Lately, I have been practically 100% raw again which feels great!
The only exception to this is, I have been enjoying warm raw miso vegetable soup. And while miso is not typically raw, it is ‘live’ as it has probiotics in it. If the soup is warmed lightly but not made hot, the probiotics will still thrive. (I’m discovering that probiotics are perhaps the single most important addition to our diets to not only replenish healthy bacteria but also to help the body heal itself in so many fascinating ways.) I simply warm up water, add in about 2 tbs. miso, and stir with a pinch of salt and perhaps a dash of sesame oil for flavor. Then I chop up broccoli, carrots and red cabbage and toss in. It’s very simple, warming, and delicious! This soup makes a good counterpoint to my sweeter Superfood Sylk which I’ve been having daily as my main food.

5 cups purified water
1 cup soaked raw organic cacao beans
1 cup soaked raw organic nuts or seeds (or 1 cup raw organic hemp seed)
Discard soak water. The nuts and cacao beans can be soaked together.
Return the cacao-nut liquid to the VitaMix or whatever blender you are using.
Add to blender and cacao-nut liquid ::
1 tsp. organic maca powder
1 tsp. Merlin’s Roots Elixir
2 tsp. Green Powder (try Vitamineral Green or this rawsome new product, Lydia’s Green Power Supergreens Mix, I like them both! I know you can now get this at Natural Zing. I’m very excited for Lydia creating this rawsome new product.)
1 tbs. +,- extra virgin organic coconut oil
1-2 tbs. raw honey (you could use agave, dates, or stevia if you prefer)
1 tsp. bee pollen
1 whole vanilla bean (or 1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla)
3-4 capsules probiotics such as acidophilus
1 pinch unheated sea salt
Blend this Superfood concoction until Silky Smooth! It has kind of an odd color, but don’t worry about it…
I LOVE this drink! This is one way to supercharge your day and your bod. Enjoy and let me know how you like it!
