RAW Food ENERGY…Tip of the week

For all you RAW and Gluten Free loving foodies out there,  and for anyone who wants a clean raw soup for a change and a tasty shot of energy…and some immune system boosting, and great taste. , move over gazpacho, here comes an A.R.S*.                                                                                                     Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Begin with avocado, which is high in EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) and Cucumber, which is known for its cleansing, diuretic properties.  Spinach has minerals & vitamins, garlic, lemon and lime are alkalizing and great for boosting your immune system     It’s also refreshing and tastes great!

It’s a “big favorite while on a cleanse or detoxification program”.   (Check my page on the 5 step program.)

Alkalizing Raw Soup* (Serves 2)

1 Avocado
2 green onions (scallions)
1/2 red or green pepper
1 cucumber  (if Organic scrub and use with peel)
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 clove fresh garlic (or more to taste)
Bragg’s Liquid Aminos to taste (like soy sauce)
1/2 Cup Light vegetable boullion (yeast free)
Juice of 1 lemon or lime Optional:  Coriander, parsley, cumin.  An apple, cored and cut up.

Blend the avocado and boullion to form a light paste.  Then add all the other ingredients and blend all together.  Serve in bowls or mugs with crackers crispy veggies and hummus or almond butter.

Consider this for a picnic drink,  in a thermos – refreshing change of afternoon pick-me-up or just a light meal.

NOTE:   Herbs such as Parsley have great cleansing properties and add flavor.  Coriander or Cilantro is a good heavy metal cleanser, and cumin adds great taste.   Use according to your individual preferences.
