The air finally got a little cooler and may have stayed around only for a day or so, but as soon as the brisk air showed up, I started cooking soup! I am currently doing the detox with Kate that she created last year after the holiday’s to kick-start our metabolism and re-program our taste buds. You can read all about it here. The menu can get a little monotonousness, since you really only eat fruits and vegetables, so I immediately thought of whipping up some good old fashioned vegetable soup! It is so healthy and with a secret ingredient, lemon juice, that makes it extra flavorful, it is the perfect way to get your daily intake of veggies and eating the rainbow!
Check out my first cooking video tutorial below! Getting this video taping thing down is a bit tricky, and I’m still a work in progress, but I hope you enjoy watching them! As with everything, I hope to get better with a whole lot of practice, so bear with me in the meantime! LOL.
I am trying to eat healthier and fuel my body the way God intended it to be fed. It’s hard, and I long for a Krystal sackful every now and then, but it’s all about balance, commitment and dedication. I have had a constant struggle with weight, as many of us have, and have finally realized it’s a not a diet, but a lifestyle. And the moment you stop that healthy way of life, is when the lb’s creep back on and boy, do they come on so much faster than you can loose them! It’s such a battle and one that I want to be done with for good!
This recipe is so versatile and you can add in whatever your favorite vegetables are. I’ve already cooked it twice this week and added different vegetables each time! From carrots to kale to okra and beyond, there is no right or wrong; just whatever you love most!
[yumprint-recipe id=’9′]Hope you have a wonderful week, Empresses! Let’s meet back here for my favorite Pumpkin cheesecake!!! Remember, when I said it’s all about balance! 😉 I will have to work extra hard at the gym for that slice of holiday goodness, that I am so excited about baking this week!!!
