Delicious Creamy Carrot & Cashew Soup Recipe!

This simple soup gets its creaminess from unsaturated fat-rich cashews. It takes very little time to make, offers fantastic health benefits, and provides satiety which will help with weight loss. Plus it’s a perfect soup for the fall and winter weather.

Carrots are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants. The main function of all types of vitamin K is to activate proteins that serve importantΒ roles in blood clotting, heart health and bone health. Because vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, it’s much better absorbed when eaten with dietary fat, which the cashews provide.

Carrots are a weight-loss-friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health. They also have a number of other health benefits.

Cashews Are Rich in Heart-Healthy Fatty Acids. Cashews contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, including oleic and palmitoleic acids. These are essential fatty acids that have been associated with lower levels of unhealthy LDL cholesterol and higher levels of healthy HDL cholesterol.
