Coconut Broccoli Butternut Squash Soup


Fall is here and I am so excited for all the veggies of the season. One of my favorite is butternut squash. The bright color tells you that it is rich in carotenoids which are anti-oxidants. These nutrients will help you fight inflammation and give you vitamin A your body needs to function at its optimal potential. Not sure how you’ll like it? Try this yummy soup recipe that will make it taste great.
