Because summer is such a busy time, I decided to make most of the tomatoes into juice. Now during the winter when I am not as busy, I have time to use the juice to make tomato soup or sauce for spaghetti. And . . . there is always plenty to enjoy as a beverage.

This comfort soup is easy to make, very nutritious and as well delicious!

1 large onion, chopped
3 – 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chopped celery
4 cups water
10 cups tomato juice
3 tablespoons “It’s Just Like Sugar” (or 10 drops of stevia)
1 1/2 tablespoons Himalayan salt
3 cups bone broth
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
1/2 cups water
1/4 cup cornstarch

Cook the onion, garlic, and celery in 4 cups water. Add the tomato juice, sugar substitute, salt, bone broth and parsley. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Mix cornstarch and half cup water and stir it into the pot of soup, cooking until it is thickened. Adjust salt & pepper to taste.

The tomatoes, bone broth, onion, garlic and parsley are all very nutritious and provide health for our whole body, helping prevent colds, viruses, flu and many diseases.
I have to say that our household has not had a cold or the flu for quite a few years now so we will continue to eat our own garden grown vegetables & fruits; eat fermented foods, include nutrient packed seeds in our meal plan and take good supplements!

Melvin has been seeing a naturpath doctor just to see how he can best work with the Parkinsons & Macula degeneration. He is omitting sugar, yeast and dairy products because tests showed he has inflammation inside his body. Then a month ago the doctor started him on ozone treatments. After 8 out of the 10 treatments he will get at this time, he has much more energy, walks better, is feeling so much happier and is up doing things during the day. We are so excited and feel that he is starting to get his life back again. We are anxious to see if it will help his eyesight. I will keep you posted in the coming months! Winnie
