Soup for Eye Health
When it comes to eye health, it is essential that you get plenty of carotenoids in your daily diet—lutein and zeaxanthin in particular.
Carotenoids, primarily found in fresh fruits and vegetables, are associated with a lower incidence of not only eye disease and macular degeneration, but cardiovascular problems as well.
This soup is chock full of the carotenoids you need to protect your eyes and your heart. Enjoy!
(Makes 5 servings)
5 cups low sodium chicken stock
1 lb. fresh broccoli, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 Tbsp. curry powder to taste (optional)
Black pepper to taste
In a large pot, bring the stock to a boil over medium heat. Add the broccoli, onion, and garlic, and simmer until soft, about 30 minutes. Purée the soup in a food processor or blender, return to the pot, and add the lemon juice and pepper. For an extra kick, add the curry powder right before you purée the soup.
