Creamy Carrot & Golden Beet Soup

ah, the dramatic and complicated side of a "chicken once a week" wife married to a "get your daily animal product and then some" husband. Rough night. I can't put it into words on this lovely blog, so it's time to journal for a few good hours (minutes) before bed, then I'll hand it over to God and pray for understanding.

enjoyed after the morning elliptical:
4 miles - 39:04 + 10 min
afternoon abs
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 2 kale leaves
  • 1 cup rice milk
  • 4 frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1 date
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • topped with blueberries, grapes, homemade granola

i'm convinced that plums are actually gigantic dark red grapes, in disguise.

i had no idea...

...that it would taste like 2 slices o' heaven. toast that cinnamon whole wheat bread, and enjoy warm pinto beans, avocado, and raw zucchini.

do it.

an appetizer...

Creamy Carrot & Golden Beet Soup

[thought recipe was from Vegan Dad,
but now I can't find it for the life of me!
Maybe it was Fat Free Vegan Kitchen?
hmm. well, thanks to the both of ya]

  • 2 handfuls baby carrots
  • 3 medium sized golden beets, peeled and diced
  • 1 small onion (I used a few green guys)
  • 3-5 cups water
  • salt n peppah
  • 1/4 cup miso paste (or cheat like me, and use a big ol' block of tofu!)
  • summer squash
  1. Boil + cook carrots, beets, onion, h2o, salt, 'till veggies are tender
  2. Carefully pour into blender, add miso/tofu, some summer squash (optional), pepper
  3. Blend, but I'd let it cool a bit first with the lid off to avoid explosions.
  4. Serve nice n' warm with homemade crackers.

delicious, creamy. beauty.

recipe soon to come. i'm pretty stoked for these guys. hubs? not so much, but that's why he shall delight in tofu jambalaya n sweet potato with beans.

Above all,
love each other deeply,
because love covers
over a multitude of sins.

1 Peter 4:8

I miss reading blogs. But 'tis life nowadays.
