Okay, now it's officially soup season since we saw our first snow flake this weekend. To prepare for the upcoming cold weather we are making bone broth to use as a base for our favorite soup. Bone broth adds rich flavor to any recipe and is beneficial to our gut and mental health.
Are you bloated, tired, achey, feeling foggy? Bone broth is going to strengthen your body and vitality.
Bone Broth is nutrient dense, rich in protein, collagen and amino acids. Drinking Bone broth supports joints, hair and nail growth, and restores gut health and strengthens the immune system. We like to sip on it in the afternoon to put a pep in our step. We also use it to cook with in broth based soups!

It officially feels like Fall out there. That crisp cool air gets us thinking about delicious pumpkin spice lattes and cider donuts. Guess what, we can bring those flavors to the dinner table with a warm bowl of pumpkin spice soup. It is quick and easy to make and it's customizable. We'll need a handful of ingredients to cook up this cozy bowl of yumminess.
To make life easy, aka a good kitchen hack, buy canned pumpkin. Make sure it is NOT pumpkin pie filling, which is loaded with sugar. We can use premixed pumpkin spice or blend your own with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove. To add some heat to the soup add cayenne pepper.
1. Chop onion and apple. In a pot: combine olive oil, onion, apple, and seasoning. Sauté on medium heat until soft.
2. Add pumpkin puree.
3. Add liquids: light coconut milk and broth.
4. Bring to a simmer, cook for 25 minutes.
5. Blend soup with immersion blender or food processor.
6. Serve with roasted pumpkin seeds!
