Since I am doing a cleanse right now this recipe was perfect, but you don’t need to be on a cleanse to eat it. It is tasty, filling, easy to make and nutritious too.
This soup is totally raw / vegan and as well Gluten Free – making eating healthy easy.
Love how the weather is warming up and these foods are becoming more in season and abundance. Green is everywhere if you take a look around nature, the leaves not the tress are popping, the grass is growing, veggies are starting to pop their heads and flowers are out in full bloom, where I live in Vancouver anyways!! Nature always provides for us!
On the cleansing side, I am on Day 5 and am feeling pretty good. Since I don’t eat much, if any really crap or processed foods, cleansing is easier but I find it’s always good to give the body a bit of a break, it’s preventative, and like going in and having the oil changed on your car or a check up done. When we do things like this, it makes a difference health wise, even if you can only do a 24 hour one. Try it, you might be surprised or start noticing you food (or coffee) addictions!!
