Every winter I discover a new soup that I make all the time and change it up until it becomes a delicious and totally nutritious meal for lunch or dinner. This winters soup would have to be this sweet potato and sweet corn chowder which is very satisfying and filling. I love using sweet potatoes in my cooking, not only are they delicious and extremely good for you, I would also confidently call them a super skinfood They are packed with vitamins C and A and those components play a major role in fighting off aging and skin degeneration. As a matter of fact, these veggies happen to be a major source of those components as one medium-sized sweet potato accounts for a 100% of our daily requirements of vitamin A and 47% of the daily recommended vitamin C. I also like to add Masons Mushroom Powder to my soups and just about everything as it’s a super-blend of nourishing medicinal mushrooms hand-picked to support immunity, gut health, hormonal function and the nervous system. Revered in ancient herbal traditions, these potent adaptogenic herbs boost vitality and encourage longevity.
