Roasted Vegetable Soup

I love roasted vegetables. I love soup. Hence, I decided to combine the two to make this absolutely DELICIOUS roasted vegetable soup! YUM!

Thanks so all the awesome veggies in this, it has tons of health benefits!

  • The carrots provide a whole bunch of beta carotene which is converted to Vitamin A in the liver.  This nutrient provides excellent health benefits for the eyes.  Carrots can help improve vision and protect against macular degeneration.
  • The tomatoes in this soup are heart healthy!  Their potassium and vitamin B content help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels which aids in preventing strokes and heart attacks.
  • Zucchini is high in manganese.  Manganese helps the body metabolize protein and carbohydrates, aids in the production of sex hormones, and catalyzes the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol.
  • Red peppers are stocked full of vitamin C.  Vitamin C is excellent for the immune system, and it also is great for aiding in iron absorption.
  • Onions contain chromium, which assists in regulating blood sugar levels.
  • Lastly, every single vegetable in this soup is great for preventing cancer, as they all contain antioxidants and anti-cancer properties.

All of these health benefits in each spoonful of the yumminess that is this soup โ€“ AWESOME!
