Why should you try this Vegan Protein Soup?

Reason # 1: You’ll feel satisfied for longer = weight control. Because of the high fiber content, you’ll feel satisfied longer which keeps you from eating more and helps you control your weight.

Reason # 2: An excellent alternative source of protein for vegan diet

Reason # 3: It’s rich in antioxidants, iron, and potassium This soup is an excellent source of vitamin A, potassium, and iron. Vitamin A is an essential antioxidant for our cells and helps protect us from oxidative stress and consequently from premature aging. Potassium is very supportive for our muscle and skin tissues. Iron is an essential mineral for the production of red blood cells (hemoglobin). These nutritional components support the regeneration processes in our body and help protect us from weakening.

Reason # 4: It strengthens Qi (=Chi, available energy), Yang (metabolic processes), Blood, and Yin (regenerative processes) In Traditional Chines Medicine (TCM) you can support your body through the integration of particular foods in your diet. The components included in this soup create the perfect balance to both help the body and to improve the ability to absorb nourishment giving our tissues, muscles, organs the necessary nutritional components. This keeps the skin glowing and you looking young. The beans have a positive influence on Yin, which is responsible for repairing and maintaining proper processes in the body.  Garlic, Cayenne Pepper, and Rosemary boost the metabolic processes, which are important for healthy, balanced weight. Carrots help to regulate the available energy, Qi, which is crucial for life stability.
