How was your weekend? I can’t believe it is Sunday evening already and the weekend is all over.
Our weekend was full of beach visits, meetings, shopping and eating When we go out on our weekend treks we always bring a whack of snacks with us to keep us fuelled and fresh. I made a total of 3 batches of these orange-cocoa cookies! I didn’t eat all of them myself, I did share and handed some out as our days went on
Today was a tad rainy and when we came home we decided it was a perfect night to make some soup….well it turned out more like stew – Hearty, Beefy, Good. Minus the Beef of course! Lentils were the mean protein source of this soup!
Instead of my usual bouillon cubes I went a little more high class today and used this Pacific Natural Foods brand Vegetable Broth – Amazing!
Here is the red soup:
Easy Red Soup:
2 large beets
2 broccoli heads
1 large sweet potato
1 1/2 cups lentils
1 tbsp evoo
1 500 ml vegetable broth
2 cups water
sea salt and pepper to taste
In your soup pot, heat oil over medium heat and add onion
Cook onion until tender, add chopped carrots and beets
Pour in the broth and water, add lentils, broccoli and sweet potatoes
Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, season with salt and pepper and serve!
This is such an easy and nutritious soup!
Since last week I have been drowning myself in organic pineapples from Whole Foods. I can’t stop eating them. On Saturday night we made a special trip to whole foods just for my pineapples….I am that crazy in love with them right now! I don’t know about you, but my favourite treat is pineapple and chocolate so tonight after my coffee meet up with my good friend Melissa I ate some of this:
Tasty, Sweet, Chocolaty Goodness!
Take some good (It has to be GOOD pineapple) and add some delicious dark, vegan chocolate chips! I usually melt some chocolate and drizzle it over my pineapple chunks, but I didn’t have the time for that tonight. Just straight to the goods for me!
Tomorrow I will be sharing something I am starting with you all!
OH! I almost forgot – Hudson got a new harness today! Isn’t it spiffy? Thanks mom and dad, you are the best grand doggie parents ever! I tell ya, this guy is so spoiled. Last week my sister bought him a bag of all natural peanut butter and parsley treats, and my nana treats him to some good ol’ german sausage whenever he stops by. He thanks you all
What is your Favourite fruit to drizzle with chocolate or pour chocolate chips over?
