Raw Food Diet Avocado Soup

leave a comment »

This soup is summery and fresh, perfect both for people who adhere to the raw food diet and for people who just want an avocado soup that tastes great to cool them off and nourish them on a summer’s day. The recipe was given to me by my beloved Joy Lynn. I tweaked it just a little because I don’t have a blender X)

Ingredients for Raw Food Diet Avocado Soup

Serves one.

1 Avocado

1 small cucumber

1 head of celery

Juice of 1 lemon

Salt, olive oil and provençal herbs to taste (if you don’t have provençal herbs, a mix of oregano and thyme will do well)

A bit of briefly soaked raw wakame seaweed

More avocado and carrot to garnish

How to make Raw Food Diet Avocado Soup

Joy’s recipe was simple: blend all of the ingredients together in a blender and then garnish with extra cubes of avocado and grated carrot.

I don’t have a blender so what I did was put the celery and cucumber through my juice machine and then with a minipime blend the avocado and other things into that.

Joy says, by the way, that the salt and oil are optional because the avocado already makes it creamy and the celery already makes it salty. This is a slightly healthier version for extra points. 🙂

Raw food diet

If you just came here for an avocado soup recipe, then let me take a moment to tell you what the raw food diet is about.

Also known as the living foods diet, the raw food diet is based around foods that are edible raw. Raw foods have a higher content of enzymes and nutrients, and don’t have the toxins created by application of heat. The great thing is you can feel it! Notice how much healthier and more energetic you feel after eating a raw avocado soup compared to a heavier meal.

On this site you can find lots more raw and semi-raw recipes, as well as other recipes made with optimum health in mind.

Raw pasta

raw pasta

Hi guys! 🙂

I decided not to make “The Spiritual Vegan” a professional path like with my lightworker’s site http://www.lightworkersconnection.com but I do enjoy putting up recipes from time to time.

Currently I’m on the raw food diet. My ultimate goal is to go breatharian, which is as it sounds. Most people freak out when I tell them this, but I assure you that so long as I consistently lose weight on a no-food diet, I will take that as a sign I can’t live off air yet, so I won’t push myself. 🙂

Today’s raw recipe was inspired by my lovely friend Joy, who is as she sounds. 🙂

How to make raw pasta

Raw pasta is easy: you get out a peeler and attack a cucumber with it. (Zucchini work too I hear). You can get the long pasta like strips as seen in the picture this way.

I made the raw pasta sauce by liquidizing three or four tomatoes with a minipime. I added spring onions and some green pepper to this, plus salt, olive oil and provençal herbs (you can use oregano or your choice of herbs if you can’t find this delicious ingredient). All blitzed together.

This was topped, as you can see, with my beloved alfalfa sprouts. ❤

Liquized tomatoes make a great base for many “sauce” type recipes. Try blending in curry paste too, maybe with some coconut.
