Earth Loving Green Gazpacho

Energy goes where attention flows, is an amazing transformational mantra to live by. Let’s cultivate healing of our mother earth,  and focus on ways to open up the process.

Here are a few eco tips for you to consider:

Eat organic: Organic crops are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Choosing organic foods is a great way to boost your health and the health of the planet.

Go green as you clean: Most commercial cleaning products contain toxins that are not only harmful to your health, but they are damaging our environment. Switch to natural ingredients such as, white vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice for a fresh, clean home.

 Bring your own bag: Shopping with reusable bags made from canvas, cloth or nylon instead of paper or plastic is a simple way to reduce pollution and shrink your environmental impact.

Switch to cold water: Did you know that almost 90% of energy consumed by the washing machine is from heating water? By simply washing your clothes in cold water you’ll save energy and money.

Green Gazpacho Soup for EARTH DAY

  • 4 large cucumbers, (peeled and seeds removed, chopped into large pieces)
  • 2 Cups of clean water
  • 2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and scooped out
  • 3 medium garlic cloves
  • 2 medium green bell peppers, chopped in large pieces
  • 4 green onions, chopped in large pieces
  • Juice of 1-1/2 lemons
  • 1/3 small bunch fresh cilantro  or herbs of choice
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Paprika
  • drizzle of olive oil

 

Set aside a few sprigs of optional herbs for garnish. In a food processor or blender, add cucumber, avocado, garlic, peppers, and green onions. (If using a blender rather than a food processor, add the cucumbers slowly at first, blending as you go, so there’s a liquid base for the other ingredients.) Blend until creamy, adding water a little at a time to reach desired consistency. Add lemon juice, cilantro, salt, pepper, and cayenne.  Serve with paprika, olive oil, and herbs for garnish. ENJOY! 🙂
