.: Some Things to Warm up Your Soul :.

I have a few recipes to share with you – they are all amazing, so I am really excited for my readers to get cookin’!  The first recipe is perfect for these cold winter days.  I personally have never made my own batch of soup, I thoroughly enjoy home made soup, so I was extremely excited to give it a try!  And, it was a success – looks like we will be having more soups in our weekly meal planning!!  With all this positive talk let me present to you the star of it all…

Carrot Ginger Soup

For the garnish I chose to use the recommended ‘chopped chives’ and I added a splash of coconut milk to make it creamy.  I definitely do have to say I wish I could taste the ginger a bit more.  I was surprised at how “carroty” the soup flavor really is despite all the onions I added!! Rich flavor!!! Amazing – try it!  Another note: the recipe calls for butter you can use olive oil or ghee!

No Bake Almond Butter Blondies

These are divine creations – I could eat the whole slab of bars if I really let all my self control go!  I am impressed with how much you can do by adding almond flour to a “bar” recipe to bulk up the nut butter – it works so well, and does it all without leaving a grainy texture too!

Baked Vanilla Donuts

I can’t get enough of these, I ate two for snack after lunch today!  I am loving the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips melted on top it literally is like a ganache layer with sprinkles.  It is decadent – highly recommend using them!  I cooked my donuts in a cupcake tin and used a device to pop out the inside to make them into donuts.  This technique changed the consistency of the product as the center did not get cooked as much as it would have using a donut pan.  I was not disappointed though as I love mushy, gooey, practically raw baked good!!!

AMAZING!!!!!

After sharing all these delicious treats, I must leave you with some good work-out material.  Here is a quick HIIT workout, because with all this baking ahead of you, you won’t have much time to spend sweating!!

20 min HIIT workout

ENJOY IT ALL!!!!!!
