DETOX PUMPKIN SOUP
Healthy Cooking with Kamalaya: Detox Cuisine
This hearty, flavoursome soup is high in the essential amino acid, tryptophan which promotes serotonin production in the body and supports healthy sleep. It also contains carotenoids which fight free radicals and help prevent premature ageing, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. Pumpkin also contains Vitamin A for healthy eyes, potassium to help reduce the risk of hypertension, and zinc for healthy bones and the immune system. *When following a detox program, it is important not to cook with oils for longer than one minute, however a small drizzle of organic extra virgin coconut oil at the end of cooking –as with this pumpkin soup – can actually support the detox process.
The signs of adrenal burnout are often hard to diagnose correctly, since they seem like part of everyday life. But if you suffer from an afternoon energy crash that is followed by a boost of energy late in the evening, you should take a closer look.
The water of a fresh, young coconut replenishes and cools the body while basil and pineapple support digestion, making this drink a perfect accompaniment to any meal on our detox menu.
