Day 17: Soup-er

I’m still on the herbs kick. And I realized I haven’t done anything with my favorite fruit- avocado. This is a smoothie but the savory flavor and mouthfeel from the avocado make it work as a soup.

Greens Soup
1 cup chard or other greens
5 sprigs parsley
I cup cucumber
1 stalk celery
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2-5 stalks celery
1/2 apple
1/2 avocado
1/2 clove garlic
sea salt
cayenne pepper

Blend all ingredients until smooth, serve in a bowl.
Alternative: add the avocado chopped on top, rather than blended

Parsley has health promoting phytochemicals, such as cancer-fighting antioxidants.
Avocados are a holy food to me. They are a great source anti-oxidants and other anti-inflammatory nutrients.
