Spiced Lentil Soup

Warm and hearty Spiced Lentil Soup with tomatoes and spinach, perfect for chilly winter dinners! #vegan #glutenfree #healthy #recipes

Flannel shirts, hot cups of tea, and Spiced Lentil Soup, yup, winter’s here and I am so excited! Why? Because it’s soup season! Maybe I’m just a little weird, but you know that interview question “if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?” and any normal person would probably say mac and cheese or guacamole or chocolate? Yeah, I say soup. It’s warm and filling and I can fill it with my favorite things so whatever I’m in the mood for, it’s always the right choice. That’s not even mentioning all the perks of one pot meals! Therefore, I warn you now, Fresh Fit Foodie is probably going to turn into Fresh Fit Soupie until I have to pack away my fuzzy winter socks!

Fresh Tomato White Bean Soup

Fresh Tomato White Bean Soup- from scratch made easy with fresh produce, #glutenfree pasta, and protein filled beans! #vegan #healthy #recipes

Fresh is really the key word in this Fresh Tomato White Bean Soup. Everything that’s good and wonderful and delicious about this soup is thanks to the heaps of fresh tomato, fresh onion, fresh garlic, fresh basil. It might be (finally!) getting chilly outside, but there’s so much rich flavor when you make everything from scratch it’s worth a little extra chopping. And trust me, this vegan & gluten free soup is so delicious and easy to make everyone in your family with love it!

Winter Squash Soup

My obsession with this Winter Squash Soup began two years ago the first time I tried Whole Foods’ Triple Squash Soup. It was love at first taste. Just a few bites in and I was hunting google for the recipe (sadly no amount of soup-love is sustainable at $4 per cup). Since that day I’ve made renditions of this Winter Squash Soup dozens of times, adjusting and tweaking until it finally arrived here: perfection. 

One Pot Pumpkin Chili

One Pot Pumpkin Chili- the best warming fall comfort food! This version is #vegan #glutenfree and #healthy too! #recipes

November, let’s talk. See, Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away and by all accounts I should be bundling up in all the flannel and puffy things I can find. I should be waist deep in rainbow leaves and drinking hot chocolate or apple cider on my chilly early morning walk home from 6 AM yoga. But no, November, apparently you’ve decided it’s actually April and we’re just going to skip over that whole “Fall” season (let’s not even start on “Winter”)! November, you’ve decided I still need to wear tank tops when I work out BUT no matter how strangely is-the-world-ending-ly warm you’ve made this month, you won’t keep me from hoarding pumpkin recipes like a squirrel hoarding nuts! (Which they are still doing despite your best efforts). 

Balsamic Rosemary Brussels Sprouts

Balsamic & Rosemary Brussels Sprouts- such an easy side but so delicious! Perfect Thanksgiving recipe! #healthy #glutenfree #vegan #recipe

Weird fact about me: I think vegetables are beautiful, as in, little works of art. I know I’m not alone either because when I told my wedding florist that I wanted vegetables in my centerpieces he knew exactly what I was talking about. And so come June 21, 2014, our tables had an eclectic mix of flowers, lantern candles, chalkboard table numbers, asparagus wrapped vases, and, yes, terra cotta pots of raw brussels sprouts. Now when it comes to eating, well, perfectly caramelized balsamic rosemary brussels sprouts? It might not be centerpiece ready but that’s pretty beautiful in my book too!

One Pot Enchilada Quinoa

One Pot Enchilada Quinoa is one of the easiest dinner's you'll make, so #healthy and #glutenfree too! #recipes #onepot #quinoa

This is the easiest dinner you’ve ever made. Really, truly, this one pot enchilada quinoa is so easy I think it might even give sandwiches a run for their money on the easy recipes scale! It’s one of those dump everything in a pot and let the stove do all the work recipes, but even better than that, this enchilada quinoa comes in at maybe a dollar a serving, maybe. It’s cheap, it’s delicious, it’s easy, and, as if it could get better, it’s delicious hot or cold! I’ve been eating it for lunch all week but my meat loving husband has forgone his carnivorous ways for this vegetarian dish every night!
