Ultra Green Soup Recipe

I saw this recipe on myvega.com and I can’t wait to make this. It looks so delicious. I love blending my veggies!. Vega was created by Brendan Brazier. Brendan has a best-selling book call The Thrive Diet, great name huh? He has a wellness program called Thrive, and helps people transform their lives through plant-based nutrition. He is also a vegan endurance athlete and created the Vega line of whole food nutritional products. I personally love the protein powder!
