Heart Healthy Soup

Here is an easy way to love your heart with a delicious soup that is packed with the powerful antioxidant and beta carotene. Vegetables of a deep orange hue are a wonderful source of this important nutrient.

Beta carotene is known for reducing the risk of heart disease, strengthening the immune system, relieving respiratory problems, preventing cancer, improving skin health and improving vision.

The naturally sweet taste of these delicious vegetables is deeply satisfying and also helps to reduce sugar cravings.
