While the weather turns cooler, I love having soups. They are so warming and soothing, aren’t they? My recipe for Simple Vegetable Soup is perfect for a chilly, fall day. The herbs are flavorful and the vegetables are simply packed with vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. Especially when balancing cooked and raw foods, I love this recipe!
Remember, eating for health does not mean sacrificing flavor and comfort foods. Whole healing is about spiritual and emotional wellness just as much as physical wellness. For that reason, I want to share my favorite recipes that support all aspects of wellness with you.
It is amazing to be able to eat foods such as this, yummy, satiating and flavorful, and KNOW that they are healing us.
