After my last post when I shared 20 easy ways to keep your home clean and green, you might be thinking you have a lot of making up to do for all of the toxic chemicals you’ve exposed yourself to over the years.
The important thing is that you do what you can now to minimize your exposure in the future. But you can help mitigate any damage too by eating highly alkaline, detoxifying foods.
This raw, chilled soup is a tasty, detoxifying meal. It contains basil and mint, two powerful detoxifying herbs. Avocado, cucumber, garlic, and green onions also contain natural detoxifiers.
It’s perfect for hot days, so you can enjoy it the rest of summer as quick and easy lunches or dinners. I hope you’ll give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
