Healthy Poblano Chili and Bean Soup


I’ve been wanted to go to Santa Fe, New Mexico for years.  I’m not sure why. My guess is that for many, the area is a spiritual destination full of semi-precious stones and crystals and copious amounts of churches.  It’s also an area rich in history especially driving over the Rio Grande and driving through parts of Route 66.

Creamy Coconut Cauliflower Soup


Well hello there!  Sooooo, I’ve ended a crazy crazy week.  How about yourself?  I’m always about the honesty and I don’t shy away from sharing. I’m struggling with my own health right now mostly based on my managing (or rather, not managing) the stress in my life.  I’m doing my best by getting rest, eating as much plant-forward as possible, and getting low impact exercise like yoga, and walking.  You will love my recent post where I talk about my practice of self-care and I share my Coconut Avocado Banana Nourishing Hair & Face Mask (PS. it’s all edible too!).

Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

I don’t quite understand why it took me so long to invest in a slow cooker.  I mean, I talk about balance all the time and what better way to simplify than with a slow cooker. You just simply toss all ingredients into the crockpot, set for 8 hours and away you go!

Ayurvedic Cleansing Soup


Sounds delish, right?  Maybe not but it actually is better than what it probably looks like.  I recorded a Dr. Oz show which featured Ayurveda practices.  More specifically, how the ancient practice of Ayurveda has healing properties and that can actually help you loose weight.  Not that I need to but I like the idea of cleansing foods.  Mung Beans, which are included in this recipe have powerful capabilities.  If you are aware of the three doshas (you can learn more about it here) this particular bean helps to balance all three.  As well, the spices in this soup help flush out toxins in the body.

Creamy Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

My Mother makes the best cream soups although many of them contain diary and chicken stock.  And, the main difference between the two of us is that she swears by a recipe and I always “wing it”!
