My sister Annette is one of my hero's when it come to being healthy. She has always eaten well and exercised and taken good care of herself. She made this incredible book up for me a few years ago that has charts and healthy ideas that I am using now that I am finally on my road to health.
One of her recipes is a "Popeye Soup". This is a fresh, raw soup that has spinach, cucumber, avocado red pepper, green onions and it is spiced so it almost tastes like a fresh guacamole.
I have to tell you a funny story about this soup...we had a sister week-end a few years back in Texas. Annette, Val, Debi and I. We took turns cooking for each other and Annette made this soup. The rest of us had not had raw greens like that in our systems for a while, so we all got pretty sick to our stomachs...come to think of it, we were probably all detoxing and that is why we were sick. Val had bad gas and they made me, the baby sister sleep in the one room with her! Annette and Debi were crawling down the hall to come scare us, and they couldn't make it all the way into the room because of the thick air in there:). Thanks guys! The next day we were driving to the airport and I was in the back seat with Debi. She got sick to her stomach and "lost" the green soup in her bag. Instead of helping her I was screaming at Cheree, who was in the front with Val to trade places with me so I didn't have to sit by Deb when she was sick...so sorry Deb...I love ya!
