Raw Avocado Soup

Every age in a woman’s life calls for its specific nutrition for optimal health and energy. I the April issue of the Bulgarian “The Woman Today” Magazine I am featuring an article on the best nutrition for the woman in her 20s and her 30s.

  1. For the love of god clean everything as much as possible if you’re going to eat anything raw. And cook the peas! Especially if they’re frozen and non fresh! I had a bacterial infection from the peas when I tried this recipe. It has been one of the worst experiences in my life.

    • Dear Linh
      I am really sorry for what you have experienced! Using raw peas is popular in raw cuisine. I have used raw peas many times in this particular soup as well in raw peas hummus without having any problems. Freshly-picked peas (1-2 days after picking) are sweet, with low starch content and suitable for eating raw. This is also true for peas that frozen within a day after picking. It might me that these particular peas that you used were not fresh and that caused the infection. If you are not sure about the quality of the peas or can’t have them organic, it is indeed better to cook them. This actually holds true for any vegetables. The sad truth is that the bacterial infection you experienced can be caused by a number of commercially-grown vegetables including lettuce which is supposed to be eaten exactly raw! It is therefore better to buy organic whenever possible.

  2. This recipe looks fantastic! We’re switching to a whole food, non-processed way of life. It’s so different from our restaurant and fast-food eating habits of the past! Recipes like this help us make our transitioning *so much* easier, thank you for sharing.
