Jet lag. 3 out-of-control inboxes.
…and a big smile after a stellar vacation.
I can’t wait to share all the fun with you guys, but today it’s going to be short and sweet as I play catch up.
Yes, I ate the red meat, but surprisingly more fish (more popular in Chile). I’m still committed to a plant-based diet at home though. In fact, this is all I’ve wanted coming back today:
A chilled summer soup packed with green nutrients.
It was a bowl-licking moment.
Chilled Cucumber Spinach Soup
- 1 cucumber
- 2 C spinach
- 2-3 celery stalks (don’t use if you are using a regular blender)
- 1/2 jalapeno
- 1/2 C cilantro
- 2 T hemp seeds
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4-1/2 C water (adjust to your preference)
- S&P, to taste
- Optional garnish: radish, cilantro, red pepper flakes, freshly ground pepper
Toss everything in a Vitamix (or regular blender) and blend until smooth.
Adjust spices and liquid to your preference.
You guys should see my Reader. I missed you guys and I have a LOT to catch up on!
