Broccoli and Brazil nuts and Artichoke soup

Soup is such a comfort food especially in a place like Melbourne, Australia where the weather has four seasons in a day and it’s most of the time cold and chilling.

I like soup also because it increases my fluid intake and keep body hydrated and give the body nutrients it needs. Here is another soup recipe that I love and want to share with the world!

Broccoli is one of cruciferous vegetables family. It contains high vitamin K, Bs, C and magnesium.

Broccoli has wide range of health benefits. It’s known to help regulate hormone level in our body by eliminating accessible estrogen and balance hormone.

Artichokes contain high in vitamin C, magnesium and potassium. It’s also known to help regulate blood pressure because of its high level of potassium, a mineral that plays a major role in the regulation of blood pressure and counteracts the negative effects of excessive sodium consumption through eNOS, an enzyme that helps blood vessels widen.

Brazil nuts are one of tree nuts family. Brazil is one of the most nutrient-dense food. It contains 106% magnesium, 104% phosphorus, 54% B1 and calcium. It also contains high essential fatty acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6. Fatty acids is the building bock of every single cell in our body except red blood cell and brain cell.
