Tomatoes, carrots and peppers are good sources of carotenoids. Carotenoids are substances found in fruit and vegs responsible for their bright red, yellow, orange and purple colours. Carotenoids act as a type of antioxidant for humans and have also been linked with a reduced breast cancer risk, especially when you eat lots of them.
All vegetables used for this recipe help you reach your daily fibre goal of 30g a day. There is increasing evidence that a diet high in fibre reduces breast cancer risk.
If you are trying to lose weight, this soup is a great low-calorie choice. Maintaining the correct weight for your height is a key part of ensuring you reduce your risk of breast cancer.
