Spicy Carrot Soup

Spicy Carrot Soup

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

Healthy Soup for Supper: Lentil-Farro Soup

IMG_2486

After my trip to Wisconsin (and my intake of cheese), I came back to Alabama to more rain and cooler temperatures. I thought a healthy dose of farro, lentils, chickpeas and Swiss chard would be the perfect mix to create this healthy soup: Lentil-Farro Soup. If you’re not familiar with Swiss Chard, it’s a leafy green full of vitamins. I added a southern hint of Cajun sausage to jazz it up just a bit.
