DETOX GREEN SOUP

DETOX GREEN SOUP

 

Instructions:

Using a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat and stir in the garlic, onion, and ginger to season the oil. Add the broccoli, spinach, parsnips, celery and parsley, and stir until the spinach wilts and collapses. Add just enough water to cover the vegetables and add one Rapunzel bouillon cube. You can make this a thinner soup by simply adding more water.

Lunch in a Jar

Lunch in a jar

A clever idea to a healthy lunch!

The one thing to remember about salad in a jar is that your dressing goes on the bottom so therefore, you should only use things that do well “marinating” in dressing because the 2nd layer is going to be touching the dressing. The rest is pretty easy, here is a quick guide on how to make a salad in a jar.

1. Start by putting 2 Tablespoons of dressing into the bottom of the jar (see Balsamic Dressing below).

2. Add items that will respond well to marinating in the dressing.

  • cucumbers
  • squash
  • mushrooms

3. Add your remaining veggies and greens.

  • tomatoes
  • red bell pepper
  • broccoli
  • broccoli slaw
  • avocado sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent browning
  • spring mix (lots of this – you can really pack it in)
  • sprouts

4. Add remaining ingredients.

  • Cooked Chicken, beef, fish, or nuts and seeds

Balsamic Dressing

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Braggs liquid aminos (or sea salt)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

 Preparation

1. Combine all ingredients except olive oil in a blender and blend.

2. Continue to blend at a low speed as you add olive oil, until it is completely emulsified
