This brightly-colored, full-flavored, hearty Curried Vegetable Soup is an autoimmune protocol-friendly adaptation of a meal I used to make all the time with lots of curry powder. Mostly because I always seemed to have too much of the stuff lying around, but also because you never need an excuse to eat a healthy meal, especially when it takes hardly any effort to prepare. With six different types of veggies (seven if you count the garlic!), rounded out with a cheap cut of beef, this soup certainly fits the bill. It’s ready in just over 30 minutes and if you want to make it stretch a little further, you can add more broth for a thinner consistency. (Make it bone broth for the most health benefits.) You can also sub the zucchini for yellow squash or use a mixture of both. Also feel free to adjust the seasonings to taste or to use curry powder instead if you aren’t following the autoimmune protocol!
Keep your household clean, too!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but my health-consciousness actually began long before I started cooking. Growing up with a sensitive nose and skin that would break out into a rash at the slightest provocation, I’ve been making my own cosmetics and cleaning products since high school. I hoped that avoiding these environmental toxins would not only improve my health, but be better for the environment and save me some money compared to buying high-end non-toxic products at a health-foods store. Whatever your reasons, making your own household products is easier than you might think. My e-book A Clean Space has all the tips, tricks, and recipes you need to get started–and it’s only $6.99!
