This is one of my favorite soups. I could eat it every day, it’s so tasty and nutritious. A good soup does wonders for the body and soul. Soups offer a certain comfort that other foods lack. They’re also a vehicle for nutrient dense ingredients- especially if using homemade bone broth. A staple if you are on a gut healing journey. Bone Broth was part of my daily regimen when I was healing. You can read about my story here

Butternut squash is an excellent source of vitamin A and one of the healthiest starches you can get. It’s got a gentle sweetness to it which pairs well with a bold curry flavors and embraces the sweetness of apple. Apple and butternut squash naturally compliment each other. They’re harvested at the same time of year, they’re both high in fiber. When Fall comes around this is one of the first soups I whip up. It’s become a staple in my house and I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much.

Who loves summertime? Ours is filled with fun weekend trips to the lake, days spent at the pool, and all around fun, but sometimes that means being tempted by the convenience of drive through's and not very healthy food. Here's an easy lunch or dinner idea that's healthy and delicious! I find that it really helps to plan a few easy recipes during this time of year so that I reduce the temptation of eating out.

My kids love mayo, we use it daily to make chicken salads, on sandwiches, and I honestly think one of my kids loves it so much that she would eat it with a spoon if I wasn't looking.

Recently, I read an article about cancer prevention and diet and one of the foods listed to NEVER eat was commercially bought mayo. Why? Even the "healthier" versions are usually made with an unhealthy oil,  and some even contain high fructose corn syrup. I have found that even the ones that contain olive oil only have a small amount and mixed in with one of the other unhealthy oils.

What's wrong with something that sounds as innocent as a vegetable oil? It's how these oils are processed that is the problem. Vegetable, Safflower, Soybean, and corn oil remove the oils chemically. Then they are deodorized and altered. They are one of the most processed foods we can consume and they are in so many products, mayo being one of the many.
