Happy Thursday everyone !!!
Just discovered this awesome line of raw, live food. ”Go Raw”. If you’re not familiar, raw food contains enzymes which aid in the digestion and absorption of food. Cooking food over 116 degrees destroys all these enzymes so you’re getting a lot more nutrients by eating live/raw. Go Raw makes cookies, sprouted nuts, bars, chocolate, flax snacks and more ! You can find them on Amazon or your local health food store. I found the line at Central Market. I love these sunflower seeds…I keep them in baggies in my car, workout bag, tennis bag, etc. They are a great snack when you’re on-the-go !
And onto one of my favorite new soups…it is so flavorful and easy ! I love it with kale, however my family is not a huge kale fan (actually just my daughter and husband…my son like me loves kale!) , so I substituted the kale this time for a couple carrots and stalks of celery. It is great either way and so easy!!!
Bean and Kale Soup
|Cannelini & Kale Soup||
- 3 slices turkey bacon, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
- 1 small onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 3 cups chopped kale (or 2 carrots and 2 stalks celery)
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cans cannelini beans
- 1 box (32 ounces) veggie or chicken broth
- Cook bacon, garlic and onion over medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes. Add kale and the rest of the ingredients. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. I like to use my immersion blender for a few seconds before serving to make this soup a little creamy yet still have substance. I served it with toasted pita bread.
