Eating more vibrant colors will help us to see a more colorful world. When we take the little extra time to make our meals beautiful, allowing them to become an art piece, they become even more nourishing and fortified with nutrients. That's because:
When our food is beautiful we are MUCH more likely to eat it slow.
When we eat slow we enhance our digestion and metabolism by A LOT and therefore optimize digestion!
The food we eat eventually becomes our body! As our meals are broken down and nutrients assimilated it is vital that we are choosing food that gives us energy rather than takes away our energy.
Let us continue to create our colorful, messy, nutritious masterpieces together~ loving ourselves each bite of the way.
Tomato Basil Soup
Tools: Vitamix or high speed blender
Yields about 2 cups
Ingredients: Use as many ingredients from either your garden or your neighbors or from the farmers market. These will be that much more nutritious (and therefore more delicious ;) )
2 tomatos (I used the flavorful yellow tomatoes (I forget what they are called!), but make sure they have a lot of flavor! I notice conventional and GMO tomatoes don't have much flavor these day, something important to keep in mind w this recipe)
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 inch of tumeric
small handful of basil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4-1/2 tsp raw honey
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon of olive oil or flax seed oil
1/2-3/4 cup of filtered water
Place all ingredients into blender except avocado and basil and blend until smooth.
When thoroughly blended add basil and blend again.
Pour chilled soup into a bowl and cut avocado into small pieces and mix into soup.
Eat chilled and enjoy thoroughly. :)
