Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This Carrot Lentil Soup is packed with healthy nutrients and perfect for a cozy night in. Red lentils are a great protein source, especially for vegetarians - 1 cup is almost 40% of your daily intake. They are also very low in fat and have a good dose of iron and B vitamins. The ginger in Daily Turmeric Tonic also adds tons of benefits. Not only is it anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants, it can help with things like nausea, muscle soreness, and even regulating blood glucose.
