Today's green monster of a soup is a Sweet Energy Soup recipe that I created this morning by just listening to what my body was craving. This made a whopping 42 ounces of green goodness and YES, I ate it all myself....I can put away the raw foods! This will count as two meals, breakfast and lunch. I stay satisfied after eating this until dinner time.
My last post discussed the myth that is floating out there that one must consume animal flesh to get protein, well as the articles stated nothing could be further than the truth. I consume more absorbable protein as a vegan that any carnivore hands down. What about iron you might ask?? Don't worry, it's in the dark leafy greens and sprouts! No excuses, vegan is the way to go for optimal health.
This soup is loaded with protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, omega 3's, amino acids and enzymes--over the top nutrient dense. Give 100% vegan a try for a few days and you will not believe how fantastic you feel.
The nutrient breakdown of the sunflower greens is:
Vitamins A, B, C and E
Chlorophyll, Iron, Magnesium, Niacin, Phosphorus, Potassium
And the nutrient breakdown of the broccoli sprouts is:
Vitamins A, B, C, E and K
Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc Carotene, Chlorophyll, Trace
Elements, Amino Acids Antioxidants
Here is my recipe for you to try. By the way, children LOVE this, 3 of my youngest all gather round me while I eat this begging for bites; even after they all just consumed their morning green smoothie!! They just love their greens--beautiful!
