Energy Soup

About two years after my diagnosis, still dying, I was led to the Creative Health Institute, an Ann Wigmore based raw food healing retreat... There I learned many wonderful things concerning raw food, its healing properties, and most especially the power of chlorophyll. Below you'll find precious information from Dr. Ann's library... Read it, enjoy, use it... gi

The Secret to Healing - Ann Wigmore

There are five secrets to Energy Soup: the blending, the baby greens, the bean sprouts, their freshness, and the frequency.

For Energy Soup to work – help you get free of pain and lose weight – you must blend both greens and sprouts, fresh home-grown every day, on five days a week, for five weeks – preferably for a year.

The most powerful healers are wild weeds and the home-grown baby leafy greens – like alfalfa, broccoli, buckwheat greens, cabbage, clover, fenugreek, garlic, green pea shoots, kale, lettuce, mizuna, mustard, onion, radish, spinach, sunflower greens, turnip and watercress.  Anything you see as a mature green, you can grow as a high-energy 5-day-old baby green in an automatic Sprouter.  Use organic seeds only.

You need bean sprouts too because they're high in vitamins E and C, and have different minerals from greens – beans are rich in organic iron, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, sulfur and copper, while greens have boron, chlorine, iodine and silicon.  Both greens and beans are good calcium, potassium, and magnesium sources – needed for our bones and muscles, nerve transmissions, and electrolyte balance.

Sprouted beans are the absolute best source of protein on earth.  They’re higher in protein than cooked beans because the DNA in a sprout is busy making new proteins for the plant’s growth.  These proteins are pre-digested into amino acids so they’re easy to absorb – no gas here!  When healing, you need these proteins to build new tissue.  Energy Soup re-builds and cleanses-detoxifies.

Any Side Effects?

Energy Soup is the cheapest, most potent medicine on earth.  It has no known side effects, in any dose (except with Refsum's, a rare genetic disease where a person cannot eat chlorophyll).

You may crave sweet after the Energy Soup.  It's high in protein as free-form amino acids.  They're all jostling at the same time for absorption, big tryptophan gets pushed to the back, your brain signals for more, and simple sugars help tryptophan get through – one reason we add apple to the blend. (Simple sugars shuttle all the smaller amino acids into your cells for use as energy, so tryptophan has a clear path.)

At first after Energy Soup, I was miserably driven to my local baker for cream croissants – for 28 years I was a sugar junkie.  But in one year that same Energy Soup chased my tormentor away.  Miraculously, in a few weeks I saw light at the end of my tunnel, for the first time in my life.

Today for dessert, I eat home-made soya or almond yogurt with banana.  Sometimes I add concentrated apple juice or home-made chocolate sauce to the soya yogurt.  The marriage of tart and sweet twists your tongue in delight!

If you get the runs from Energy Soup, or nausea when you eat soon after, have small amounts over hours, not a lot all at once.  Greens are the best colon cleanser!  Refrigerate what you don’t eat at once, but finish it within five hours.

If you get muscle cramps, it may be a magnesium-calcium imbalance. Greens have both, but are higher in magnesium.  Drink calcium-rich seed milks, with essential fats for brain and nerves.

How Long Does It Take to Heal?

You experience wonders in your first month.  It motivates you to keep going – you feel so good.
Then two to four years is the average for most body-minds to re-balance completely.

The more you want to be free of pain, or lose weight, the more you should blend greens and sprouts, and eat fresh plant foods.  Begin today to grow baby greens and bean sprouts at home.  An automatic Sprouter does it all!

Give every cell in your body a chance to heal itself, and play the purest notes in your symphony.

Best time of day for Energy Soup is morning.  It raises your metabolic rate, so you burn more calories through the day.  The chlorophyll and enzymes help in your elimination cycle (4 a.m. to 12 noon).

ENERGY SOUP (HIGH ENERGY NOURISHMENT) is best taken about five times per day in small amounts (1 cup or less per serving). For variety you can put into the Energy Soup 1/2 cup of cut-up banana or some alfalfa sprouts so there is something to chew. Chewing is important so that the food mixes with the saliva and thus the body can better begin the digestive process.


We will begin with a list of the basic ingredients and amounts. But this is to be used only as a guideline. Generally, I do not like to specify amounts and measurements - use your own judgment and allow for your own creativity. It's best to occasional add different ingredients such as peeled cactus, sweet potatoes or carrots, but the basic ingredients should be included. The most important elements and the ones that you will use in the largest quantity are the greens.

BASIC INGREDIENTS : Seaweed (dulse) Rejuvelac, Sprouts - mung beans, green peas, lentils (one handful is a good amount)

A large amount of a variety of organic greens Peeled apples or watermelon, including rind, or papaya alfalfa

PREPARATION : Put your soup or salad in a blender, put about 1 tablespoon of dulse (if dulse is granulated use one teaspoon) and add about 1/4 to 1/3 blender full Rejuvelac (it may be necessary to later use more if the blender has problems handling the ingredients). Put in all of the ingredients that are tough and hardest to break down such as the sprouted mung, peas and lentils, sweet potatoes and carrots (if you should use sweet potatoes or carrots). Blend...

Next, add lots of greens. The most important greens to use are the greens from your indoor garden such as sunflower greens and buckwheat lettuce. Other greens such as cilantro, watercress, parsley, celery (parsley and celery greens should be blended with the tougher ingredients because they take longer to break down) and carrot greens can be used. Any healthy organic greens can be used. Kale greens can be bitter tasting. Some people prefer milder tasting greens so use your own judgment to suit your needs. Fill the blender as full as possible and blend the greens lightly. Turn the blender off and allow the contents to "settle down". Keep adding greens and blending them lightly until there is about 1 1/2 inch of space left at the top of the blender. For taste, add one or two peeled/cored apples or some papaya. In Puerto Rico, we use papaya and in Boston we use apples or watermelon rind when in season. The last thing that goes into the soup is 1/2 or 1 whole avocado to thicken it. Blend the entire soup. If avocado is not used, then almond cream or soaked sunflower seeds can be used.

Go for an Energy Soup 4-5 days a week.  Anything – once a week – is better than nothing.  Energy Soup creates a new body-mind, and new taste-buds.  A NEW YOU.
