Carrot And Potato Soup


This carrot potato soup is very delicious and healthy.In this soup I use coconut oil.The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer, while helping to improve dental quality and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.In this soup I also use Kokum/Garcinia indica fruit petal that's too is very healthy. Ayurvedic physicians have long used kokum to treat sores, prevent infection, improve digestion, alleviate diarrhea and constipation, lessen arthritis pain, cure ear infections and heal stomach ulcers, states “Healing Spices.” Recent studies shown it is also beneficial for weight loss. This soup is loaded with health benefit and I am sure you will love the delicious taste of this carrot and potato soup  too.
