Soups: Pumpkin and White Bean Soup with Sage
Pumpkins are not only alkaline, but also very low in calories which make them an ideal vegetable for anybody who watches its weight. Moreover, pumpkins are rich in potassium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, iron as well as beta-carotene (antioxidant), which are really good at neutralizing free radicals.
Sweet potatoes are some of the most nutritious vegetables, providing us with vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, potassium and iron. Moreover, sweet potatoes also contain unique proteins with antioxidant effects.
