Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

The first weekend of the year is the perfect time to Get Our Soup On!!  I'm thinking many of you may have similar goals: cleanse, detoxify and maybe even to lose a few pounds! Today I'm sharing 3 delicious, nutrient dense green soups that can be eaten straight from your blender, or gently heated if temperatures are cold where you are.

 

Today's superstar is WATERCRESS!

 

Watercress is often used in Chinese medicine & holistic protocols as an effective expectorant for expelling excessive mucus from the lungs and body. Pureeing watercress with other ingredients like; garlic, onion, green vegetables and vegetable broth is a tremendous aide in detoxification and in grounding the body. The addition of freshly cracked black pepper stimulates circulation and a touch of ginger will help to loosen any phlegm in the lungs so the watercress blend becomes even more effective.


Watercress Soup
1 small bundle watercress
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1 avocado
1 small cucumber
1 small jalapeno - seeded
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1 -2 cups Balancing Broth, or water to blend

 

Put all ingredients into a high speed blender and combine until warm and creamy.

I've been having extreme technology challenges since December. It is so frustrating.  I even had an RFR angel send a reconditioned Flip cam to me, but yesterday it froze up on me mid-filming.  I also had a couple of very kind  donations come in last month so I'm just going to breakdown and go buy a new camera this weekend.
