Feeling In Need Of a Spring Cleanse: Lean Green Soup.

This is what I’ll be having a few times a week once I get back home, as after you finish a cleanse it’s really important to ease yourself back onto harder to digest foods. It’s also a winner for those times when you want to eat lightly but still need nourishing. It’s raw, so it retains all of the enzymes that are usually destroyed through cooking. And it’s stupendously tasty. Sometimes I add 2 tsp of my ‘Essential Greens’ powder so I’m getting some probiotics, spirulina and other super- natural greens and a load more nutrients. Why not?
