Enjoy a Cool Tomato Soup On a Hot Summer Day

Tasty cold tomato soup is refreshing, nutritious, tastes divine and great for a hot summer day.  This is a one bowl serving so if you are making it for two, double the recipe.

The red of Tomatoes is what makes them full of health benefits, even when you are enjoying them as a tomato soup or tomato sauce. Tomatoes are fat burning, help prevent cancer, and are a very heart-healthy food.

I love adding garlic to this tomato soup. To get the most health benefits from Garlic, let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, after cutting and before eating or cooking.  Waiting for 5 – 10 minutes allows the health-promoting allicin to form.  If you do not let it sit, allicin is never formed, so it is worth the wait. Add some garlic to your soups, stews, and salad dressing recipes to lower high cholesterol.  Sometimes it is easier to use some Organic Freeze Dried Garlic so no chopping and peeling. 

Olive oil was referred to as “Liquid Gold” by the famous Greek poet Homer.  If you are what you eat, what would happen if you consumed “Liquid Gold” daily?  Extra-virgin olive oil (cold-pressed) is the best fat to use as a salad dressing.  Do not use for cooking.  It has a low smoke point and heat makes it susceptible to oxidative damage.  Olive oil has so many health benefits I include a little every day when I eat my salad or in my cooking.

Lemons’ health benefits are immense.  To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.

Almonds are very tasty and so beneficial for our health. They are one of my favourite nuts; most mornings I add 7 to 10 almonds to my breakfast.

Cucumbers are the perfect summer veggie that keeps your body hydrated, strong, and happy.  They hydrate your body and help to flush out toxins. They are good for treating high blood pressure and for weight loss and may help fight cancer and reduce the risk of heart disease.  They are highly alkaline-forming and may help reduce cholesterol and help with diabetes.

Spike Seasoning which are all full of healthy benefits. So there you see, this soup is full of superfoods.
