There’s just something about soup. It’s so satisfying to slurp up on these cold, blustery days of late and also a great way to sneak in an extra boost of wellness during this season when many of us are can be feeling under the weather. Plus, filling, low-calorie soups, like my Turmeric Carrot Tomato Soup, can be a smart way to hit the reset button on your diet after the holiday free for all.
So, in the spirit of it being National Soup month, cold & flu season, and time to get back on the clean eating wagon, get all the details on my easy-to-make, Paleo, dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan friendly recipe – Turmeric Carrot Tomato Soup. Continue reading →
January is National Soup Month, so I’ve been busy making a new pot of healthy, hearty and warming comfort every couple days – I will share everything in a Soup Roundup soon! Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy my latest creation – Thai Carrot Crab Noodle Soup! It’s so delicious and packed with oodles of healthy veggie ingredients along with brown rice noodles. I’ve used crab in the recipe (mainly I was looking for an excuse to eat crab), but shrimp or chicken would make perfectly acceptable and yummy substitutes.
Y’all know with my busy family, work and fitness training schedule, I’m a convenience lover – but keep in mind I stock up on HEALTHY helpers, not your typical sodium, sugar and fat-loaded convenience products. Some of the convenience ingredients I’ve used in the soup recipe to reduce prep time include the Power Blend from Mann’s Vegetables (a blend of Brussels sprouts, Napa cabbage, kohlrabi, broccoli, carrots and kale) and Odowalla 100% Carrot Juice. I also used Better that Bouillon Vegetable Base and the Thai Brown Rice Pad Thai Noodles from Explore Asian (see my past recipes), as I find they taste super and the texture holds up really well!
I’m also sticking to my intention to #KeepFitFun in 2016 with handstand and backbend practice – just like I was some sort of kid!
