When you hear of “phytochemicals,” you may imagine some sort of powerful substances. In fact, “phyto” means “plant” in Greek, and “chemicals” are “chemical substances”. So it means “plant-derived chemical components.”
Polyphenols such as anthocyanins and catechins that are often recommended as nutrients, carotenoids such as beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein, and isoflavones contained in soybeans are chemicals produced by plants.
It has an antioxidant effect that protects cells by removing active oxygen that causes aging phenomena such as spots and wrinkles, arteriosclerosis, cancer and lifestyle-related diseases.
In the past, there was a soup recommended after surgery for cancer called “Harvard soup”, and even now I make and eat it often, but this was a phytochemicals soup.
Preparing the vegetables and making a soup are easy. Cut cabbage, onions, carrots, and pumpkin into 100-g servings per day, and simmer them in one liter of water. At first, boil so as not to let the steam escape on high heat, then boil for about 20 minutes on low heat.
Phytochemicals melt out to create a rich soup. When boiled, the absorption rate of phytochemicals increases!
You can eat the soup as it is and also use it as a base for various soups, such as miso soup or potage, and put it on your daily table. The soup itself tastes good, so you can use less salt or pepper.
The benefits of Phytochemicals Soup are:
● Prevention of cancer and after surgery ● Improves immunity ● For liver detoxification ● Anti-virus and anti-allergy to prevent hay fever and cold ● Improves blood circulation to prevent dementia ● Prevents obesity, constipation and improves diarrhea.
According to the magazine “Iine! いいね！” published by Crayonhouse in March, the regular delivery of a vegetable soup set was added to the Crayonhouse services. A set for 2 people is enough for 7 days and costs 3,380 Yen including tax and delivery.
Since the four vegetables are organically grown, they can be used with the whole skin. If you decide to order the box every week, it will be soon become a habit!
