In the Winter there is nothing better than a big bowl of soup! This one is fast, easy and delicious!
1 bunch of a parsley
1 bunch of scallions
2 large zucchinis
3 large carrots
2 handfuls of spinach
2 cloves of garlic
2 Tablespoons of avocado or coconut oil
6 red potatoes
Fill a large pasta boiling pot 3/4 of the way with water and bring to a boil
Slice the garlic cloves and scallions and chop the parsley then add all three to the pot of water
Chop the red potatoes in eigths and add to the water once it's boiling. Let them boil for 30 mins - set a timer if you want.
While the potatoes are doing their thing...
Add the oil to the water
Slice the zucchini into bite size chunks
Chop the carrots
Salt the pot to taste - start with about a teaspoon then taste test - add more as need adding a little at a time
Add pepper and chayenne to taste
After the potatoes have boiled for 30 mins add the zucchini and carrots to the pot and boil for another 15 mins
Toss in the spinach and you're done!
You're ready to serve and cozy up!
This tonic is a my favorite cure-all. At the first sign of the sniffles it can kick to common cold's butt! It cleans the blood and fights infection with a few easy steps and ingredients. It also tastes great and can double as a hot toddy base on those cold nights in!
I like to make extra and give little mason jars of it to friends in the Winter.
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon (approx 1 oz)
3 match-stick size slices of Ginger
1/2 a clove of Garlic
2 pinches of Chayenne Pepper
3-4 oz of hot water
1 Small piece of Ginger
1 head of Garlic
Add the ingredients to a 4 oz mason jar. Scale up as desired. You can add a little raw honey too if you like.
The longer the tonic sits the stronger it gets!
Drink it straight or add 1oz if the tonic to your favorite tea or hot water.
*Turn it into a hot toddy with just a splash of bourbon!
Enjoy and stay well!
