Sweet Potato Soup

February 17, 2017

I love making this soup with bone broth, with all of its healing properties; it’s rich in minerals to support the immune system, and contains collagen to reduce inflammation and repair the gut. Sweet potatoes are full of vitamin A and fibre. Vitamin A helps maintain healthy vision & neurological function. Wow, all of that in one delicious bowl of soup!
