If after the holidays you are left feeling sluggish, a little heavy feeling, maybe a few extra pounds on as well, then this you may like.
I also know after the holidays of some over indulgents this may also seem boring, but you and your body will love you for it!!
It’s easy to make, quick, simple, healthy, tasty, nutritious , full of enzymes, vitamins and nutrients, and will help you lose that sluggish, tired and feeling a little full feeling!!
Great for lunches, light dinners or even a snack.
– Big Handful of Organic (if possible) Spinach
– 1 chopped up Carrot
– 1 chopped up Celery stick
– 1 clove of Garlic
– juice of 1/2 Lime (or Lemon)
– 1/2 cup Parsley
– sea salt to taste
– 1/2 Avocado
– 3/4 cup Water
Throw all ingredients into your Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth. For more of a creaminess you can add the whole Avocado or cut back a little on the water, if you want it thinner add a little more water.
This is a guideline, but you can throw any vegetable in, but you want lots of greens….spinach , kale, collards etc and herbs….use any that you like. Garlic and salt adjust to your liking……just don’t use table salt!!
If you want it warm, you can slight warm it on the stove, BUT do NOT heat it or boil it as it will kill all the nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. We are programmed to eat HOT foods or think we need them and I know at times living in the rainforest here that I want warming foods……add spices like cumin, chili peppers etc to warm you up inside.
Experiment with the flavors and if you are needing to chew, when you’ve got the soup to how you like it, throw in a few veggies and just pulse for a min or two so you will have a chunky soup or have some crackers with it.
