Soup is a warm, cold weather delight. I particularly love it because it serves as an easy way to pack in tons of nutrients with a satisfying taste. Sometimes it’s just too cold out to depend on juice to get a high dose of nutrients, and soup is the perfect solution. This soup is a rich source of immune-boosting and health-promoting nutrients including vitamin C, energizing B vitamins, bone-healthy vitamin K and brain and heart-healthy folate.
