When the weather cools down, often the health consciousness of what we eat falters. But staying warm with food doesn’t have to be fried chicken or hot chips.

Soups are a great option to sooth the chill and are a perfect mood-boosting food during the colder months.  So, it’s always nice to have a delicious and quick soup recipe on hand to whizz up in your blender for dinner and take to work!

This Healthy Broccoli Soup is creamy, yummy and has an added bonus of being loaded with green nutrients. Broccoli is one of nature’s most nutrient-dense vegetables, packed with fibre, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which strengthen the immune system during flu season.
