Today I’m sharing pumpkin sweet potato soup recipe. Everybody loves healthy pumpkin soup in the fall. It’s pumpkin season and it’s amazing how big they get. Lifting and rolling some of them is tough. Have you ever wondered how nutritious they are?

Nutrition facts

Pumpkins are rich in nutrients and contain vitamins A, C, B2, E, pottasium, cooper, manganese, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc and folate. Pumpkins are rich in beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant. Eating pumpkin will strengthen your immunity, lower cancer risk, prevent asthma and heart disease, and slow down aging. Your body turns beta-carotene into vitamin A.

Nitric oxide enzymes in pumpkin seeds dilate blood vessels, improve blood flow and prevent plaque buildup. Pumpkin seeds are one of the best natural sources of magnesium to help control blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, and regulate blood sugar. About half of the daily magnesium recommendation is in a small handful. The plant compounds found in pumpkin seeds and pulp help absorb glucose into the tissues and intestines, as well as balance liver glucose levels. In addition, the vitamins C and E and beta-carotene in pumpkin support eye health and slow aging. Pumpkins are also rich in zinc.

Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including vitamins A, C, B6, B3, manganese, copper, potassium, and pantothenic acid. Sweet potatoes have antioxidants, which may help protect against certain types of cancer. Consuming purple sweet potatoes may improve brain function.

Carrots are a good source of vitamins and minerals, such as biotin, potassium, and vitamins A (from beta carotene), K1, and B6.

Thyme adds instant flavor to cooking and also contains a variety of minerals and vitamins that promote good health. Thyme is full of vitamin C for immune support, potassium for healthy cells, and manganese for bone development and blood clotting.
