I've finally managed to fix up some fabulous gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free fare using fresh fruit, veggies, protein and grains. Let's just say I've got a few tricks up my sleeve. 

Please try my comforting "superfood" soup to knock out toxins and take your tastebuds to a whole 'nother level. It's so simple...you can even make it in an electric "hot pot" in a college dorm room (that's what I used to do).

Here's What You Need:

3-4 cups chopped asparagus
2 chopped white or sweet Vidalia onions
1-2 chopped green bell peppers
3 ripe, medium-sized tomatoes 
1 tbsp dried basil
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
black pepper to taste (if desired)

Fill a large saucepan with all ingredients and enough water to cover everything.

Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for up to 2 hours. Serve over cooked quinoa for a delicious balance of complex carbs, protein, and veggies. 

Did You Know?
  • Quinoa are the seeds of a grain-like plant known for its high protein content. Not only does it contain calcium and magnesium, but it's a great complex carbohydrate alternative to brown rice. It's high in lysine, an immune-supporting amino acid and vitamin B6, a likely mood booster.
  • Onions are packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer properties. They're best for you in the raw form, but cooked onions are great, too.
  • Asparagus is high in nutrients and vitamins such as vitamin K, which helps the body absorb calcium.
  • Green bell peppers help cleanse the liver and may help lower high blood pressure. They contain lots of vitamin A and C as well as potassium. 
  • Tomatoes are high in lycopene, a cancer-fighting antioxidant.
So, eat up and be well!
