Did you know it is good to start your meals with a cream or soup? It tonifies your digestive system.

Always remember to add something crispy or that needs chewing. Otherwise, your stomach might assume there isn´t much work ahead and the amount of hydrochloric acid released might not be enough to digest the food later.

This leek cream is one of a kind! It is refreshing and it can be enhanced by adding a little mint. Give it a try!
