This Avocado Soup is incredible. I had never actually served avocado hot before, and was delighted with its rich, savory flavor… somehow reminiscent of the green enchiladas my mom used to make. Weird, right? I can’t explain it. I could, however, go on and on about how delightful soups are this time of year, with their ease of preparation and warm, comforting goodness on a bitterly cold day. We’ve been having some pretty wacky weather this year, though, with a few days of freezing chill before summer heat swoops back in. I can go to bed at night with the AC on and wake in up the morning in an icebox, but by the time I’ve put together a nice pot of soup, it’s hot again. So much so that I’m sweating as I sit at my desk and type this. Whether you like cold weather or not, it’s a disconcerting pattern, considering that ten years ago I’d have been bundled up since the start of October and might even have seen a bit of snow on the ground by now. Instead I’ll be spending Thanksgiving in shorts. So I’m doing my best to enjoy the cold days when they happen and savor foods like this one instead of complaining about the chill. You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone, you know?
Are you suffering from adrenal fatigue?
Are You Tired and Wired? is one of my favorite books on adrenal fatigue with chronic illness. It’s a comprehensive yet straightforward examination of the factors at work and home that contribute to chronic adrenal dysfunction and the diet, lifestyle adjustments, and emotional reprogramming that can help fix it. A healthcare provider with a focus on women’s health, Marcelle Pick will help you identify what type of adrenal dysfunction you suffer from and provide an easy-to-follow, science-based program to help you restore balance to your life. I found it extremely helpful with my own chronic fatigue!
