Cleansing Carrot Ginger Soup
This Carrot Ginger Soup is a guest favorite meal at Sanivan Holistic Retreat in the Catskills of New York. Almost all of the produce is grown in the Inn’s own organic gardens. Organic meals with fruits, juices, produce and cleansing tonics are a specialty. The inn invites you to enjoy this delicious warming soup during the cold winter months. Ginger is great for your digestive system, and the soup is nutritionally dense, low in calories and cleansing to the body.
