Oh, Fall. Why do you have to signal such toxic cravings? Between the Halloween candy, pumpkin spice lattes, pies, cookies, mashed potatoes and more it is so hard to keep a clean lifestyle!
One thing I instill in my clients is that they should never feel as though they are missing out. If you are living a cleansing lifestyle, your body can walk by the donuts at work without flinching and you can order the quinoa over the cheeseburger with glee.
But during the holidays, that doesn’t become so easy. Not only is temptation everywhere but it feels as though it’s a part of tradition. And when it gets a little colder and a little darker, sometimes you just want a little comfort food.
But fear not, healthy eater. I have found the perfect Fall comfort food to totally satiate those seasonal cravings.
This soup tastes like Autumn. It’s creamy and heartwarming and perfectly spiced. If you are a fan of rich, thick and creamy soups, this one will be right up your alley.
I added a new favorite ingredient- Let’s Do It Organic Creamed Coconut. Unlike other coconut milk products on the market this is organic coconut only, no other additives. It perfectly balanced the spices in the soup.
Here’s what I love most about this soup: it totally dispels the idea that you have to eat raw veggies to be cleansing. This soup is absolutely cleansing and it’s also nourishing, rich and delicious.
There’s this idea this time of year that there’s no point in cleansing. I mean the holidays are coming up and you will just inevitably break your cleanse, right? Wrong!
With soups such as this one, you have the best of both worlds. You can eat comforting, seasonal foods and not wake up with 15 extra pounds on New Year’s Day :-)
