I frequently mention how we’re not getting enough minerals in our diets and the negative effects this can have on overall health. Here is a delicious cold soup, perfect for summer if you’re suffering through a heat wave, that is cooling, cleansing, rich in minerals and very alkalizing. An acidic body leads to degeneration and illness, so alkalizing foods like greens and mineral-rich veggies are excellent for bringing the body into balance. You can use broth instead of water to add even more healing benefits.
3 Small avocados (or one extra large or 2 medium)
½ Bunch cilantro
1/2 bunch parsley
½ Bunch Organic Spinach ( don’t encourage use kale or cruciferous veggies raw, as it may disrupt thyroid function)
2 Small lemons (without seeds)
3 Cups filtered water OR use slightly warmed bone broth or chicken stock
½ Teaspoon celtic sea salt (optional)
1/2 cucumber, peeled
2 stalks celery (juiced, if possible, and if you’re not using vita-mix)
Wash everything thoroughly and put all the ingredients in a Vita-Mix blender* and blend well using the tamper. Once the ingredients are well blended, pour the soup into a large bowl and garnish with dulse flakes or nori strips for added trace minerals!
*If you’re not using a Vita-Mix, best to do the blending in 2 batches.
