High in fiber and especially in one of great interest for our intestines, our second brain, thanks to the resistant starch of the sweet potato, which once cooked and rested for 24 hours, becomes usable fiber for our microbiota, responsible for generating our serotonin, responsible for our happiness and mood, among many other things ...
Creamy and with an intense orange color due to its contribution in beta-carotene, provided by the same sweet potato, carrot and turmeric, necessary for the care of our immune system, liver, skin and mucous membranes.
It also contains a good base of alkalizing vegetables thanks to the broth, and celery (diuretic and ally in weight loss diets), onion (antiseptic and anti-infective), and kale leaves (rich in calcium and vegetable protein).
A vegetable delicacy, with an exotic touch thanks to the coconut, good for us and our intestinal friendly bacteria, happy digestion!
