Raw Vegan Sweet Potato Soup
The Amazing Sweet Potato
Sweet potatoes are often served with lots of sugar, butter and marshmallows added. That ruins the nutritional value of this lovely tuber. They are naturally high in Vitamins A, B6 and C, Manganese, Potassium,area great source of fiber and surprisingly even protein. One cup of sweet potatoes contains 4 grams of protein. This tuber also provides a source of Potassium, Copper, Iron, Riboflavin and more essential minerals.
Sweet potatoes score a magnificent 65 out of 100 on the Nutrient Balance Indicator and contain very high anti-inflammatory properties. They have a low glycemic load and have only 13 grams of sugar per cup.
Combining these incredible healthful qualities with other great foods such as celery and carrot juice then keeping them raw makes for a powerful dietary healing recipe. Enjoy this easy to make soup which can be heated if desired. Just remember to keep the temperature below 117 degrees (Fahrenheit) to keep those enzymes alive.
