I missed sharing a recipe in time for Super Blood Moon Eclipse, but just want to affirm that this is a very special time in our history, and if you are interested in bettering yourself and, in effect, the Earth, you are participating in a world of change and heightening the collective consciousness. So thank you!
Today I bring you a super special recipe, one that I absolutely enjoy making for others (I’m a bit of a soup fiend, not going to lie) because it’s incredibly satiating and delicious.
Did you know? As Food Babe shares in her article “One simple trick to help you eat less,” including all six flavors in meals when you prepare them helps you to feel more satiated and eat less. It’s an Ayurvedic concept but holds ground in a variety of philosophies – including Chinese medicine.
Every food has its own energy and effect in the body, so taking care to not be ‘extreme’ with dietary choices is important – and also a reason I do not support ‘fad’ diets, for they can eventually contribute to yin/yang imbalances and psychological issues, as well.
Anyways, the reason I shared that interesting bit of information is because this soup is perfectly balanced with all six tastes shared below:
That makes it pretty awesome, right? Well in addition to being delicious, absolutely. Enjoy the following recipe – it’s quite simple and worth the effort. :]
