Green gazpacho

Green gazpacho

This is the perfect chilled low-carb soup to enjoy in the hot summer months. I used to call it a salad smoothie! Because, really, that’s what it is… all the ingredients to a green salad blended up into a drinkable soup. It’s light, savory and delicious.

Tip!

Soaking the cashews in water with a pinch of salt for 3 hours minimized the phytic acid in them, making them easier to digest.

If you can’t eat cashews, use half of a ripe avocado instead.

Notes

My mother used to make a raw, vegan green gazpacho at her restaurant in Miami, Florida. This is the perfect way to for those who struggle with getting eating vegetables to get nutrition in their bodies. Because the vegetables are blended, not juiced, you get all the beneficial fiber.

The thick consistency of the soup also helps kickstart digestion as you consume it, giving it a slight chew. This liquid lunch won’t spike your blood sugar, but it will deliver a delicious dose of essential nutrients!

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    Instead of the cashews, I used avocados and also added a small piece of jalapeno for a kick. It was delicious!

    Almonds are traditional and lower carb than cashews. Why the change?

    The cashews make it creamier.
