My journey through food and nutrition to better health.
There is no particular reason why I decided to start my cleanse in the evening. I guess I liked the idea of starting a new day after a 12 hour fast.
The morning was spent prepping my cupboards and fridge. All set and no temptation in sight 🙂
Some staple supplements for morning juices which I buy from iherb.com. I don’t know what I’d do without this website! The prices are the best out there for supplements. And with free and fast delivery, how could you resist. Staying healthy is now a bit more convenient for me. No excuses 🙂 If you haven’t tried out iherb yet, feel free to use my discount code GOW401. You will get from $5 to $10 discount on your first order if you use it. As a bonus, I will also benefit from your order through their rewards scheme. Win win! 😀
Now to flush out those toxins. Here goes ~
The following recipe is very easy and what makes it so fabulously satisfying is the ginger and lemon which adds a beautiful depth of flavour to this soup.
The Soup (makes 4 servings)
What’s in it?
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 large red onion, chopped
2 lbs carrots, peeled and diced
10 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 inch ginger
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
4 cups of vegetable broth (yeast free)
Juice of 2 small lemons (1 if you like a more mild taste of lemon)
1 cup coconut milk
heat a large saucepan over medium heat
add the onions and saute until translucent
add the garlic, ginger, cumin and cinnamon cook for 2-3 minutes more
add the carrots, stir and coat for another 4 minutes
