Simple Carrot and Potato Soup

by foodsmarty

Soups are easily digestible and are important to include frequently into the diet if you are cleansing or healing your GI tract. If you are doing a cleanse spend a week prior to the cleanse eating easily digestible soups along with raw fruits and vegetables. Limit nuts and fats while eating no meat or dairy or alcohol or caffeine (Seriously, Arrrg!)

This soup is so delicious it is hard to believe it is so simple to make. If you are on a macrobiotic diet substitute taro root or rutabaga or rice for the potatoes.


4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

3 carrots, peeled and diced

1 t salt and pepper

1 T olive oil

2 cups green cabbage, cut into slices

1 T parsley, fresh

1 t thyme leaves

2 sage leaves


Use enough water to cover 1-2 inches above the volume of vegetables and turn on medium heat for 30 minutes. Add fresh herbs at the last ten minutes of cooking.
