Happy New Years! Starting the New Year off with a raw dish to help cleanse and detox the days gone by. This soup is alkalizing and refreshing. Not only is it an anti-inflammatory soup but it’s also full of beneficial ingredients that your body will thank you for. Let the power of red work wonders for your health.Each ingredient has its own special nutritional benefit, all of which contain plenty of vitamins, minerals, fiber and some proteins. For extra protein and nutrition try adding a sprinkle of black sesame, hemp or chia seeds on top. Would be great with spiralized zucchini noodles too! Eating fresh and clean for half of your daily intake is highly helpful in keeping the mind, body and spirit aligned and in good health. Cheers to good health in the new year!
