Testimonial

“Adam's...food was fantastic, prepared with incredible care and style. Adam was also very responsive to all of our dietary needs—which were considerable at the time, as we were expecting a baby and cravings changed from day to day. He was also a pleasure to have around. We recommend him without reservation.”

Butternut Squash and Ginger Soup with Peas

Monday, 07 February 2011 04:55

Oh, its been a tough winter and the soup cauldron has been bubbling away. Here is one of my favorites.

The combination of flavors warms my soul, brightens my day and supports my off-season diet. Ginger is great for digestion, circulation, as well as anti-inflammation.

Winter squash is a great source of ALA an Omega 3 fat for anti-inflammation but is also loaded with antioxidants, carotenoids, and vitamin A & C.
