Hi Peaches!

I’m really not a fan of winter, as you may already know.

The only three reasons I don’t totally hate it are:

  1. You can eat soup without sweating.
  2. You can enjoy sitting by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate.
  3. You have a great excuse not to leave the house when there is a big snow storm. (Although you may have to shovel..)

Other than that, it’s the worst.

My toes are numb from December-March, and I just don’t think that is fair to my toes.

I need them. Cute sandals are awaiting me…

Speaking of sandals, someone special got me a ticket to FLORIDA for my birthday! So I shall be defrosting my toes in the sand soon enough.

HALLELUJAH.*Praising hands emoji.*

But until then, I will be binge eating soup.

I love soup, but in Connecticut you only get a limited slot of time to eat hot soup. Once your time is up – forget it.

It’ll be sweat city.

Believe it or not, I once was a Panera Bread lover. (Before I was aware of my food sensitivities.) I would NEVER have passed up an opportunity for Broccoli Cheddar soup in a bread bowl. I was ALL UP IN THAT.

Not the case anymore though.

Now? I’d rather make my own healthy version that I can confidently eat knowing it is loaded with nutrients! You don’t have to sacrifice taste for nutrition. Take my word for it, it’s just as good.

Creamy Broccoli Soup

Ingredients:

Recipe:

  • Start by opening your bag of broccoli, and rinsing it.
  • Add into a large stir fry pan the entire bag of broccoli, salt, pepper, and 1 cup of water. Let steam with the cover on for 12 minutes.
  • Next uncover your pan, turn the heat off, and add in 1 cup of veggie broth, 1/3 cup of coconut milk, and 1 tsp. of olive oil.
  • At this point you may pour the mixture into your Vitamix Blender, or you can start blending with your handheld blender (right in the pan) until the mixture is slightly chunky.
  • Then add in 1 more cup of vegetable broth, 1/3 cup of coconut milk, and more 1 cup of water.
  • Blend until desired creaminess.
  • You may also add more water if you like your soup thinner!
  • Taste test, and add more salt/pepper if necessary.
  • Serve with your favorite gluten free bread, and enjoy!

 

Until Next Time,
