Last time, I shared a day in the life of the 80/20 lifestyle, including what I eat on a typical day. As you know, I try to eat as many raw foods as I can. And one way I love to get raw veggies in is to eat raw soup.
They’re great for the on-the-go 80/20 lifestyle because it’s easy to take them to work or make extra for meals throughout the week.
If you like gazpacho, you’re going to really enjoy a lot of raw soups.
There are so many delicious raw soup recipes out there, and the one I’m sharing today is no exception. Most raw soups use a blender to pulverize the ingredients and make a smooth, velvety broth.
This cold spinach soup is extra creamy because of the avocado and nuts that are included in the blend.
Creamy Raw Spinach Soup
2 cups filtered water
½ bunch spinach (chopped to fit in blender – it should fill the canister)
1 cup loose basil
¼ cup red onion, chopped
½ medium cucumber
1 stalk celery
¼ cup avocado
½ tomato, chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
½ medium clove garlic
½ tsp. Celtic sea salt
¼ cup pine nuts, cashews, or almonds
Combine everything in the blender except the tomato. Blend on high. Ladle and add the tomatoes as a garnish. To serve, drizzle with olive oil.
