Vitamin Packed Blood Cleansing Spinach and Veg Soup

Submitted by: UZUME13
Vitamin Packed Blood Cleansing Spinach and Veg Soup

Introduction

Easy to make and very tasty soup. Serve with chunky, warm bread.

If it wasn't enough that this soup is delicious, chillis and spinach both have blood pressure reducing properties. Spinach is up in the top 5 of the healthiest veggies to eat and one of the few which are better for you when boiled (as are carrots) making them perfect soup veg! It is also reported that there are Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Cancer Benefits from Spinach Phytonutrients.

Give it a try! You can't lose :-)
