There's no doubt about it, we could all do with a few light and fresh recipes at this time of the year, whether it's because of the hot weather or due to a few too many indulgences over the Christmas break. For me, it's both :)
It's that time of year when every second person you talk to is sniffling and complaining about their awful cold, while your standing there thinking - keep your distance people I don't want to get sick! Well here's a soup recipe that is so nourishing you can almost feel it instantly boosting your immune system.
Banana: High source of potassium and fibre. Also contains serotonin for a happiness effect and provides pre-biotics to feed healthy gut bacteria.
Coconut cream: Fantastic source of lauric acid which is an important medium-chain fatty acid and is metabolised more efficiently in than saturated fats, giving us an excellent boost of energy. Also has great anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
Flaxseeds: Extremely superior source of omega-3 fatty acids and helps to keep the bowels regular.
Maca: Helps to energise and revitalise the body.
