TURKEY VEGETABLE SOUP

TURKEY VEGETABLE SOUP

Happy Saturday, happy weekend, and happy sunshine. I'm enjoying this beautiful weather, but I'm not looking forward to this rain they speak of next week. Well I guess if it's going to cool down again what better way to get through it than with a warm bowl of turkey and veggie soup. I posted a pic on instagram of this soup a couple weeks ago and a lot of people asked for the recipe. Unfortunately this was a "throw whatever's in the fridge in the pot" kind of soup so I'm not too sure what the measurements should be. I'm gonna guestimate for you though, so if anything seems to much or too little try adding or subtracting to your liking. Also, I'm almost a third of the way done with my 21 Day Sugar Detox and going strong. Yesterday I got really sick though and it made things extremely hard. You would think being sick would make it easy, I had no appetite most of the day, but then by the evening I was feeling a bit better and all of a sudden I was starving and had no motivation to cook. I just wanted to grab unhealthy snacks from the cupboard, but I didn't. I baked some chicken and veggies so I didn't have to stand over the stove and monitor anything. So day 6 it is today. Hope you're staying strong as well if you're doing a detox. It will be worth it I promise!

ROASTED PUMPKIN AND ONION SOUP

ROASTED PUMPKIN AND ONION SOUP

Happy Friday! Boy was I ready for the weekend. Or at least for the end of the work day so I could hit up crossfit. My sister asked me if I could send her a picture doing a one-handed handstand. She's made Friday her official one-handed handstand day on instagram so of course I was happy to participate. I wanted to go above and beyond though and do one on a kettlebell. Well that proved harder than expected! But I managed to get one on the parallet bar, which made me very happy until my coach did one on the kettlebell! Always one upping me. So of course I had to beat him in the WOD and I did just that, 419 reps over his 412 (you win some, you lose some) but as long as you win the majority of them!  I'm not competitive or anything. Haha. Tomorrow morning I'm going to do some more practice on the kettlebell handstand so I'll be sure to let you know how I go.

SWEET POTATO AND CAULIFLOWER SOUP

SWEET POTATO AND CAULIFLOWER SOUP

So unfortunately I caught a pretty bad cold this week and all I wanted was a big bowl of soup.  And it had to be simple, and it had to be made with very few ingredients because I didn't have much at home and I didn't have the energy to go to the grocery store.  I remembered having seen a great recipe for a soup with only five ingredients on Manifest Vegan, and happened to have just those five in my house.  Here's how to whip it up.
