Sweet Potato Carrot Coconut Soup


Mmmmmmmm… nothing is better than a warm comforting bowl of Sweet Potato Carrot Coconut Soup ☺️ Its just like drinking “liquid gold”. This nourishing soup has a delicate carrot and sweet potato flavour combined with the perfect balance of spices. It also has a wonderfully creamy, silky smooth texture which makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The best thing about this soup is that it is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free and diabetic friendly!
Sweet potato is considered to be a diabetic superfood. It has been shown to stabilise blood-sugar levels by lowering insulin resistance. Sweet potato is high in fiber and vitamins. When boiled, they are a low glycemic index (GI) food, meaning they won’t spike your blood sugar as much as roasted sweet potatoes 👍
Today is World Diabetes Day and I’ve teamed up with the Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC), to create some delicious diabetic friendly recipes. Diabetes is a major public health problem in the MENA region and has been significantly growing. It is extremely important to eat healthy and maintain regular exercise to help manage diabetes. The 11th edition of the WALK takes place on Friday 17th November 2017 at Abu Dhabi’s iconic sporting venue, Yas Marina Circuit. Join me and thousands of others on this great cause! You can sign up and buy tickets at www.walkon.ae. See you at Yas Marina Circuit! ❤️
