Making your own V8 Vegetable Juice is so empowering! We call it V10 as we added a couple extra vegetables. Simply blend, heat and drink hot (our favorite) or cold. Delicious, incredibly healing, cleansing and nutritious. We cannot get enough and will even drink it for breakfast. My husband is such a humongous fan even preferring it to a can of V8. You literally drink an entire blender full of vegetables. Spinach, parsley, celery, onion, garlic, beet, carrot, tomatoes, lime and bell pepper are combined together harmoniously. We leave the pulp for added health but straining yields perfect juice-like results, both are wonderful.
V10 Vegetable Juice is:
Enjoy the life-affirming health benefits! With lots of Love & Light, Christa

This last week we had a cold front come blasting through with a slight cold to go with it. We needed something warm and healing to bring our bodies back to health. With the wonderful news of having The Artistic Vegan Cookbook translated to French I thought it would be appropriate to begin trying recipes from French speaking areas which is where this soup came in. A fusion of cinnamon, allspice, ginger, pepper, garlic, chili, tomatoes, carrots, chick peas and more create a hearty soup that is full of flavor. My husband and I both found it to be even better on day 2 as the flavors marinated together.
We served ours with homemade vegan buns which were gluten-free and perfect for dipping into the soup. It created a wholesome, all-in-one meal that was warmly welcomed on such a cold swept day. No matter the weather or if you feel ill or fantastic this soup is bound to make you feel even better. I hope you enjoy this soup!! Love, Christa

To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
Warm up with a big bowl of purifying soup rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This soup contains many veggies that regulate blood sugar, boost immunity, aid in digestion and may even offer anti-cancer benefits. Cleanse your body from harmful metals and enrich yourself with over 10 cups of vegetables with 10 different varieties.
Carrots, celery, garbanzo beans, garlic, fresh herbs, jalapeno slices, onion, spinach, tomatoes and zucchini with hints of paprika are simmered together. The scent is heavenly and the leftovers are just as good if not better. In fact I snapped these pictures on day 2. This one is a keeper, I hope you love it!
From my heart and kitchen to yours...love,
There is nothing a like a big comforting bowl of "chicken" noodle soup to soothe your body in the cold of winter, especially when you are feeling a little under the weather. We recently traveled to some ancient sites in Mexico and in all the different modes of transportation and human contact I caught a small bug and then passed it to my husband. The first thing I did was buy a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, made ginger tea made from freshly peeled ginger root, and recipes with lots of garlic, onions and herbs. Nothing sounded quite as good as a big bowl of "chicken" noodle soup yet without the traditional chicken and instead with extra veggies, noodles and a surprise ingredient for protein. The results were irresistibly delicious, a very good soup that is satisfying, hearty, filling and flavorful. It makes you feel good which is perfect if you aren't feeling 100%, and if you are it will make you feel even better. I'm pleased to announce we're both feeling much better. I love that this recipe is full of nutrient rich vegetables. I would make it again and recommend it to you! Whether you are feeling like a superhero or have a little cold, this soup is a great recipe to have on hand this season for a healthy body!

"This is some of the best potato soup I've ever had, baby!" exclaimed my husband after finishing his bowl of soup. Creamy, lush, silky potato base with soft potatoes, black beans and roasted potatoes on top. My husband especially loved the roasted potatoes on top as it was like having fries with your soup stating it reminded him of what you would get at Marie Calendar's giving it a 10 out of 10! I agree, this soup is amazing, incredible, hearty, warming, filling, superb, a winner, vegan comfort food that will leave you satisfied. OMGosh it is good!
It almost reminded me of how creamy clam chowder soup is yet with soft potatoes instead of clams. :0) This soup was made with very few ingredients as I had very few on hand. The result? Potato perfection! I really don't like missing out on things, and I feel like you'd be missing out if you didn't join me in making this soup! I am thankful for the inspiration to create this recipe, yum! Enjoy!

Tomato Vegetable Soup is loaded with savory flavors. The onions, garlic and mushrooms are sauteed until the aroma fills the kitchen. Tomatoes and heaping handfuls of fresh oregano are added for an unforgettable experience. I made this soup on a creative inspired thought. What if I took my homemade pasta sauce and created a soup version? That is essentially what happened in the kitchen. I love following those "what if" ideas to fruition as they usually stem in a one of a kind creation. I could absolutely see serving this to others with a smile, it's share-worthy! So much so I made a quick video (less than 2 min) so you can share with your loved ones! Enjoy!
I call this Tatiana Sopa since we stayed in a casa dedicated to Tatiana Proskouriakoff while at my husband's conference at the Hacienda Chichen. Tatiana helped decipher the Mayan hieroglyphs and writing system as well as create very impressive reconstructive drawings. The soup is filled with potatoes, beans, colored red with beets, flavored with onions, garlic, touches of pepper and zucchini for a simple and satisfying soup. We had it twice since we enjoyed it so much, it makes you feel wonderful. I hope you enjoy this new healthy soup!

Peaceful Jungle Love Preparation:
This soup was inspired by a desire for powerful healing spices from India for a bold flavor combined with the cleansing effect of cabbage. It is filled with holistic herbs such as curry, turmeric, ginger and more with crushed garlic, onions, cabbage and a touch of jalapeno for spice. I recently watched The Hundred-Foot Journey which is a lovely movie based on a family who moves from India and open a restaurant in France against great odds. The movie left a big desire for more Indian food and thus this soup was born. Flowing with the essence of love and hopes for healing I decided upon naming it Parvati's Cabbage Soup. Parvati is the Hindu Goddess of love, fertility and devotion, whom wed Shiva. I feel this soup was inspired and it is my way of saying thank you to the Indian Culture for such delicious spices! This soup is cleanse-worthy, healing, flavorful and a touch spicy. Also fitting on my mom's birthday who is like a Goddess the way she offers so much love to so many people and is devoted to my father. Happy Birthday Mom!
