Rawmazing Race: Raw Carrot & Ginger Soup in Amsterdam

Ok, so I know this looks like a regular soup, but believe me, it is raw. Since Holland is responsible for much of the carrots we eat today, I thought Amsterdam would be a good stop for tonight's plate hopping adventure. I juiced some carrots,then added half an avocado and some ginger and whizzed it up with my barmix. I added the black sesame seeds for a bit of contrast, but some fresh parsley or dill would probably have gone with it really well too. It was so creamy! I'll probably add this to the rotation, since Mr Bean thought it was pretty good too from the taste he had. Since carrots are a super food and their health benefits would probably fill a book, I'll keep it short. Carrots are loaded with vitamins A,C,D,E,K, B1, and B6, besides a heap of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium (to name a few). They are also alkaline, and  high in phytonutrients, which have amazing healing properties in the body. Add to the soup the healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats from the avocado that carry fat soluble vitamins such as E and K, and I feel pretty darn good about tonight's dinner! But even if you aren't into all the nutrition of it, just try it cos it's yummy!
