Warm Uncooked Avocado Soup

Hi everyone!
This weeks recipe is a really nourishing soup and we’re not cooking any of the ingredients but the soup is going to be served warm!
I’m keeping everything fresh and raw, all the enzymes, vitamins and minerals will be just as nature intended and I’m mixing the vegetables with hot water, making the soup warm and toasty!
.
This soup serves one person and I’m using half an avocado, fennel and celery (so good for detoxing bodies). I’m adding chilies to speed up the metabolism, ginger – really good anti inflammatory and loads of greens like rocket and parsley, 1/2 a freshly squeezed lime adds zing and vitamin C.

You need a blender for this soup.  I’m using the Nutribullet, the small container works well for this soup for one.

Raw Sweet Crispy Beetroot and Fennel Salad

20140601180704(3)

Fennel is defiantly the star ingredients in this salad.
Fennel is sweet and crispy and comes with gorgeous phytonutrients like rutin and quercitin.
I’m also using  über healthy, raw beetroot packed with loads of lovely antioxidants, it comes with anti-inflammatory action and is great for helping the body detox itself.
All the ingredients needs to be really thinly sliced so a mandolin comes in handy.
So much quicker and safer for me as my knives skills are not completely up to scratch and I’m very often sporting a sticky plaster on my left thumb!
This salad is perfect as a starter for four people or have it all as a main 🙂

Raw Fennel Soup

This great tasting Raw Fennel Soup is full of goodness.
I love the taste of fennel and it comes with both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, it’s high in antioxidants and great for the digestive system.
The beautiful avocado enhances beauty inside and out with its abundance of healthy oils, important Vitamin K and glutathione.
