"This is some of the best potato soup I've ever had, baby!" exclaimed my husband after finishing his bowl of soup. Creamy, lush, silky potato base with soft potatoes, black beans and roasted potatoes on top. My husband especially loved the roasted potatoes on top as it was like having fries with your soup stating it reminded him of what you would get at Marie Calendar's giving it a 10 out of 10! I agree, this soup is amazing, incredible, hearty, warming, filling, superb, a winner, vegan comfort food that will leave you satisfied. OMGosh it is good!
It almost reminded me of how creamy clam chowder soup is yet with soft potatoes instead of clams. :0) This soup was made with very few ingredients as I had very few on hand. The result? Potato perfection! I really don't like missing out on things, and I feel like you'd be missing out if you didn't join me in making this soup! I am thankful for the inspiration to create this recipe, yum! Enjoy!

Tomato Vegetable Soup is loaded with savory flavors. The onions, garlic and mushrooms are sauteed until the aroma fills the kitchen. Tomatoes and heaping handfuls of fresh oregano are added for an unforgettable experience. I made this soup on a creative inspired thought. What if I took my homemade pasta sauce and created a soup version? That is essentially what happened in the kitchen. I love following those "what if" ideas to fruition as they usually stem in a one of a kind creation. I could absolutely see serving this to others with a smile, it's share-worthy! So much so I made a quick video (less than 2 min) so you can share with your loved ones! Enjoy!
I call this Tatiana Sopa since we stayed in a casa dedicated to Tatiana Proskouriakoff while at my husband's conference at the Hacienda Chichen. Tatiana helped decipher the Mayan hieroglyphs and writing system as well as create very impressive reconstructive drawings. The soup is filled with potatoes, beans, colored red with beets, flavored with onions, garlic, touches of pepper and zucchini for a simple and satisfying soup. We had it twice since we enjoyed it so much, it makes you feel wonderful. I hope you enjoy this new healthy soup!

Peaceful Jungle Love Preparation:
This soup was inspired by a desire for powerful healing spices from India for a bold flavor combined with the cleansing effect of cabbage. It is filled with holistic herbs such as curry, turmeric, ginger and more with crushed garlic, onions, cabbage and a touch of jalapeno for spice. I recently watched The Hundred-Foot Journey which is a lovely movie based on a family who moves from India and open a restaurant in France against great odds. The movie left a big desire for more Indian food and thus this soup was born. Flowing with the essence of love and hopes for healing I decided upon naming it Parvati's Cabbage Soup. Parvati is the Hindu Goddess of love, fertility and devotion, whom wed Shiva. I feel this soup was inspired and it is my way of saying thank you to the Indian Culture for such delicious spices! This soup is cleanse-worthy, healing, flavorful and a touch spicy. Also fitting on my mom's birthday who is like a Goddess the way she offers so much love to so many people and is devoted to my father. Happy Birthday Mom!

This soup is sweet yet spicy, rich, creamy and full of vibrant flavors. Sweet potatoes and radishes combined with curry adds a new layer and dimension to the soup that is both delightful and unexpected.
This soup warms you up from the insight out and makes your belly and body smile! Sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamin A, radishes detoxify your body and curry powder helps protect the immune system from bacterial infections. These foods combined create a magically delicious and healthy soup!
This recipe was inspired and modified from "The Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook" which I absolutely love! It has a wealth of information, fantastically delicious recipes and funny commentary to go with it.
Cheers to a happy healthier you!
Sometimes all you want is a BIG bowl of homemade soup with some homemade biscuits to go with it. Today was such a day. We had carrots, celery, potatoes and deep dark vegetable broth begging to be used. I began chopping to create garden vegetable soup.
I felt inclined to add noodles, so I listened to my inner voice, added brown-rice macaroni noodles and it brought the soup to the next level. I love to follow my heart in the kitchen to create an alchemical creation such as this. Do you ever add surprise ingredients on a whim?
My husband asked what I'd be having to eat haha and suggested the smiley face lay out! I LOVE meals that make him happy.
It ended up reminding us of miso and ministrone soup. Gerald came up the witty name of Vegan MiSo Want MYstrone Soup because you will want it all to yourself it is SO good!
The meal was absolutely delicious! My husband gave it 10 stars!!! 10! :) It is the perfect go to meal for the fall. Filled with nutrition and cold-busting ingredients to build your immunity such as garlic, onions, fresh ginger, herbs and more!
We served ours with homemade gluten-free biscuits. Quite frankly, the best I've made yet! The first batch I made featured in the smiley were really good but not quite as fluffy as I was hoping for. I modified the recipe ever so slightly, tried again this evening and nailed it!
To make this soup you will need:
Gluten-Free "Bisquick" Biscuits are made with only 4 ingredients. They are so quick and easy and have become my new go-to superstar recipe! They are big enough to cut in half and have with jam. To make these simple yet ever so satisfying biscuits all you will need are the following ingredients:
My favorite gluten-free flour mix is Sarah's Gluten Free Flour Blend. I absolutely love it! The flour works well in bread, pizza, rolls and whatever else your heart can dream up.

Unsure what to do with all of those vegetables in the fridge? Make some veggie broth. I had some broccoli that was begging me to use it and this broth offered just the trick. This Homemade Vegetable Broth is out of this world and whimsically easy!
If you've ever seen the movie Julie & Julia there is a scene where Julia is cutting up onions in a fury after being embarrassed in cooking class. Julia is standing over a mound of chopped onions crying, when her husband walks in he instantly stops, grabs his eyes and goes to leave.
She asks "Hungry?"
he replies "No"
she says "good"
and continues chopping away. The next day she is proud to show off her fast chopping skills! Here is a link if you wish to watch the onion mastery.
I was cutting the onions for this broth, crying up a storm while I look over to see Jerry wiping his eyes and waving as he heads for the door haha! It was so funny and reminded us of this movie scene. Moments like this make the soup taste better I swear.
This recipe was inspired by Vegan Yum Yum where I found a recipe that was easy and well worth it. The write up is creative, the pictures are beautiful and it inspired me enough to get off a dime and make my own vegetable broth. I hope I can do the same for you!
This recipe is:
and available right here right now.
Enjoy in a number of dishes. To your good health!

With all the cold weather across the states soup seemed like a fitting recipe to make. Soup warms you up from the inside out taking that bone chilling cold away. We recently visited Michigan and it was a winter wonder. Flying over the states we couldn't believe how many of them were frozen solid!
I've never felt so thankful to live in San Diego! It makes me appreciate how good we really have it. Right now I am writing this in a coffee shop near the beach, with the warm sun shining down on me sipping an almond chai latte, oh my gosh life is so good! I saw a few homeless people on the way and it just stops me in my tracks and makes me give gratitude for all the blessings big and small in my life.
We attended our VERY first private conference for Gerald's new book! It was a smashing success and everyone LOVED it! I can say this because I am his wife...but he looked so handsome, so poised, and he was incredible! He was completely "on" the entire time. What a mind he has. People were commenting on how brilliant he is! His ability to recall information on the spot is truly incredible. The energy was fantastic, the people were amazing and we can not WAIT to do more!!!! We'll share the video as soon as we can! In the mean time here are some pictures:
Me excited for the event!!
The event was held in Port Austin, Michigan in their new community center. It was a winter wonderland covered in snow and frozen solid!
Scott Steigerwald from Bird Creek Farms hosted their very fist educational event featuring Gerald Clark!
Dr. Stefan Brink from The Health Oasis in Royal Oak, MI attended the event and spoke about his healing modalities offered.
The main event was Gerald Clark discussing consciousness, unconditional love and his book "The Anunnaki of Nibiru: Mankind's Forgotten Creators, Enslavers, Destroyers, Saviors and Hidden Architects of the New World Order."
Afterwards our hosts Scott and Beth treated us all to a fabulous dinner at their local spot "The Farm".
Chef Pam wowed us with a special vegan meal!
We all had a great time and can't wait for more events!!!
Okay back to the soup.....!
What do I have for you? A hearty full flavor Broccoli Cream Soup. Not only is it crave worthy and delicious but it's also incredibly good for you! Did you know that broccoli is high in one of my favorite vitamins? Vitamin D! It is also loaded with Vitamin K, A and B-Complex. If you are on a detox diet or looking for a strong detoxifier, broccoli is it! Plus it works as an anti-inflammatory, is a strong antioxidant, can help to prevent cancer, support happy healthy digestion and so much more! Broccoli is a good vegetable to keep handy as it helps with skin damage from the sun! So whip up some soup and grab the ladle and SHINE on!!!
To your good health!! :)
LOVE or as our new friend would say...
Love, Love, Love,
Tomato soup is one my husbands absolute favorites. I often ask what he wants and he'll grin and say "tomato soup." I used to buy a can of tomato soup until I realized we were practically eating a can of GMO soup. Not so yummy. Then I started buying an organic tomato soup in a carton but realized there was milk in it. :( I found some without the milk and loved it but didn't love the price at the rate we were eating it.
It soon came to my attention that I had never tried to make tomato soup! So I gave it a try and not only is it quick and simple but it is lip smacking delicious. After eating a bowl I immediately feel better. I don't know what it is but it just makes my body feel alive! My body warms up instantly and my blood flow feels better. Now I ensure I have all the ingredients I need on hand so I can most always make a batch of tomato soup!
What do you need? 1 sweet onion, 2-5 cloves garlic (depending on your liking), 1 carrot, 1 stalk of celery, 1 can of diced organic tomatoes or a couple cups of chopped tomatoes will do as well. Add 1 cup of vegetable broth or water if you are out. Add salt and pepper and red pepper flakes to taste! My oh my what a taste sensation this is! Add parsley or basil for added flavor and health benefits. I've also made it without the celery and carrot and it was still sensational. Ideally I'd have organic heirloom tomatoes fresh picked from the garden but until then this will do just fine!
Or BLEND and have it SMOOTH!
OPT: Feel free to saute the onion in olive oil and add a little vegan butter when you add the milk. It's quite tasty although I typically make it without oil and butter for a healthier low-fat option.
I hope this finds you warm and in good health! It's almost Valentine's day! Let your LOVE SHINE!!!
