BROCCOLI AND ZUCCHINI SOUP WITH B12

This broccoli and zucchini soup is a must to try during January to help us detox from the excess of December. It is a great comfort for our body when it needs nutrient-rich foods right after the holidays.

I have to confess that I slipped several times during the holidays eating chips, one or two or more dark chocolates, red and white wine… I know I slipped, but my slips never included animal products. I am 100% vegan with a PLANT based diet. My body loves my vegan diet, but there are a million opinions out there about whether this kind of food is right or not and whether you are getting all the nutrients you need or might be about to faint for lack of vitamin B12.

BROCCOLI AND ZUCCHINI SOUP

Well, I’m not a doctor or anything like that, but I do love reading and researching about nutrition. I can honestly say that yes, as vegans we do need to supplement with vitamin B12…but, this is also the case for many people that don’t follow a vegan diet. As a general population, we are lacking vitamin B12 so this soup is great for everyone.

It’s satisfying, super nutritious and easy to make. This is a bowl of great soup for everyone because it helps us eat nutrient dense food, feel better and eat a delicious meal.

This broccoli and zucchini soup with vitamin B12 is made with nutritional yeast which can be used in many other recipes and adds a little bit of a cheesy flavor to the dishes. If you can’t find it don’t worry the soup will still taste amazing. Still, try to find it if you want an extra boost of nutrition.
