Today I posted this food pic on my IG stories. I don’t usually post a lot of food, but this soup is epic and I want to share this pure medicin kind of food with you!! I’m starting my yoga teacher journey within a week and that means I’m all over the books already, and not only yoga but everything around it too.
Ive always loved holistic and spiritual wellness and have spent several hours of reading about it in my life.
Iv´e had chakra healing in 2012 in downtown LA, I´ve done a lot of traditional Chinese medicine and when I fell pregnant with Anaïs in 2014 and wasn’t feeling good, I acidentally read about ayurveda and got hooked. I’m still hooked for life because it´s the only way to go if you wanna heal body and mind and have a sober look on life according to me. Ayurveda looks at all the aspects of life not just a single thing…
I love vino, I love croissants and fig marmalade. But when it comes to feel better through food and in life, I turn to Ayurveda.
It would be about one million words here if I should tell you all about it (I touched a little when I posted about my best pregnancy advice the other week) and I’m not a wellness blog……… (Or am I? maybe a little) sooooo, I’m just gonna say that food actually can heal our entire body, and it can also prevent us from becoming sick in both the mental and physical parts. This is good news you guys!
I dare to say many women have a bad emotional relation to food and through ayurveda that relation can heal. No diet, just food as medicin. Therefor (almost the end of this food blog post), here is the much requested recipe of delicious anti-inflammatory and healing ginger/carrot/turmeric soup and also for your much appreciated convenience, a list of the 13 most anti-inflammatory foods you can eat! yeah!
Now I’m off screen for the day, I’m gonna read a little Rachel Cusk before I pass out.

Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or saucepan. Add the fennel, carrots. Saute for 3 – 5 minutes until the veggies start to soften. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, salt, and pepper, and saute for a few more minutes.
Add the broth and coconut milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
