Tomato Sea Veggie Soup

Sea vegetables are superfoods. Soil of mother earth is being de-nutritioned by our practices. Luckily ocean remains untouched to an extent and provides extremely nutritious superfoods in the form of sea vegetables. The contents of minerals in sea water are very close to the contents of minerals of human blood.

The smell of these is gross for many. There are ways to get around it. Our recipes will show you how.

2. 1 Tbsp Coconut butter
