Sunny Siesta | A Raw Soup
Avocados aren’t red
And oranges aren’t blue
But this soup is sweet
And so are you…
Okay, okay. I’m not a poet and I know it. 😛
But what I can do is serve you up a sunny smile and a yummy new raw soup. I like a little something sweet after my midday siesta, and this is a delightfully light re-energizer to freshen up any day!
It’s so important to make time for ourselves: to sleep, eat well, move, and worship our body temples. We can only brighten up the world if we keep our own flame lit, right?
So go ahead and treat yourself to some sunshine, a smile, a siesta and soup! Sweet dreaming! <3
