Miso is fermented soy bean paste and is great all on it's own with a little hot water or added to soups and stews. It adds a saltiness and thickness to soups that make them so satisfying and comforting, and not to mention the health benefits! Miso can be found at your local health food store.
Arame is a sea vegetable (seaweed) which adds a salty favour and is detoxifying and rich in minerals. Arame is immune supporting and has been proven to help fight against cancer.
Ginger is great for digestion, immune supporting, and has both antioxidant and anti-infalmmatory effects.
Butternut Squash contains 145 % of your daily recommended Vitamin A and is one of your top sources for alpha and beta-carotene which is great for eye health.
Tamari is my favourite healthier soy sauce alternative because it is fermented it adds many health benefits and contains little to no wheat, especially if you buy the wheat free tamari. This is great for anyone who is gluten intolerant or avoiding wheat and gluten.
I've been doing a lot of cooking lately for clients and am just getting busier with the holiday season approaching so the best kind of meals for my hubby and I are big one pot meals that can stretch us throughout the week. I like to freeze some for later and also have it ready in the fridge in containers to take to work for lunch or possibly even another dinner depending on the week. You can easily change the flavour of this soup each time you have it by adding some curry powder or chilli powder to switch things up and serve it with a hearty salad, quinoa, or brown rice. The days that I am cooking for 2 clients in a day are days that I don't particularly feel like cooking and sometimes it can be scary what I come home to when I leave the meals up to my hubby. Maybe he does this on purpose to get out of the cooking?! I'm not joking, there have been some VERY creative meals that he has served such as his Raw Kale with Fresh Ginger Salad (this consisted of exactly the description.. no dressing, raw kale broken up, and fresh ginger sliced into chunks!!), Omelettes which he added fresh strawberries to and ended up being more like jam in an omelette, Orange and Ginger Omelettes, and yes.. these really happened. ;) He really likes his ginger!!
