Grass Fed Beef Vegetable Soup – Gluten Free

 

This grass fed beef and vegetable (gluten free) soup is delicious.  It is great for cold weather cooking and provides a high density of nutrients to Calories.  Contrary to popular belief, grass fed beef is an excellent source of protein and of the healthy fats – omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E, A, and beta carotene.  Beef is also a great source of CoQ10, carnitine, and CLA.  CoQ10 is a vital nutrient for the production of energy by the body.  Carnitine and CLA help your body metabolize fat.  Without them maintaining a healthy weight becomes extremely challenging.  The vegetable mix in this recipe provides an good source of B-vitamins, soluble fiber (necessary for supporting the growth of  healthy intestinal bacteria), and the minerals potassium and magnesium.
