Soups

Celery-Turnip cream soup (without the cream)

February 5, 2013

Cream soups are really quick and easy to make which is great for a busy mom like me 🙂 This is what I made after my colon hydrotherapy session.

Some of the health benefits of celery:

  • strengthens immune system due to the high amount of Vitamin C
  • diuretic, which comes from its balance of sodium and potassium which help to flush out excess fluid from the body
  • celery contains coumarins, which has been shown to be effective in the prevention of cancer
  • anti-inflammatory properties
  • the pthalides in celery may lower cholesterol by increasing bile acid secretion
  • the calcium, magnesium and potassium content helps regulate blood pressure
