Avocados are an excellent source of healthy omega 3 fats and a wide range of phytonutrients. The avocado is likely to provide you with health benefits in the areas of blood sugar control, insulin regulation, satiety and weight management, and decreased overall risk of unwanted inflammation. I like simple recipes that don’t take much time or effort, and this recipe is super-fast and easy in addition to being incredibly nutritious! The collagen peptides provide a clean source of amino acids which complement this fiber rich and nutrient-packed summer soup.
