You know that I am a big fan of oats. This grain has to be part of my day to day life, as it has so many incredible benefits when it comes to our health. Oats are part of complex carbohydrates which means that these type of carbohydrates are a slow release of energy and therefore keeps you full for much longer. Also, oats contain soluble fibre which helps reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels and promotes healthy gut bacteria.
This is such a simple recipe, packed with so many nutrients and fibre. Watercress is a great source of Vitamin C, A, K, B6 and minerals such as folate, calcium, iron and so much more. Reduce the food waste and try not to waste as much of the vegetable whilst making this soup, just challenge yourself and I guarantee you, you can do it. Enjoy and don’t forget to share your experience with me.
Aubergine is a great source of fibre, vitamins B1, B6 and potassium. This type of vegetable is high in minerals, such as copper, magnesium and manganese. Aubergine is rich in antioxidants and in recent years, a compound called nasunin was discovered in the skin of abuergine. Nasunin has been shown to protect the fatty membranes of cells within the nervous system and brain from chemical damage. Scientists believe that the long term consumption may offer some protection against degenerative mental disorders such as dementia. If you are not a fan of aubergine, maybe this soup will change your mind.
