Broccoli & Sweet Potato Soup….YUM!!

I LOVE SWEET POTATO!!!

Broccoli is full of calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, vit B3 & B5…plus vit C & folic acid – all which are antioxidants, anticancer, antiviral, support the liver to detox & is a great source of fibre to aid intestinal cleaning. Sweet potato also has calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, folic acid & vit C….but also betacarotene & potassium. It can actually help to act like an expectorant & dissolve excess mucous or phlegm, whilst clearing sinuses – perfect for this time of year!!

So this soup is next on my “hit list”!!
