Nourishment Notes


Ginger has long been used as a remedy to fight against nausea. Gingerol, the bioactive ingredient in ginger, may also be beneficial as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.


Well-cooked vegetables, such as carrots, are mild in flavor and odor and typically tolerated with nausea.

Sweet Potatoes

Potatoes, in most forms, are often well tolerated when nauseous due to their low odor and mild flavor.

Fatigue Buster

  • Freeze Leftovers

    Soup can be frozen for up to 3 months and used on days when energy is too low to cook.

  • Reduce Prep Time

    Fresh ginger can be replaced with tubed ginger to reduce prep time.
