Pumpkin Soup with Spiced Pepitas

Creamy & Delicious Pumpkin Soup

Filling root vegetables, creamy coconut milk and a medley of warming winter spices make for one delicious bowl of pumpkin soup. And to really take it over the top, sprinkling on spiced pepitas that have been toasted to salty perfection…mhmm. Yes, please.

I love pairing my pumpkin soup with a slice (or two!) of almond flour bread for some added protein. You could also serve it with a topping of my crunchy roasted chickpeas to boost up both protein and fibre.

Why Pumpkin Is Your Skin’s BFF

HIGH IN BETA-CAROTENE

  • Converted to vitamin A in the body
  • Minimizes acne and scarring
  • Promotes cell turnover
  • Reduces oil production
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Tightens the skin
  • Improves uneven pigmentation
  • Protects the skin from harmful UV rays

ABUNDANT IN ANTIOXIDANTS

  • Antioxidants like beta-carotene, vitamin C, Vitamin E, lutein and zeaxanthin.
  • Combat free radicals in the body that promote disease, aging and acne.
  • Help support liver function

IMPROVES DIGESTION

  • Good source of fibre for improved digestion
  • 60% of the fibre in pumpkin is soluble fibre (feeds the good bacteria in your gut)
  • The other 40% of the fibre is insoluble fibre (helps push food through your GI tract and adds bulk to your stool to ease constipation)

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
