Delicious Cucumber Soup for Dinner
I made this soup tonight for dinner and I am in love...head over heels...well you get the picture. I gobbled this soup up. I love that it is so light and fresh and delicious! Well, it is still my first day raw on my 30 day challenge and so far so good. I just have really slipped on eating raw since my last challenge was over and so I decided to do a new one to help get me back on track again. I had to go to the grocery store today for the week and my bill was quite expensive this time $80. At least that is expensive for me. One reason it was so expensive was because I bought some prepared items. For example, the farmers market I go to makes vegetable juice and so I bought five small bottles of fresh made veggie juice. I will drink it for the week and this way I don't have to do it myself. I have grown tired to juicing to be honest. I also bought some freshly made guacamole. I will sometimes do this to treat myself so I don't have to make it myself. They make it fresh and it is oh so good...Other items I purchased were: watermelon, cherries, celery, oranges, avocados, grapefruit, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peaches. Here is my recipe. I hope you get a chance to try it!
