Asparagus Soup

Last weekend I had the opportunity to participate in a wonderful workshop called Renew & Restore: A Conscious Cleanse that included bodycare, yoga and nutrition. Jessica Yoches of Earthly Eating Nutrition shared with us so many invaluable bits of information like the fact asparagus assists our body with detoxification as it contains the highest amount of glutathione than any other food. In the workbook everyone went home with, there were some delicious recipes including this insanely easy and delicious one I modified slightly per my taste. Enjoy!
