As the weather cools down, what a better way to warm up then with a healthy soup that helps you lose those extra pounds at the same time. The curry in this Spicy Carrot Soup may raise your temperature, but the soup itself is light enough to satisfy your hunger without weighing you down. It is filling too, and even my three kids loved it! The soup is flavored with curry (so it’s not too spicy for kids). Curry powder has many health benefits such as cancer prevention, alzheimer’s disease prevention, heart health, bone health and more. Thank you to ZLiving for allowing me to share this recipe! It is our new fall favorite soup recipe
A change of scenery always inspires and motivates! Spinning seems more fun when it’s held in a glass tree house with views of the Caribbean Ocean. A quick getaway to Saint Lucia, Turks + Caicos, Puerto Rico or Aruba can offer a refreshing break to help reset your fitness and dietary behavior to get your body fit. Four Caribbean properties have the programming, atmosphere and scenery to help you get in shape for summer. Check out 4 Caribbean fitness getaways.
