Ground Yourself- Soup

  • 4-6 cups filtered water ( or bone broth for additional minerals) 
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 large red onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 5 carrots, diced
  • 3 potatoes, russet, sweet, japanese- any kind you like
  • 1 or 2 parsnips
  • 1 turnip
  • Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Sea Salt, pepper and herbs of your choice ( I especially like rosemary and thyme)

I make this soup whenever things in life get wild and crazy, when I feel like my head is off in the clouds and my feet haven’t touched the ground in days. Choose any downward-growing vegetables, pair with a whole grain bread and eat slowly. Preferably while sitting on the earth.
