Protein needs will vary greatly from person to person and a mound of meat is not only unnecessary, expensive, and heavy to have at every meal, it can also be very harsh on your immune system and digestion. I would encourage you to experiment with proteins and find what works for you the best. 

Alkalizing Protein Soup

Vegan - Alkaline - No Sugar - Paleo - Gluten Free - Autoimmune Friendly


  • 1 16 oz bag of organic frozen peas
  • 2 C organic vegetable broth
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 3 Tbl Hemp seeds (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 tsp Lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbl Parsley (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tbl Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea/Himalayan Salt to taste (start with 1/2 tsp and then season to taste)
  • Black Pepper to taste


  1. In a sauce pan add the bag of peas and cover with the vegetable broth.
  2. Heat on high until the peas are heated through (about 3-5 minutes).
  3. Pour the peas and broth into a blender.
  4. Be careful blending hot liquids! Leave the top off just a little bit, place a towel over the top of the blender, and start slow.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
  6. Season to taste and adjust accordingly.
  7. Garnish with hemp seeds for added texture and protein.
This soup contains multiple sources of protein:
Hemp- Proteins found in hemp are similar to proteins found in the human body. Hemp has natural occurring omega 3’s, in a healthy 3:1 ratio, is rich in edestin which aids in digestion, and has albumin proteins which are similar to egg whites.
Peas-  While peas do not contain all the aminos to make it a complete protein their unique phytonutrients  provide us with  antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. When paired with rice or hemp a complete protein is formed with out the acidity impact of animal products. 
Avocados- You may not associate avocados with protein but a half of one will provide 4g of protein! This may not seem like much, but even a small amount of protein (especially when paired with fat) will keep your appetite at bay for longer periods.
