Dr Jockers Comments:
I love a creamy and tangy soup like this that is loaded with good fats and anti-oxidants. This recipe is loaded with electrolytes and trace minerals that promote an alkaline environment within the body. It is also very easy on the digestive system, so those with compromised guts do very well with it as the blender has already pre-digested it for us!
Avocados are extremely rich in potassium and magnesium as well as the carotenoid anti-oxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. Cucumber is rich in the beauty mineral silica. The lemon provides more potassium, vitamin C and vitamin P (also called citrus bioflavonoids). This is a healthy skin and anti-aging recipe for sure!
Garlic and cilantro are powerful detoxifying foods that help pull toxic debris, bad bacteria and parasites out of the system. Cilantro, lemon and cucumber are also great for helping support the processes of the liver and kidneys for optimal health.
Most people really enjoy this recipe in the spring, summer and fall. Harder to do a cooler soup like this in the winter but great for the warmer months.
You can have this with other food or as a stand-alone lunch or snack. Let us know how you enjoyed it!
