Antioxidant Packed Soup

I found a recipe for “Fat flushing” soup from the following pin.

Flush-Fat-Soup-Recipe

The recipe for this soup is fantastic for your health!  Personally, I’m not too concerned with “fat flushing”, but I am ALWAYS concerned with cleansing the body and keeping toxins at bay which this soup is fantastic for.  I made a few changes here and there to the recipe.  Some to make it include whole foods rather than canned or boxed, and some just because I didn’t have the original recipes ingredients on hand, so I substituted.

Due to the amazingly healthy ingredients in this soup, it has the following health benefits.

  • helps promote healthy intestine function
  • packed with antioxidants
  • packed with fiber
  • cancer fighting
  • boosts immunity
  • lowers cholesterol
  • reduces inflammation
  • helps control blood pressure
  • good for the eyes, urinary tract, prostate, heart, nervous system, and brain function…phew!

and on and on it goes!  I call this soup a power soup for a reason!  The best part is that it tastes amazing and because of the high level of fiber, it’s quite filling!  Oh wait, maybe that’s not the best part…I forgot to mention that this is a slow cooker recipe, so it’s ridiculously EASY!!!
