This gloomy rainy LA weather put us in the mood for a delicious vegan Roasted Sweet Potato & Carrot soup.
Carrots are packed with amazing nutritional properties, particularly Vitamin A which helps prevent signs of premature aging, acne, dry and patchy skin, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Carrots also contain antioxidants to help fight sun damage, the #1 cause of wrinkling and sagging. On top of that, carrots assist with liver functioning and digestion to remove toxins that contribute to unhealthy-looking skin.
Enjoy this vitamin packed comforting recipe! Caution: glowing skin may occur :-)
