We’re living in unprecedented and troubled times. It’s heart-breaking. It’s heavy. It’s tragic. And it’s time to stand up and be a part of the solution. As the leaders of the Conscious Cleanse, we firmly stand committed to listening deeply, and to educating ourselves about the issues of systemic racial injustice and inequality. While we don’t have the answers right now, we want you to know that we’re taking this time to reflect on how we can continue to use the Conscious Cleanse platform for good. For now, we remind you (as we are reminding ourselves) that now is the time to take care of your body. Today we have a new recipe for you that we hope will nourish you. Take good care and as always, we are here for you.

Summer is here and as we’re heading into week 1 of our June Group Cleanse, we’re looking for quick, veggie-based meals that don’t heat up the house. When the temperature rises, we reach for refreshing, water-rich summer veggies like cucumbers, and this is the perfect recipe!
This soup is the ideal meal for a hot summer day. The avocado adds a creamy texture and the cucumber, lemon, and dill make the flavor light and refreshing. Pair it with a massaged kale salad and grilled chicken or salmon, top with hemp seeds or pumpkin seeds to make it a meal – or just enjoy it as is as a snack or a lighter lunch/dinner!
This recipe would also be great for purification! Purification weekends are an optional part of our online food-based cleanse program. Simply omit the avocado to follow purification guidelines, and you’re good to go.
Do you have a meal or food that immediately makes you think of summer? Let us know in the comments below! We always love to hear from our community.
