5-Minute Power Greens Soup

Loaded with dark leafy greens, this soup packs a good dose of vitamins K and A. This recipe supplies healthy fats from the avocado, pumpkin seeds, and coconut oil. Healthy fats are critical to a healthy metabolism because in addition to boosting the absorption of certain vitamins, they also help to keep the blood sugar and hunger hormones in check — which means you'll be satisfied for longer.

Rich sources of vitamin C, potassium, fiber, iron, calcium, and even protein, this soup also delivers a good dose of antioxidants. Best news: this recipe takes about 5 minutes to make.
