Detox Soup the Yummy Way
by Jen Springer
Simple, quick, delicious, and DETOXIFYING?
The recipe below came out so well, I had to share immediately!
I have chugged lots of nasty gunk in attempt to cleanse my body. Recently, I have had a massive bout of inflammation. My knees, shoulders, lower back, left wrist, and left hip are annoyingly painful for no evident reason.
When my connective tissues go aflame, I know it’s time to go put out the fire with veggies and omega fats. I realized this when I got sick in 2007, all my body would tolerate was ground flax and greens powder. I lived on it for a few weeks. The slime of the flax got to me and many times I gagged it down, but what happened after a few days was amazing.
All pain in my body was gone. Poof.
As I reflected today on the limited creativity I had five years ago with the flax and greens, I knew I could create something fun and satisfying.
When you’re done with this bowl, your tummy will be full and body will be smiling.
What you need:
6 Spears Steamed Asparagus
2 C. Water
1 Clove of Garlic
2 Stalks of Raw Celery Cut in 2″ pieces
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
1/2 tsp. Dried Basil or 2 Leaves of Fresh
1/8 tsp. Redmond Real, Himalayan, or Unprocessed Dead Sea Salt
2 tablespoons of freshly ground golden flax or ground chia.
Add all ingredients except the flax to blender and puree until smooth. Then heat over stove until warm, but not hot. Boiling kills the enzymes in the raw veggies and they won’t do their job as well purifying the body. When done, whisk in the golden flax. The soup will become thick. Eat immediately.
What did I have for dessert? A sliced small raw beet with a bit of salt. Remember, I’m detoxifying not self indulging. Everything I eat has a purpose. Beets bind out acid and are one of the top foods for the liver, plus they satisfy the sweet tooth.
If I come up with any more fabulous detox meals in these next few days as I release this inflammation, you will be the first to know.
