I don't know about you but I've been loving the Fall weather as of late. Probably my most favorite season with the leaves turning and days getting cooler. But with that also comes my need for comfort foods and an automatic 5-10 lbs. I'd like to blame my inner cave(wo)man in me and say it's my body's natural instinct to bulk up so that I survive the winter, but who's kidding who. So this year will be different, this year is already different. I will overcome. I will survive. I will eat...SOUP. My Mom's classic veggie soup (with my own personal tweaks) couldn't be easier to make. Veggie Blender Soup: 4 cups of organic veg stock (or any homemade stock) 4 cup of veg (could be a combo or a solo veg) 1 onion 3 cloves garlic 2 tbsp ginger 1 tbsp coconut oil salt & pepper Saute the onion and garlic in the coconut oil for 4 minutes then add the rest Bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour. Bung it all in the Vitamix/blender and voila! Re-dic delish. p.s. Even baby Kits joined me for lunch with her own bowl. It was that good.
