Like smoothies and green juices, soups are a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into one meal!
This particular Broccoli and Butternut Squash Soup is especially dense with vitamins and minerals. It’s high in potassium, is loaded with vitamin A, and includes half your daily dose of vitamin c.
Its also a great source of fiber and sulforaphane, the compound found in cruciferous vegetables that helps promote detoxification.
