Raw Vegan Spinach Soup

The raw food diet has been around since the dawn of time but its popularity has greatly increased in recent years. Interestingly it also had a resurgence in the 17th century. This diet is composed, of course, of mostly or fully raw and unprocessed foods. The food can be warm as long as it doesn’t go above 118°F. There is a reason for this: For raw food diet fans, it is believed that cooking destroys the natural enzymes in foods, which reduces their nutrient content, thus being inferior for one’s health. The primary goal for people getting into this diet is holistic wellness. Food preparations include juicing, blending, dehydrating foods, and sprouting beans and seeds.

Ideas And Tips:

Blendtec is a brand of professional and home blenders. These high-powered digital blenders feature illuminated control pads with preprogrammed cycles. A Blendtec has a dedicated soup button. A single press on this button runs the blender on the highest speed for 90 seconds. The heat comes from the length of blending time combined with the friction from the speed. They recommend blending longer until the desired soup temperature is reached. Hot soup usually takes 2 to 3 cycles. This is just perfect for raw food eaters as their food temperature should not exceed 118°F. A single press on the soup button will give you a creamy consistency without heating the soup too much.
