fresh greens soup

Author: Lily Mazzarella
This savory, silky soup is a great way to drink your vegetables, while keeping your blood sugar balanced and your whole system fueled. Liquid meals remove burden from the digestive tract, freeing up resources for repair & restoration in your body. Green soups maintain fiber content & allow for the addition of a protein source, like grass-fed collagen or pea protein.

2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
1/2 small onion or 1 shallot, chopped
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves, stripped from the stem, or ½ tsp dried
2 small (or 1 larger) green zucchini, cut into ½ inch half-moons
4-6 cups broth or water
6 cups roughly chopped mixed salad greens, tightly packed (such as Boston, romaine, arugula,
iceberg, red oak, and/or green oak; if using baby greens, no need to chop!)
1 ½ cups frozen organic shelled sweet peas, thawed
1 avocado
½ preserved lemon
1 generous squeeze lemon
Pink Himalayan salt, freshly ground organic black pepper
Grass-fed collagen or pea protein

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook shallot, onion and thyme, stirring often, until onion is translucent and tender, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to soften, about 4-5 minutes.

Add broth, bring to a boil, and cook until zucchini is tender, 6-8 minutes. Stir in greens and peas, remove from heat, and let sit 10 minutes to allow greens to soften. Add avocado and preserved lemon. Add approximately 1 tbsp collagen or pea protein for each cup of soup. Purée soup in batches in a blender until smooth (or use a hand blender). Season with salt, pepper, and fresh lemon to taste.
 Serve soup topped with Cashew Crema and chopped mixed fresh herbs, or a dollop of Mineral-Rich Pesto.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.

Wonderful class

Isabella is a great teacher and inspires each of us to look at nature and our surroundings to infuse our skin with healing from our own creations. Thank you!

These liquid capsules are genius! Such an easy way to make hawthorne a daily tonic because I can easily take it with my other capsule supplements. The gel caps are easy to swallow. I've even punctured them before out of curiosity and the liquid tastes great. My grandmother started taking them as well because she doesn't like tinctures or tea based herbal remedies.. good alternative

It really works!

I was skeptical at first when I bought this for my partner because he had tried other natural deodorants and they did not have the staying power. We were both pleasantly surprised by how effective this meow meow tweet cream is! It lasts forever too because you can scoop out exactly how much you need each time!

Nervous Gut

When I'm super stressed I tend to hold it in my gut. My digestion will go out of wack during intense times in my life and this bitters blend is critical support for me. After taking a few dropperfuls I can feel the tension slowly start to release in my gut. Helpful for stress induced constipation and indigestion or lack of appetite when my nerves get the better of me.
