Summer Salad, Juicing and Potato Kale Soup

If you are trying to figure out what to do what all of your summer squash~try this salad.  You can eat it as is or use it to top your garden salad. This salad is delicious and refreshing and NO doesn't need any.

Summer Salad

1 large zuchinni~matchsticks or chopped
1 small yellow squash ~matchsticks or chopped
1 small red onion diced
1 c. of grape tomatoes halved
2 large pieces of garlilc~minced
real salt
fresh ground pepper
balsamic vinegar
Mix and let marinate for a few hours in fridge.

 For the past several weeks I have not been juicing and I can feel a difference, so I juiced today~

swiss chard
liquid stevia

I have also been eating a bit more cooked foods since I began working out. Knowing that this creates a more acidic state than I am used to, I am wondering if this is the source of the wrist pain I have been experiencing.  It seems that after I stopped juicing is about the same time the wrist pain hopefully by eating a more alkaline diet with less cooked foods, juicing and staying super High Raw, the  problem will be remedied.

My family still eats more cooked foods than I do, so I made Potato Soup as a special request from my son today..
This is a recipe I created a few years ago that  is one of my family's favorites

Potato Kale Soup

Using a food processor slicing attachment (on the same attachment as the shredder-just upside down)
1 vadalia onion
2 large carrots
2 stalks of celery
2 -3 potatoes (I used Yukon Gold today)
sometimes I shredd a bit of cabbage (optional)
I put each item in the stockpot as I go and then fill it with the appropriate amount of water to cover and then some.
add: 5 heaping T. of Seitenbacher veggie broth powder or use unchicken broth and skip the water
2 T. dried parsley
pinch of cayenne pepper
a couple shakes of poultry seasoning herb
salt to taste

bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to simmer until it is al dente...
then add 3 -4 c. of shredded Kale stir kale into soup and it is ready to serve.

If you want to make this creamy you can add some Vegenaise..

I am currently working on phase 3 of P90X... and power walking 2-3 days a week...add to that my cleaning job in which I normally work it pretty vigorously for at least 4 hrs. two days a week.
