Bug busting soup

2 small sweet potatoes – peeled and sliced

1 beetroot (I used yellow) – peeled and sliced

Half a bag of kale

2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes

1 pint of water

1 teaspoon seaweed salt

1 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 drops black pepper essential oil

2 drops basil essential oil

Pop all in a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 mins and cool then blitz in a food processor.

Turmeric is a anti-inflammatory.

Beetroot have vit C and B vitamins (for energy)

Sweet potato are high in vitamin C

Kale rocks the C-vit, also has some B.

Black pepper and basil essential oils are great as they have a higher potency than the ground dried variety. Black pepper is a great anti-oxidant and basil is calming; stress is really bad for the immune system.
