tip of the day

Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.

Raw Asian Pepper Soup

Craving some Asian flavours but don’t have much time to cook or desire to spend $$$ on takeouts of dubious nutritional value? We have easy healthy solution for you in no time! 

In high speed blender (Blendtec or Vitamix produce best results; for commercial grade blenders veggies can be lightly boiled):

2 cups coconut milk (if using canned make sure it is additives free, organic is the best)
2 chopped red bell peppers
1 peeled chopped carrot
1 inch piece of ginger root (or half a tsp of ginger spice)
1 garlic clove
1 stalk lemongrass (can omit)
Dash of salt
Splash of some healthy oil (i.e. olive, hemp or flaxseed).

Serve with some chopped coriander and hemp seeds for extra protein.

Makes 2-3 portions
