Protein-rich Emerald Soup

June 01, 2016

protein rich soupAuthor: 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. Unlike green juice, green smoothies & soups maintain fiber content & allow for the addition of a protein source, like grass-fed collagen or pea protein. They are also “warming” to the GI tract, and more digestible than juices for many.


1-2 small green zucchini, roughly chopped (approx. ½ inch rounds)
½ small onion or 1 medium shallot chopped
1 bunch spinach or ½ bag frozen organic spinach, thawed
1/2-1 avocado
1 handful mixed green herbs: parsley, cilantro, basil (optional)
1-2 c broccoli florets, chopped (optional)
6-8 cups of Detox Broth &/or water + Pea Protein or Grass-fed Collagen Hydrosylate
Himalayan pink salt or high quality sea salt
Nutmeg—preferably whole with a grater, or powder
Freshly ground pepper


In a medium to large sauce pan, sauté onions in olive or coconut oil over moderate heat, until they start to turn translucent.

Add zucchini & broccoli, & sauté until just the outside of the zucchini starts to turn translucent.

Add the spinach & wilt. Cover with liquid & bring to a boil, then simmer for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Turn off heat & add chopped avocado & herbs, if utilizing.

Blend soup, using a hand blender or Vitamix (Vitamix gives the soup a silky texture).

Add salt & pepper to taste. Grate 3 strokes of nutmeg into the soup & stir (use just a small pinch if powdered).

Add approximately 1 tbsp of Collagen or Pea Protein for each cup of soup you consume. Drizzle with olive oil or add a dollop of pesto as desired.

Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
Catherine - San Francisco
Extra-Level Respiratory Support

Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
