So Cam has been cooking me some things lately :p and this little soup came out very tasty and requires minimal ingredients!
Carrots are packed with a plethora of vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin C, and phytochemicals, including carotenoids, hydroxycinnamic acids, and anthocyanins. Carotenoids are responsible for the orange, red, and yellow pigments in fruits and vegetables, a main source of vitamin A, protective against some cancers and heart disease, and promotes eye health. Consumption of hydroxycinnamic acids have been shown to decrease cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. Anthocyanins also have anti-cancer properties.
