Healing vegetable soup for a happy body & mind
It can heal anything because it addresses deficiencies, making you stronger
to cope with physical and emotional stresses. It avoids allergens and toxins
while helping you heal and detoxify. It stabilizes your blood sugar and
therefore your mood and energy levels.
It's so healthy that it can cure anything! Even exhaustion, diabetes and
I made this recipe when I was very poor. I thought that it was best to have
a little food that is highly nutritive, than more of cheap worthless foods.
The recipe evolved over the years, you can modify it with more vegetables.
I like to add Chinese leafy greens.
The basic ingredients
- Oven baked chicken
I rarely add ginger and turmeric in the soup since I put so much to
flavor the meat.
- Chicken bone broth
To get the gelatin, the flexible collagen built with vitamin C, and
minerals from the bones. I keep boiling them with my new batch of bones
until they completely dissolve.
- Salad ideas
I always eat one to complement my meals. Salads increase satiety and
ease bowel problems. Raw vegetables and fruits provide raw enzymes to
digest and be part of your immune system. It's best to use fresh living
cells to renew your cells.
It's as simple as cutting vetegables into pieces that can fit in your mouth
and boiling it until it looks edible.
I put hard vegetables like carrots, broccoli feet and celery in my boiling
water first so they have extra time to cook while I cut the fragile leafy
greens. If they turn brighter green, they're done. If they turn brown you
rot them and they will taste awful.
I grate and freeze big batches of ginger and turmeric in thin layers in
Ingredients with more details
- Squash. I usually use the green summer squash
because it keeps longer, but the yellow one is fantastic too. Or butternut
winter squash, it has a beautiful orange color but I prefer it as a
- Green onions
- Grated ginger. I grate the roots without
peeling them to avoid wasting food and energy. I freeze batches in advance
in thin bags.
- Turmeric's curcumin (plant curcuma longa)
- Grey Celtic Sea Salt: 1-2 teaspoon per meal and
more if you need it or if you make a big batch. A percentage
of real salts are trace minerals so it won't be as salty as table salt
that has a bleach smell. (coarse is cheaper, alkaline with nutritive
grey trace minerals. This is the brand Selina Naturally. Himalayan pink
salt is fine too. As long as it's real salt and not bleached white,
with toxic anticaking agents like ferrocyanide and even sugar!)
10 benefits of Celtic Sea Salt and
- Meat: chicken, preferably bio and farm raised
so it will have a nice life and quick death, without using arsenic to
irritate the flesh into a false healthy pink. Or fish or eggs (if you're
not allergic). Red is too hard to digest for this healing recipe, pork
has too much toxins. Use grass fed animals if you can afford it.
- Sweet potatoes vermicelli (yam noodles) optional.
None if you need to rest and heal or only a pinch for extra energy.
Make sure that you have more vegetables than noodles. I buy the Ontrue
brand from china town. The texture is like gummy candy (but without
the toxic sugar and dyes) instead of cardboard grains. Don't trust them
even without gluten; removing the only nutritional element left from
the processing won't make them safer.
- Water, tap is fine (unless you have fluoride...
then demand that they stop poisoning your water with the aluminum industry's
toxic waste "for your own good"). Plastic bottles leach chemicals,
pollute and are tap water anyway. Brita filters turn water too acidic.
Reverse osmosis take the vital minerals away. The best is chicken
or other boiled bones. Tap turned into a super nutritious food.
- Optional: Yellow and/or green haricots, fresh in their juicy shell.
Or sugar snap peas but they're better in a salad to keep the crunch.
You can also add peas or some bell pepper too. Romano cheese as well.
Cut everything in small enough pieces to fit in your mouth. Soften at medium
heat until the green vegetables become more colorful. If they turn brown,
you over killed them and they won't taste very good.
I used to cook all vegetables with steam separately since carrots take longer
to become soft, and sometimes I boil those and the feet of broccoli first
while I cut the rest. But I often just throw it all in and live with the
Sugar snap peas are best raw. Align one with the side of your teeth with
its side up and down, and slowly chew down with your mouth open, trying
to make as much noise as possible. It's bliss. Probably impolite though.
It's important to have raw foods to benefit from the enzymes. Otherwise
you don't have them to help you digest and absorb your food, and it might
end up looking like a foreign invader and trigger reactions; 51% raw foods
prevents this. Using a microwave to warm food up is a destructive mutated
disaster, it exhausts the body and succeeding to build himself with those
dead deformed molecules is dreadful. Ban microwaves, like whole countries
did, for a good reason. I had such a boost of energy from that alone…
it was amazing! Read Microwave
cooking is killing people
- Red leaf lettuce
- Green apples
- Sugar snap peas, raisins, lime and/or grapefruit, etc...
Break the lettuce with your hands, and cut pieces of the rest. You can do
a vegetable version with grated carrots, sugar snap peas,
parsley, peppers, parsley and/or spinach
(or use them in the stew).
Or you can add more fruits like blueberries, strawberries,
raspberries and/or grapefruit pieces
With this delight you won't even miss the salad dressing. The sugar cause
mood swings, from diabetes to its hypoglycemic crash, and soy is a Xenoestrogen
(wiki) that messes with your hormones. It can worsen PMS in women and cause
impotence in men. Not worth the pain. You can make your own dressing with
bio products: olive oil
that was cold pressed
to preserve its nutritional value, and apple cider vinegar
with "mother". Garlic clarify the blood and can worsen anemia,
so I save it for special occasions only.
To prepare the meat:
I cook it on the side, with a cover to steam in its own juices. Or use heat
resistant fat like butter or coconut, but I'd avoid the taste of coconut
unless it's for noodles. Meat can be thrown in directly, like in the case
of eggs or fish. I make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly.
To cook a chicken:
The most delicious way is in the oven: Oven
But it can be sliced, even half-unfrozen, it's actually easier this way.
Slives are great in a pan with a lid to steam the chicken in its own juices;
then I add vegetables and sweet potato noodles. But a soup makes vitamins
so much easier to absorb and hydrates you.
Meat can even thrown in water and boil them. Avoid frying. While cold preserves,
heat kills. You need living building blocks to replace your used up ones.
It's true about vegetables but also with meat.
To heal, eat the soup 2-3 times per day, or more;
for at least 3 days.
Everything stays in your blood for minimum that long. But to clean the toxins
that fat sealed in to protect you it will take longer. (Read my Purpose

The time and energy that you'll put into making your own meals from scratch
brings rewards in health, looks, mood, self esteem and the energy

I had to put my head against
the refrigerator to be able to stand up; it took me hours to cut a few
vegetables. But thanks to that I can walk and breathe easily now. Give
yourself a chance instead of excuses.
Supplements help greatly too, their positive effects are limited by the
amount; but also by what you put in your mouth and on your skin: it's
either death or life itself. Make sure it makes you feel good instead
to only look good. It's what's inside that counts:
healthy vital organs!

And of course... Enjoy~
