I’m crazy about turmeric for it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties! Turmeric also promotes digestive health. YAY!

When you pair black pepper with turmeric, you increase your body’s absorption of the turmeric by 2,000%! WOWZA!

The tomatoes are full of lycopene, which gives them their vibrant red colour!  It’s also what makes them powerful anti-oxidants which fight free-radicals making tomatoes a wonderful anti-cancer food!

Here’s the recipefor this awesome anti-inflammatory & anti-cancer soup!
