Solstice Potato Soup

Serves 8 |

In Kundalini Yoga, food is very important. The Winter and Summer Solstices are seen energetically as a New Year, and are the perfect time to cleanse. 

The Solstice Potato soup is slightly alkalizing to the body, keeping the body healthy and light, and the mind clear for sadhana.
