Adrenal Recovery Soup

This recipe is dedicated to Daniel Garza of Las Vegas, NV who has taste tested and approved it,  although admitting it was a little bland-therefore the option for No Salt or Nu Salt.  Thank you Dan!

This high-energy soup, called “Taz,” comes from Dolores S. Downey's “Balancing  Body Chemistry with Nutrition” seminars and has proved helpful in adrenal support.

Makes about 10 cups


16 oz. fresh green beans
1 cup chopped celery
1 zucchini, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup (organic)  tomato juice
1 cup spring water
2 tbsp. raw honey
1 tsp. paprika
1 cup (organic or homemade) low sodium chicken broth

35 cals per cup

Simmer all ingredients in a large pot until veggies are tender.  Season to taste with No Salt or Nu Salt (potassium chloride supplement, not contraindicated for most people but ask your physician if you have kidney problems)

I have modified this recipe slightly to decrease possible contaminants in canned green beans and conventional canned tomatoes to amplify the health promoting qualities for the adrenals.
