green soup

This soup is so simple, it has become one of my common go-to foods when I'm not sure what to eat. It is jam packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrition! Soup is an excellent comfort food. It is great for rainy days, or when you're starting to feel sick. This soup is not only good for your soul, it will help you beat any cold or allergies you're figthing.

green soup: makes 2-3 servings
2 cups of filtered water (add more if needed)
a whole bunch of greens (kale, romaine, spinach, spring mix - anything that is dark green)
dill or parsley depending on your preference
1 peeled lemon
3 stems of celery
1 cup broccoli
1 avocado
garlic powder
cayenne pepper (add when you eat. Cayenne continues to heat up - so if you store leftovers, your soup will be really hot the next day!)

Ideally, you would need a Vitamix to blend this into a smooth consistency. If you do not have one, a blender may work, but your soup will be chunkier. In the Vitamix, mix all ingredients above. Add the avocado after everything is blended.

I usually top with sprouts, tomatoes, or chopped cucumber. The soup above is topped with chopped cucumber, nutritional yeast, sea salt, and pepper.
