Having stomach issues isn’t fun. We’ve all probably had trouble with digestion (constipation). The doctor always says that we have to eat more vegetables especially green veggies, high fiber nutrition and drink more water.

I know these three things are not always popular, but they are so very important.

Getting our daily intake of fiber is crucial to our overall health! If you question if you get enough, it means that you need more!

I know choose to make this pumpkin soup with leeks for the added boost of fiber.  Pumpkin is a high fiber source while leeks are known as the best remedy for constipation, according to information in France.

I love to serve this pumpkin soup with french bread or crusty bread. My children love this soup so much, especially if served with chicken nuggets! My family was so surprised when I told them that they was just finish a bowl of pumpkin soup with leek.

They said: “What? I ate leeks? But I didn’t taste leeks on the soup…aahh, you tricked us!”

Did I trick them? Maybe…but then again, if they never would have given it a try, they never would have known that they liked it! So, in all reality, I think that I did them a favor!
