We love our greens, especially the cruciferous kind, we rave about cruciferous veggies (kale particularly) in their very own blog describing their extraordinary anti-inflammatory benefits (click here to investigate).

This soup given to us by the beautiful Phillipa from Ayurveda Joy that incorporates all kinds of Spring greens, is a delicious, nutritious staple in our world during Spring and we recommend you make it one of yours too. The flavours from the spices are to die or and have some pretty extraordinary health benefits for themselves, combine all of these ingredients together and this soup is sure to boost the immune system and nourish you through the tumultuous ups, and downs, and arounds, and back, that Spring and its beautiful sprouting glory has to offer.
