Recipe – Gingered Squash Soup

With 2018 marking the 20th anniversary of Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo’s Cook Right 4 Your Type, we thought it the perfect time to highlight one of the over 200 original recipes from the book. To keep in tune with the season, we picked a Gingered Squash Soup (pg. 231-232), a warm and hearty dish that is highly beneficial for all blood types!

Gingered Squash Soup

[ Serves 4-6 ]


  • 1 large butternut squash (or any squash Right 4 Your Type)
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups of water or turkey stock (your preference)


Carefully peel squash. Most squash tend to be quite hard, so caution is advised in the initial preparation. Always cut flat side down. Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Seeds can be set aside for roasting, as they’re not only delicious but a valuable source of zinc. Continue to cut squash into smaller pieces until you have manageable cubes. Peel cubes with a small, sharp knife. Cut into pieces and place in a heavy-bottomed pot. Add garlic, ginger and salt. Cover with water or turkey stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the squash is tender and easily pierced with the tip of a knife. Transfer mixture into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.


If you wake up in the morning feeling tired, sluggish and you can’t seem to face food to break your fast, then you may be detoxing. Detoxification is performed every minute of every day by various organs in an orchestration worthy of Carnegie Hall – but more so at night. But if your body is overloaded with processed food and chemicals, then you may need to help it out. If you happen to be fasting, the body, no longer busy with digestion, absorption and assimilation of food, will turn to detoxification. Chemicals that were stored away in fatty tissue for safety are released to be neutralized by the liver and eliminated. Be aware however that there is a step on the way to final elimination that can make those chemicals even more toxic if you don’t have the right detox nutrients.

Also, when trying to lose weight, as fat cells break down, they can release toxins that can make you feel bad and make you abandon your diet.

Or, if you’re on a yeast-free diet, you can experience what is called a Herxheimer reaction from the release of toxins from organisms dying in the millions. Symptoms can include headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, bloating, swollen glands, joint pain, and skin breakouts or rashes.

While there are many benefits to detoxing including releasing heavy metal buildup and reducing yeast overgrowth, the potential for detox symptoms is a great deterrent to yeast balancing or other kinds of detox.

So, what can you do to make sure your body’s innate detox facilities run smoothly without totally interrupting your life with detox symptoms? Give your cells and your liver some extra support..
