Easy Healthy Borscht

Our Fully Functional® Healthy Borscht recipe is great to make when you are feeling under the weather. Red cabbage is packed with vitamin C and can help reduce inflammation. Beets are high in fiber, are high in antioxidants, help with detoxification and also help reduce inflammation

Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar can be used as a natural cold remedy since apple cider vinegar contains beneficial bacteria that can help give your immune system a quick boost.

This soup is traditional to Eastern Europe such as Ukraine and Poland. It is usually served cold with sour cream. Instead, we suggest topping with coconut yogurt and some fresh mint or eat it as is. It is delicious either way and tastes great whether served hot or cold.
