Make Your Own Healthy and Delicious Soup in a Jiffy

I like to add lemon to my food as often as I can. It is not only flavorful and tasty, it's also nutritious. Lemon-based foods have a sharp taste and a fresh flavor. They are good appetizers.

Lemons are healthy because they are full of things your body needs like vitamin A, vitamin B 6, vitamin C, vitamin E, folate, niacin, calcium, pantothenic acid, copper, protein, iron, etc.

This fruit has cancer-fighting ability and antioxidants. It helps to prevent constipation, diabetes, fever, indigestion, and high blood pressure. It aids to improve skin, hair, and teeth health.

Lemon has awesome sharp-sour taste. It refreshes your mouth. Lemony foods are good appetizers.

Lemon and rice soup is very easy and quick to make. This is my own recipe that straight away provides you the health benefits of lemon and garlic. This clear puree is a winter winner.
