How you feeling? Are you hanging in there? I’m feeling a little taxed myself. Physically and emotionally. A lot is swirling around in the universe right now. When this happens I crave two things. Carbs and wine, and couch time. And also, all the nourishing, detoxifying, vibrant, filling plant-based foods. Like, a bowl of vegan lentil soup doused with parsley sauce.
Insert, The Perfect Blend by Tess Master. A plant-forward, pro-blender, cookbook for health and vitality. The pages are filled with balanced, easy to tackle recipes aimed to energize and revitalize. Tess’s Gentle Lentils called my name loud and clear.
In the book they are topped with a Basil-Is-The-Bomb Sauce. And while that’s something I’ll be making plenty of May – October, I thought this lemony, detoxifying parsley sauce made a little more sense for right now.
Parsley contains all the vitamins and minerals essential for detox. Vitamin C, beta-carotene, chlorophyll, vitamin K, and folate. It helps eliminate salt build-up in the kidneys. And allows the body to purge accumulated poisons like mercury, cadmium, and lead. Besides this parsley sauce, I enjoy this parsley oil and parsley in my green smoothie. I actually find it to be a highly underused and rated herb.
Go buy Tess’s book. Eat yourself happy!
