While living in the far north of India at the base of the Himalayas, I noticed how incredibly strong-boned both the men and women were who worked in the tea plantations each day. Even those who were in their 70's and 80's showed no signs of arthritis, rheumatism or osteoporosis.

I asked why and was given a simple, very nourishing soup to try. It is the famous "Strong Bones Soup" from Simla, India. It is high in all the bone-building minerals Calcium, Strontium and Boron, plus the high Magnesium content from the Life Transfusion Liquid Minerals the body uses to convert the Calcium into bones.

Serves 4

2 quarts soy milk (ALWAYS organic)
1 large bunch watercress or a standard package from the supermarket
1 large red potato with skin
3 small shallot onions
1 Tbsp. virgin olive oil
6 vegetarian bouillon cubes
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp. liquid minerals

1. In a large pot, mince and saute the shallots in the olive oil until carmelized.
2. Slice the potato and course chop the watercress.
3. Bring the soy milk to a light, gentle boil.
4. Crumble the bouillon cubes into the soy milk.
5. Add the potato and watercress, simmer for 3-5 minutes.
6. Add the Liquid Minerals.
7. Puree the mixture through a food processor or blender.
8. Add Bragg Liquid Aminos and pepper to taste.
