Hello dear readers. Yesterday, I referred to a soup recipe I was hoarding from you. I made squash soup and it was the perfect thing on a chilly, fall afternoon.
Heartwarming Winter Bisque
Recipe: Serves 1
2 cups roasted butternut squash (or any other squash or pumpkin!)
1/2 cup 1% or 2% milk
2 tsp real butter
a few pecans and walnuts
pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp ground mustard
pinch cayenne pepper
Place it all in the blender and shazam! Top with ground flax and pecans.
Another idea is to make it sweet by subbing in some apple and vanilla and nixing the mustard and chili powder.
Cinnamon * In one study, after taking 1/4 ā 1 tsp cinnamon daily for 40 days, all participants benefitted from a reduction of fasting blood sugar levels, blood triglycerides, and LDL (bad) cholesterol! It is very high in antioxidants and can help stabilize blood sugar levels, which will help prevent an insulin spike, and thus the storage of fat.
Butternut squash * A great source of Vitamin C, A, potassium, manganese, and folate. It is also very high in fiber and water content!
Cloves * super high in manganese and antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory effects on the body!
