Carrot Ginger Soup
The bold touch of ginger in this soup gives it real personality. Ginger is especially helpful in easing digestion, which helps to relieve nausea, an upset stomach, and even motion sickness. The high carrot content helps you get nearly 300% of the daily requirement of vitamin A. All that for under 150 calories a serving! Health never tasted so good.
