I used to have a seperate blog for posting recipes and discussing different health and wellness tips I've picked up over the years. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I like to share pics of my favorite meals. I've been asked to share recipes so I'm going to begin again today! Rather than have my life scattered across the internet (as I have been since 1996 or so), I've decided to start consolidating and begin sharing here!
4 medium zuccinis chopped
3 lbs green beans (ends snapped)
2 stalks celery chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
4 cups water
1/2 bunch fresh parsely (stems removed)
Salt & pepper to taste
Add water, zuccini, beans, celery, and garlic to stock pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 mins (or until vegetables are soft but not mushy). Add to a blender (you may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your blender). Add parsely to blender. Puree until smooth. Pour into a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste.
There are many varieties of the Bieler broth online for you to search. It was created by Dr. Henry Bieler to help aid in detoxing your body and improving your digestive track. With all the damage my body has endured over the years through stress and poor dieting, I am on a mission to heal internally.
You can Google for more information on Dr. Bieler and read the numerous sites surrounding this particular recipe. I'm not a doctor so I'm not going to list nutritional values, etc. This blog will merely be about the food!
I will add that I was skeptical about the recipe. I'm not a big fan of green foods liquefied (more than likely because I'm not a big fan of the color). But, I had to set aside my doubts and told myself to eat it even if it tasted nasty. I was pleasantly surprised.
It is a little bland which is why I'm glad that I added the garlic in the water to boil, and the salt and pepper to taste in my individual bowl. As for any health benefits...I'm sure time will tell.
