View Full Version : Ann Wigmore?s Energy Soup HELP please!!!
03-20-2006, 01:25 AM
I read the recipe from her website. I thought that baby greens were grown in soil, but after I got my bulk seed, I asked for help on how to grow them. I was told just to sprout the seeds (except sunflower and buckwheat). I sprouted them but they werenÂ’t exactly green, as in baby Â“greens.Â” Anyway, I ordered her book Â“The Blending BookÂ” from the bookstore. IÂ’m told the recipe is in there, but should I order her Â“Sprouting BookÂ” instead for the automatic sprouter instructions or does Â“The Blending BookÂ” have it? :confused:
Approximately how much liquid (water/apple juice) should be used in Energy Soup? :confused:
For you who consume the Energy Soup, how much other food do you eat? I drink fresh wheatgrass juice and fresh apple juice everyday and after that plus her energy soup (I am using mature greens until I can get the baby greens grown on a regular basis) I eat a little of other stuff usually early in the day and by the time IÂ’m on my 4th and 5th cup of energy soup IÂ’m so full. Plus I want to add Rejuvelac. ItÂ’s hard to get other food in. IÂ’m wondering if IÂ’m getting enough regular fruits and vegetables? :confused:
Also IÂ’m wondering why consume the soup five days a week? Why not every day? :confused:

I can see how you are confused about the baby greens, I'm pretty sure she just means sprouts. Think baby baby greens :D I can't help you out with the books, I don't own them or know anything about em

On the recipe I found, it says to use the liquid as the base, so as much to make it "soupy", I think. Gather together your other ingredients first and slowly add the liquid until it seems soupy, or to your liking.

If you need other fruits and veggies, your body will cry out for them and you will crave them. You can also add other fruits to the recipe, here's a link to variations on the recipe:
The person giving the information mentions to use Bragg's liquid aminos, I wouldn't recommend that because it has naturally forming msg in it, very bad! It also makes a lot of people sick, including myself. If you want a salty flavor, add sea salt.
I'm not sure on why it's only five days a week, wish I could help ya there, but I have no idea :confused:
I hope I helped ya a little bit :)

Energy soup doesn't have to be a recipe - the recipes on the website are just starter ideas. (www.CreativeHealth.us/links/)
Cooked food dishes have recipes because the act of heating causes a chemical reaction, changing the nature of the ingredients, just like we did in science class. Raw food dishes don't require elaborate recipes because there's no heating, thus, no chemical reactions involved. For this reason, raw food recipes can be "taste as you go" and "flavor to taste."
Start with the kinds of greens you like - I use lots of kale, then add romaine lettuce or other greens - usually 3 or 4 greens, and then add a trace of goodies like onions, flax, dulce, and whatever's in the fridge. Then I add an apple for a bland energy soup, but usually use a pear or a banana instead, to make it sweeter and richer. For a real treat I'll use avocado, but I try to only eat 3 or 4 avocados a week.
Experiment until you find combinations you like. But if it isn't tasty, you won't eat it.
You should be eating at least a quart of energy soup every day.
Remember - it should be almost all greens.
Raw food recipes are guidelines, not chemical formulas.
