Sweet Potato Vegetable Soup

This soup is known to flush the fat out of your system. Each ingredient in this soup has its own unique qualities that benefit your body. They restore acid-alkaline and sodium-potassium balance to the body’s organs and glands. When I first saw this soup, I thought it was questionable and might not taste very good but i was completely wrong! It tastes delicious!! I dare you to try it!

  3. Cook on low in a slow cooker or cover and simmer in a pan over the stove stirring every 15 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
