website called Reboot with Joe as a resource for others for support, community, media, tools, and encouragement for health and wellness. It is an incredible resource full of tasty, nutrituous recipes and information. You can tell by my blog that I have not adapted the plant based diet. But I have incorporated healthier recipes in my day to day life and increased my consumption of fruits and vegetables. I also have incorporated juices and smoothies in my daily diet and have grown to love them.
Joe’s Rebooting is a time period of committing to a planned diet consisting of only fruits and vegetables to give your body a hydro boost of vitamins and nutrients that your body needs. Joe has specific Reboot Plans based on your dedication and longevity commitment. Each Reboot Plan consists of a grocery list, recipes, and a schedule. I have done the 10 Day Reboot Plan multiple times and highly suggest it. It has helped me loose a couple of those unwanted pounds. My skin and hair looked amazing, my energy increased, and I felt great. I personally know several people who have done the reboot and were off medicine, their health dramatically changed for the good, and they lost weight. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. Check it out for yourself. It certainly won’t hurt you!
*Carrots are a wonderful source for vitamin A. They also contains vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, folate, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, vitamin E and zinc.
*Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3s.
Therefore ladies and gentleman, this soup does a body good!!!
You will have to juice the carrots to get the fresh juice. I highly recommend the Breville if you are looking for a juicer. I have been juicing regularly for 3 years now and my Breville Juice Fountain Plus is still juicing beautifully!
