Nourishing, flu beating soup

Updated: Feb 14, 2021

Sprouted Mung beans, fragrantly spiced coconut broth, vegetables & herbs, tofu.

A bowl of goodness

Sprouted beans reduce levels of phytic acid, anti-nutrients that reduce the absorption of minerals. Turmeric & ginger reduce pain levels, becoming more readily absorbed with coconut milk & black pepper. Vitamin C from the lemon increases the absorption of iron from the coriander. Brown rice, which is high in fibre, aids gut health. Tofu is easy to eat and high in protein.
