Energy Soup – Your Way!
Leafy Greens – Spinach, kale, swiss chard or any of your favorite leafy greens. Make sure to look for wild greens, as they have amazing nutritional properties.
Raw Vegetables – zucchini, cucumber, asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, or any other raw vegetable, adding at least 1-2 of them to the the greens. If you do not have a problem with night-shades try adding some tomatoes.
Raw Fruits – Choose your favorite fruit. We love apples, pears and mangoes, but you can choose your favorite fruit to make your energy soup your own.. My standard is apples and I add only a single apple along with an inch of fresh ginger to make a pitcher of sweet energy soup.
Flavor Enhancers – Dulse, kelp and other sea vegetables really being up the flavor of the soup and are an excellent source of minerals. Raw onions and garlic add delicious flavor to soup. Fresh ginger is always a favorite and when making a sweet soup,you may even want to add a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg to garnish your soup
Fresh Herbs – Basil, oregano, Italian seasoning, or cilantro; experiment with your favorite herbs. You may want to use no more than two different herbs as you don’t want to make the soups flavor too complex.
Fresh Lemon Juice – Lemon juice is extremely alkalizing to the body and adds a subtle tang to your soup.
Nut & Seed & Avocado Cream – You can simply add the avocado to make the soup creamer. To increase the protein content of the soup experiment with seed and nut creams or just as some of your favorite nuts and seeds to the soup and blend in. My favorite is hemp.
Unprocessed Sea Salt and Pepper – A little touch of sea salt will enhance the flavor of your soup. Go easy on the salt and use more duse or kelp as enhancers. Regular iodized table salt is heavily processed, so opt for sea salt instead. Crushed black pepper adds a nice addition, as does cayenne pepper if you like your soup spicy.
Rejuvelac or Water. You need to add some liquid to get your soup to the consistency you like. How thick you want your soup is totally up to you. Here at CHI we always use rejuvelac as part of our soup base. Its amazing how wonderful it makes the soup taste, while making it I like a thick, creamy soup.
Wishing everyone a great easter weekend. Love & Blessings, Bobby
