Avocado Soup and Shiitake Mushrooms With Brown Rice

Avocados are an excellent source of protein. They provide all 18 essential amino acids that the body requires to form protein. It contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients and beneficial fats that protect the body against damage caused by free radicals. 
Celery is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamins B1, B2, B6, calcium, magnesium, iron and essential amino acids. When you juice celery, nutrients are released in the fiber that aids in digestion. An excellent choice for raw foods are soups. You can simply blend organic vegetables of your choice and serve them up in under 15 minutes. (see recipe below)
