We’re all about creating healthy habits here at Clean, so we’re psyched to pick up one up ourselves! We’ve decided to start sharing recipes from YOU, our amazing community! Every so often you’ll see a guest post where one of you shares a recipe that they loved while they were on the 21 day program!
This week, we kick it off with a perfect cleansing soup submitted by Emily Bragonier. She recently completed her third Clean Program and decided to “branch out with lightly cooked soups and create my own recipe.” Here’s what she came up with, we can’t wait to try it! And feel free to leave a comment, sharing your own recipes, we’d love to taste-test and feature them!
Jenny’s note: I would also gently re-warm this soup after pureeing to make a hot soup, especially as it turns colder. You could also steam all ingredients for easier blending or if your digestion does better with cooked veggies. It will still be packed with all the health and cleansing benefits.
1 large beet
1 medium carrot
1 spring onion
1/2 cucumber, peeled
1 thumb sized piece ginger
1 inch-sized piece lemon grass
1 tablespoon of fresh parsley or cilantro (or both)
1 can coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1. Wash and chop beet and carrot, then lightly steam or parboil.
2. Roughly chop remaining fresh ingredients and put it all in a blender along with the beets.
3. Add coconut milk and water.
4. Blend until creamy and serve room temperature, or gently warm over low heat.
A little bit about Emily:
“I’m a freelance editor living and working in Southern Vermont. In 2005, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and opted for an allopathic approach to recovery over the medications that were suggested by my neurologist. I also began my own research to better understand the underlying causes of my disease and quickly discovered the correlation between intestinal health and autoimmune disorders. I picked up Clean at the local community health clinic about this time last year. Since then, it has offered me an abundance of positive health effects, including increased energy levels, mental clarity, and clearer skin. More importantly, my most recent MRI showed a reduction of activity in my disease and a complete disappearance of one lesion that had been on my spine. I credit the Clean Program with helping my body heal itself and wanted to give something in return for this wonderful gift. I’m about to start my fourth run through the Program, so I decided to experiment and expand the raw soup list. Considering my love of beets and Thai food, I came up with this Asian-style borscht. I hope the Clean Community enjoys this recipe as much as I do!”
