Cleanse, Detoxify and Rebuild with Raw Green Energy Soup

When I was taking raw and living foods classes, one of the most important meals I learned to

prepare was Energy Soup–considered to be Ann Wigmore’s most powerful natural healing remedies.

According to Ann Wigmore, energy soup is the most important nourishment in the Living Foods

Lifestyle.

Why?

Energy Soup rebuilds, cleanses and detoxifies our bodies while providing every nutrient you need

in a well-balanced, easy to digest form.

Even though I knew that Energy Soup was good for me, it took a while for me to enjoy the taste of

this nutritional powerhouse.

Living food experts recommend drinking an entire blender of Energy Soup throughout the day–

ideally during the first 8 to 12 hours after making it.

I have since learned that there are many variations on Ann Wigmore’s original energy soup, but they

usually share some common principles and ingredients.

What’s in Green Energy Soup?

The key ingredients in most recipes include variations on the following items:

Organic Greens:

Greens provide chlorophyll, protein, calcium and a full array of important nutrients.

Kale, collards, chard, dandelion, romaine lettuce, spinach and mustard greens are popular choices.

If you have your own organic garden, the most powerful healers are wild weeds and the home-grown

baby leafy greens such as organic alfalfa, broccoli, buckwheat greens, cabbage, clover, fenugreek,

garlic, green pea shoots, kale, lettuce, mizuna, mustard, onion, radish, spinach, sunflower greens,

turnip and watercress.

Buckwheat Sprouts:

Bursting with chlorophyll, vitamins A and C, calcium and lecithin, these greens are super-nutritious

and powerful healers.

Sunflower Sprouts:

Packed with chlorophyll, protein, B-complex vitamins, vitamin E, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium

and phosphorus, sunflower sprouts (as well as buckwheat sprouts) are easy to grow in your home.

Organic Bean Sprouts:

You may be surprised to learn that sprouted beans are the best source of protein on earth.

They’re higher in protein than cooked beans because the DNA in a sprout is busy making new proteins

for the plant’s growth.

These proteins are pre-digested into amino acids so they’re easy to absorb.

Mung bean sprouts and lentil sprouts provide loads of enzymes, protein, iron, vitamin C, potassium

and fiber.

Bean sprouts too are high in vitamins E and C, and have different minerals from greens – beans are rich

in organic iron, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, sulfur and copper, while greens have boron, chlorine, iodine

and silicon.

Both greens and beans are good calcium, potassium, and magnesium sources – needed for our bones

and muscles, nerve transmissions, and electrolyte balance.

Seaweed:

Dulse and kelp are two of the most nutritious seaweeds–containing all 65 trace elements and minerals

plus organic iodine.

Avocado:

This delectable source of good fat also supplies vitamins A, C, Bi B2, B3, iron, phosphorus and magnesium.

Apples:

Blending apples with greens makes both easy to digest, plus apples contain protein, fat, carbohydrates, calcium,

phosphorus, iron, potassium, sodium, vitamins A, B1, B2, C and niacin.

Note that Ann Wigmore suggested peeling apples because the peel contain enzyme inhibitors making them

difficult to digest.

Fresh or dehydrated herbs:

Favorites include cilantro, basil, rosemary, garlic, ginger or cayenne pepper.

Filtered water or Rejuvelac:

Rejuvelac is a nutritious, fermented, living foods, probiotic beverage made from sprouted wheat berries

that  you should make in advance in order for it to be ready to add to your Energy Soup.

If you don’t have Rejuvelac available, you can use  filtered water instead.

I haven’t made Rejuvelac lately, however, here is a good Rejuvelac recipe for you to follow.

Here is a basic Energy Soup recipe for you to work from and make your own.
