Anti-Nausea Coconut Carrot Ginger Soup

‘Tis the season for warming soups and stews! I actually created this recipe 2 years ago when my sister first found out she was preggers and was having a wee bit of a hard time getting some vegetables down and I was on a mission to help. I figured, might as well create a veggie soup that also has some anti-nausea properties like ginger! I figured now was a good time to post it given all of last weeks pregnancy posts about botanical medicine for pregnancy and nutrition for pregnancy and because the weather is getting cooler again so for all of those who don’t want to bring raw veggies in their lunch anymore this is the soup for you!
