carrot, parsnip & ginger soup

carrot, parsnip & ginger soup

Soups are perfect for warming you up during the Autumn and Winter months. They are also a great way of boosting vegetable intake into any reluctant vegetable eater! This soup is very child-friendly with naturally sweet root vegetables. This soup is ideal if you are suffering from a cold or want to boost your immunity. The garlic and ginger are both anti-inflammatory and immune boosting.

the health boost tip

Carrots are exceptionally high in provitamin A carotenes, vitamin K, biotin and fibre. Carrots also promote good vision, especially night vision. In fact, beta-carotenes provide protection against macular degeneration and the development of cataracts.

Garlic and ginger are both anti-inflammatory and are great to include in your diet if you have a cold or need an immune boost.
