High in Vitamin C
Parsnips are good source of vitamin C, containing about 28% of our recommended daily intake in ½ cup of raw parsnips. Research has shown that vitamin C helps to boost your immune system and support more infection-fighting white blood cells.
Parsnips are a good source of fiber with approximately 3 to 5 grams of fiber per serving. Fiber is vital for a healthy gut because it moves food along the digestive tract and improves bowel health.
Along with vitamin C, parsnips are rich in potassium, a mineral that helps your heart function, and can also assist in balancing your blood pressure.
Spicy Lentil and Parsnip Soup
Its hard to believe that our season has come to an end. I must say I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to provide my family with fresh, organic food throughout this challenging time. I have been enjoying the time at home with my little ones, making new meals and enjoying the quite ( not that its quite inside my home). During this season, we often look for hearty meals and this last recipe is going to challenge your culinary skills and wow all of your zoom friends. Like any good cooking show we must leave the best for last, and I have a feeling we all may have a little extra time on our hands? No matter where you are or what you are doing during time, I hope you can enjoy this delicious soup in good health, until we meet again.
