Most everyone loves a steaming bowl of hot soup and this particular recipe is a a gold medal winner because eating broccoli has never tasted so delicious, nor has it been so easy. The best part? This Cream of Broccoli soup contains two star super foods: avocados and broccoli.
Broccoli is a veggie that has a powerful impact in its health benefits. This bright green veggie is high in potassium, vitamin k, folate and B-6. In fact, broccoli contains as much calcium than milk and it is more bio-available to the cells than milk. It is a powerful cancer fighter due to its abundance of cancer warriors called sulphorophane and Indole-3-carbinol. Broccoli is also high in fiber which promotes digestive health and weight loss.
This creamy soup also contains the fruit avocado which is dense in healthy fat and fiber. It is the avocado that gives this soup its decadent creaminess. Avocados contain a rare form of sugar called mannoheptulose that prevents fat storage & lowers fat-storing insulin = weight loss.
