The ingredients we consume on a regular basis are beneficial for us and improve our health or they degrade it. Much of what we cook is of no use to our body as its enzymes were lost in the cooking process. When we pay attention to what we eat we can feel much better than if we throw caution to the wind. If we take the time to make good healthy, food it is easy to make.
How to make your healthy soup:
5 ripe tomatoes chopped – can use more if desired
1 cup or one large chopped cucumber
1 1/2 cups red bell pepper finely chopped
1/2 cup – about 1/4 medium red onion
6 finely chopped green onions
1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
4 cloves fresh garlic minced
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp – about 1/2 small hot green chilli for a touch of heat
1 tsp Celtic sea salt depending on your taste
1/4 cup filtered cold water or more for desired consistency
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup fresh lime juice
Place all ingredients in a good blender and pulse to the desired consistency. You can also hand stir the contents if you do not have a good enough blender.
For a chunky consistency add
1 cup finely diced chopped green pepper
2 stalks of finely chopped celery
1/2 cup cucumber finely chopped or cut in to quarter wedges about an 8th of an inch thick
Again place the full contents in a bowl and add the previous mix (from earlier) and allow the flavors to meld together. The contents can be served an hour after mixed. You can even leave it overnight before serving. Adding diced avocado upon serving is a popular option for many wanting more protein.
