This one is the nourishment soup of the moment. I absolutely love eating it, not only because it tastes so good, but because I can feel the benefit to my body
I love it straight from the pressure cooker and if I want to pump up the protein, I’ll add some chicken or creamy rajma beans.
What’s good about it:
Basically everything ! the health benefits from following a diet that has a daily intake of vegetables include weight loss; and reduced risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and cancer. These veggies act like pre-biotic in the digestive system that help to stimulate the favorable growth and activity of the good probiotic bacteria. Make a good quantity and eat as much as you want any time of the day !
