When I went to our local Co-op today the leeks were especially beautiful. The asparagus was also alluring in its bright and colorful purple and greens. Mmm…leek & asparagus soup, yes please! In today’s day and age of boxed and processed foods, beautiful fresh vegetables are so enticing. We are a sick nation. A nation full of heart disease, diabetes and other ailments due to our diets. I heard a quote the other day, “If God made it eat it, if man-made it don’t”. That’s a pretty mantra to live by. This Leek & Asparagus Spring Soup will cook up in no time and it’s full of vitamins and fiber! I recently finished reading a book called Eat Dirt by Dr. Axe. The book focuses on why leaky gut may be the root cause of your health problems, and what you can do to reverse it. The book is extremely informative and worth the read.
