Well hello again! It’s almost back to normal here at paleOMG. Did you miss me?! I missed you. I didn’t really know how much my website meant to me until I couldn’t use it anymore, and I was crying on the floor of my room in frustration. Stupid technology. Why does it have to be so weird. And confusing. But work with me, I promise you the website will be back to normal rants and recipes by next week. Because I love you. No I love you more!

So I talked about this on my facebook page a little while back. Have you seen the show ‘Catfish’? I’m obsessed. I’ll give you the run down if you haven’t seen it. So this guy met this girl on the internet, fell in love with her, then when he finally met her, you guessed it, it wasn’t her. So he made a documentary of it THEN mtv was smart enough to pick it up and he started doing the same thing for other people. So he brings two people together who have met on the internet to see if it was all a lie. Most of the episodes I’ve seen prove that people love to lie on the internet. What’s that about? I haven’t lied once on this thing. Well, maybe I didn’t tell you about a chocolate eating session, but that’s none of your business. Now my  acne issues, that’s definitely your business.

Anywho, it’s one of those shows that’s like watching a train wreck. You can’t look away. And why would you want to? Watching people meet random people they fell in love with via written words is pretty disgustingly fantastic. Ok, disgusting is the wrong word. I could see why though. I’ve dipped my toe into online dating before. I’ve seen what people put on the internet. And really, all people talk about is their positives. You know, the ‘I make 6 digits a year’, the ‘I’m looking for the girl next door because I’m a romantic at heart’, the ‘I’m a very driven person who is looking for an independent woman.’ They never put on there ‘I’m a drunk that tends to only sleep with women while intoxicated. Oh, and I have commitment issues.’ That just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Online dating is weird. I gave it up. I don’t like using up my time with someone I know nothing about. I like friends more. Why would I go on an awkward date with someone while I could be watching a Twilight movie, drinking wine, and making paleo cookies? Ugh, I’m dumb. I wish I would have never typed that sentence. But the delete button is too far away.

I ate duck last night. Duck is bloody amazing. I wish I could eat duck every other day. Every day would just be too much. Oh and I’m eating beef sticks for breakfast. This week is weird.

Simple Ginger Carrot Soup

4.9 from 16 reviews

  • Yield: 3-4 1x


  • 23 cups chopped carrots (I used baby carrots)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 (14oz) can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced (the more, the better)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place a saucepan over medium heat, add in your coconut oil, garlic and onion. Cook up onions are translucent.
  2. Then add in your carrots with broth and coconut milk along with ginger and a bit of salt and pepper.
  3. Cook until carrots are soft, about 12-15 minutes.
  4. Once carrots are soft, use an immersion blender to mix until soup is smooth and creamy. If you don’t have an immersion blender, add it to your food processor, like I did.
  5. Top with more fresh ginger and enjoy. I added some shredded chicken to mine and it was AWESOME.

    I made this soup for the family last night and I must say, it was absolutely amazing. I didn’t really have a vegetable broth so I subbed in my homemade chicken broth. Even my 3 year old was licking her bowl. Well done, I look forward to trying more of your yummy recipes.

    I have made this soup twice now and both my husband and I very much enjoy it. I added a whole butternut squash to mine and it makes it even better.

    Thanks for the great recipe.

    OMG. A-FUCKING-MAZING. like, i can’t even tell you how good it was without using curse words. lunch and dinner for 2 for around $5 and it took about 30 minutes including prep time because i chop slow. no one likes eating my blood. weirdos.my only addition would be some turmeric just because i love that spice and it ends up in everything. it’s like eating warm. that’s what warm would taste like.

    Last summer while my daughter and I were vacationing on Cape Cod, she had a Ginger Carrot soup at a restaurant that we forgot the name of but that she raved about for months!! She’s looked everywhere for the recipe and found a few tried them but wasn’t impressed, at all. Tonight, I found your recipe and make it for her. We just about started weeping for JOY!!!! It is SO good! Wow!!! Thank you so much! <3

    My father in law was visiting, and requested i make a carrot soup for him after his long flight. I made this soup for my non paleo husband and father in law and they LOVED IT. I also fell in love with it, and plan to make it again this week!

    Question: any idea approximately how many inches of ginger equals 3T minced?

    Also, thanks for not using your readers’ email addresses to try to sell us shit all the time. Keep up the good work!

    Awesome. Especially with a little squirt of sriracha on top!

  8. Robin says:

    I love this recipe! Sometimes I add curry powder and then garnish with fresh cilantro at the end, and that is wonderful as well. Just a lovely, lovely soup that is so easy to make and makes you feel so good. Thank you!

    This soup hit the spot today, I have been home with the flu and carrots were pretty much the last thing I had in my Fridge.
