“For years I have craved sugary foods, but didn’t know why. When I saw the local community center was offering a program on Stressed Out Bodies; Cravings, What Are These About I was intrigued to learn more. Michelle Sanderbeck's presentation helped me to understand why my body was craving certain foods and how to give my body the food and nutrients it needs so that I won’t crave the foods that I know that are not good for my health.” Andrew S.


3 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped (about 3 cups)
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped (about 2 cups)
1 red bell pepper, chopped (about 1 cup)
1 medium onion, chopped (about 11/4 cups)
3 cups canned tomato juice
2 tablespoons fresh herbs (such as tarragon, thyme, or parsley), chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Kosher salt
Cayenne pepper
1 cup croutons, to garnish

  1. In a bowl, reserve 2 tablespoons each of the tomato, cucumber, pepper, and onion to garnish.

2. In the food processor or blender, purée the remaining ingredients (except the croutons) until smooth, adjusting the seasoning to taste with lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper.

3. Cover and chill thoroughly, at least 3 hours but preferably overnight. Adjust the consistency as desired with water. Serve in chilled bowls garnished with the reserved vegetables and croutons.
