Boost Your Self-Esteem and Confidence with a Solar Plexus Chakra Recipe — Ginger Carrot Turmeric Soup

Warm soup is good for the soul, but more specifically, it can help balance your Chakras. By satisfying and nurturing our Solar Plexus, also known as the Navel Chakra, with a dish such as this Ginger Carrot Turmeric Soup, we help boost self-esteem and confidence, and bring back balance to digestion. The preparation of this soup involves a blender, which making the carrots into a lighter and easier to digest, by introducing air, and bringing the unrefined carrot into an elegant, better version of itself. This sort of metaphor is an important part of “spiritual power” as we take our cooking experiences as lessons on how we better our soul, and constantly yearn for improvement.

The serendipitous aspect of this soup is that it is exceptionally healthy, with ginger and turmeric being rising stars in the health food world. And, most importantly, it is delicious. Make this for yourself, or for people you care about and bring healing and happiness to others — one of the most important aspects of cooking.
