Super green soup 

 

Dark green leafy veg are rich in flavonoids and carotenoids and pack an antioxidant-rich punch. Antioxidants may help to counter inflammation in the body and encourage cells to regenerate, which helps keep us looking and feeling younger for longer! Enjoy as a filling lunch or serve smaller portions as starters.
