Spicy Low Carb Jalapeños and Cheddar Soup

Surprisingly this lively little pepper is full of nutrients and other health benefits. Jalapeños may also help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism, increasing fat burn and reducing your appetite. the also contain capsaicin which has strong anti-cancer properties and is capable of killing over 40 types of cancer cells without harming normal cells.

Some of the biggest risk factors for heart disease include diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Capsaicin can help reduce the impact of these factors and may help keep your heart healthy.

We all know there may be some precautions when preparing Jalapeños. Yes they are common sense but just in case you forgot:

  • Use gloves: Wearing gloves when handling peppers can prevent transferring the spicy compounds to other sensitive areas of your body like your eyes.
  • Remove membranes: Remove the white membranes inside the jalapeño before cooking with them, since the membranes have the highest concentration of capsaicin.
  • Drink milk: If the burning sensation becomes too strong, drinking full-fat cow’s milk can help temporarily reduce the pain.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
