Hearty Cream of Broccoli Soup

Recently I have been soup crazy! As my mission to loose weight escalades so does my healthy food diet. These recipes are obviously not the absolute healthiest but it does insure that I’m eating my vegetables and eating in moderation. I have done some research into new blenders since mine recently cracked. I think I might go with the Magic Bullet until I can dish some spare cash towards the Vitamix. 

Moving on to Broccoli Heaven…

Cream of Tomato & Carrot Soup

As winter roles in so does the hot chocolate, candles and soup! Couch throws become a part of my daily dose of relaxation while eating becomes more and more time-consuming! A few days ago I incorporated one of my dad’s household favourites to my new home!
