How to Make Healthy Uncooked Soups

Food is devitalized when it is subject to excessive heat and chemical processing. It loses no value when it is air dried, frozen, warmed, smoked, or pickled with natural spices, organic substances, salt and water; nor when it is transported, or gathered unripe.

Take the so-called "staff of life" - bread. To begin with, the wheat has been so denatured through refining that most of its vital substances have been destroyed. Then it is baked in overheated ovens and the removal of what was left of vital substances is completed.

All the added vitamin pills cannot take the place of the natural ones that have been destroyed.

Enjoy the following soups which all are full of valuable vitamins for vibrant good health. None of these vitamins have been destroyed by cooking!

Tomato Soup

6 ripe tomatoes
1 tablespoon grated onion or scallion
2 cups water
Dash of oregano
1 basil leaf
3 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt and red crushed pepper, as desired

Since B vitamins are water soluble, soups are valuable reservoirs of the vegetable elements. Vitamin B tomatoes help keep the small blood vessels and gum tissue firm.

Liquefy the tomatoes in an electric mixer. Add onion and seasonings, then water. WARM, DO NOT COOK!

1/2 cup raw oatmeal
1 or 2 cups water

Make chicken stock out of wings, neck, and entrails by simmering together with onions and celery for about 5 minutes. Strain the liquid stock and add to the raw chopped or liquefied vegetables. Throw away the chicken and the vegetables that have been simmered. Warm the chicken stock and add the raw vegetables when about to serve.

Green Pea Soup

Liquefy the green peas with a little water in an electric mixer. Warm in a pan the Canadian bacon. Mix the bacon and its own fat with the olive oil and the scallion and heat the entire mixture with the liquefied peas. Add water until you reach desired thickness. Add seasonings to taste.

Enjoy these soups both as a taste treat and as something beneficial to your health.
