  1. Did you know ginger is good for sea sickness? I read that recently. If I ever go on a cruise I will eat this soup before and after. Before to combat sea sickness and after to lose weight!

  2. There is quite a lot of goodness going into your soup here! Reading the title, I thought it was going to be a very basic (and maybe a bit bland) one but reading the ingredients I know it sure isn't. And wow isn't the colour beautiful?Really like the first photo with the contrast between orange and green. 🙂
