Quick Healthy Soups

Lately I have been making soups that begin with olive oil, saute red bell peppers, add kale, reconstituted shitake mushrooms and season with tumeric and other curry spices. Pour in spring water and simmer. Any variation of this will do as long as the components of hot and sweet peppers, dark leafy greens, and mushrooms are there along with the spices mentioned.

Health benefits of homemade soup may include stress reduction, ease of digestion, weight loss, detoxification, anti inflammatory properties, cold symptom relief, increased circulation, absorption of minererals, warming energy, and boosting vitamin C. Vegetables rich in vitamin C are in the soup - all darl leafy greens such as kale, and peppers!
