Something old, something new, something borrowed & something stew!

DATE: 2013-02-05

It’s a bit of an exaggeration to call it old, but I’m in the midst of Revitalize: A TrulyFood Winter Cleanse with my partner, the talented chef, Andrea Livingston. It’s our FOURTH consecutive year leading this particular winter cleanse and this year we’re joined by over 100 cleansers from around the globe.


The TrulyFood Seasonal Cleanses have been wildly successful and participants keep coming back for another opportunity to:

  • cleanse their internal detoxification organs for better sleep and energy

  • eat delicious food that satisfies the heart and soul &

  • receive all the support they need to achieve their cleansing needs!

Join us this season for a winter wonderland of comfort for your taste buds and adrenals.

I want to give you a taste of one of Andrea Livingston’s creations so you can get a taste of one of the fantastic recipes included in the Revitalize Cleanse.

West African Creamy Yam Soup


1/4 cup peeled chopped fresh ginger

4 1/2 cups water

3 garlic gloves peeled and chopped

1 onion chopped

3 large carrots sliced

1 large yam/sweet potato peeled and cubed

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

3/4 cup creamy smooth raw almond butter

4 cups ginger broth (see below)

2 1/2 cups tomato juice (I recommend Bionaturae Organic Strained tomatoes blended to 2 1/2 cups)

dash of cayenne

1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar

sliced scallions

pumpkin seeds

to make broth:

Place ginger and 4 1/2 cups water in a medium pot and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, covered for 30 minutes to an hour until broth is strong. Skim out ginger and set aside. preparation:

In a large soup pot place garlic, onion, carrot, yam, ginger broth and cayenne (optional). If broth has reduced make sure vegetables are covered by adding water. Bring to a boil, reduce and simmer for 15-30 minutes until vegetables are tender. Working in batches, blend or puree vegetables and broth with the almond butter. Return to pot. Add tomato juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and stir in sea salt, lemon juice and coconut palm sugar (optional). Let simmer for a few more minutes and remove from heat. Spoon into bowls and top with chopped scallions and pumpkin seeds.
