So, I am doing a cleanse/detox/elimination diet this week. I feel kind of funny talking about it because, who really cares what someone else is eating? And, yet…
My dear friend Shannon Nickerson is a health and wellness coach. She’s someone who really knows her stuff and when she offers something like this at such an amazing price, I had to jump on it.
What I like about this program is that there are no special potions, it’s not a fast, and it’s not just juice. We’ve been eating real food, just really healthy foods.
One of the recipes is for a creamy asparagus soup. I brought it to my book club and even the non-cleansers loved it!
Creamy Asparagus Soup
1 large onion, chopped
2TBL extra virgin olive oil
1 pound asparagus, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup cauliflower
3 cups vegetable broth or water (I use this broth and it is so good!)
Juice of one lemon (or 2 TBL)
Saute onion in olive oil until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Add asparagus pieces and season with salt and pepper, then cook, stirring, for 5 minutes.
Add cauliflower and broth and simmer, covered, until the vegetables are tender– 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat. Add lemon juice. Place soup into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
And let me put in a plug for Shannon–If you, like me, are having issues with sleep, stress, weight gain, hormone junk, lack of motivation, or just not feeling 100%, you should contact her. She works over the phone or email and can get you feeling great again!
