How Almond Cauliflower Soup Helps with Nail Health

  • Cauliflower contains lots of vitamin C which helps prevent hangnails and biotin which is a B vitamin. When we are deficient in biotin our nails become frail and we sometimes see horizontal or vertical ridges in our nails.
  • Kidney beans are a great source of protein which is important for healthy nails. Nails are made of protein, and protein deficiency leads to split, thin nails that don’t grow quickly.
  • Almonds are also a great source of biotin and like kidney beans they contain protein. In addition, almonds are a great source of stress reducing magnesium. When you are stressed out your nails tend to be more brittle.

Healing Herbs and Spices

The sprinkle of nutmeg makes all the difference in this recipe. Adding healing herbs and spices to your meals are one of the best ways to add variety and flavour to your diet without adding additional calories or sodium. They effortlessly transform a boring plate of brown rice and steamed broccoli into a spicy curry delicacy.
