By Hailey Welch for The Beet

New resolutions are easy to make, but staying on top of your goals is most important. In this upcoming year, if you want to be and feel your healthiest, eat more whole, natural foods that are loaded with health benefits, like this soup!

This recipe of the day, Puréed Carrot and Ginger Soup is inspired by starting fresh for the new year. This soup is low in calories, nutrient-dense, full of fiber, and tastes delicious. The ingredients list is short and calls for healthier swaps like olive oil instead of butter and low-sodium vegetable stock instead of chick stock. The two main ingredients, carrots and ginger are loaded with health benefits and are the perfect combination of sweet and zesty.
