Last time, I shared the 10 Ways to Not Let the Holidays Derail Your Diet. One of my favorite tips is number 5, bring alkaline-rich foods to holiday events.
So today, I’m sharing a great recipe to do exactly that, flavorful and rich curried sweet potato soup. It makes a great addition to a festive table, travels and reheats easily, and even the kids will be coming back for seconds.
But even better, it’s full of healthy, alkaline ingredients and might just inspire others around the table to start eating healthier if it can taste this good!
My family and I will eat this a few times over the next few weeks because it’s kind of addicting at this time of year. In fact, it’s easy to double the recipe and freeze or refrigerate half for another time.
I hope you’ll try it and let me know what you think when you do.
