Cold soups are very easy to make and they make a perfect meal for a hot summer day. If you listened to our interview with Robyn Webb, an award winning cookbook author with tips on How to Eat, Feel and Look Sexy in Summer, you already know that she likes Cucumber Soups.
I would like to share with you this healthy Cucumber Soup recipe I adopted from www.thedailygreen.com and which you can use as one of my favorites to make you feel and look fabulous during a swimsuit season. Cucumbers and radishes are rich in silica which helps reduce wrinkles. They both can also be used to detox and cleanse your intestines to maintain glowing skin.
