Healing Crohn’s Disease Ain’t Easy, plus a recipe for Broccoli Lemongrass Soup

It’s time for another update on my journey to heal myself naturally from Crohn’s disease. For a quick catch up, check out this post and this post. I debated sharing this post with you today because I felt embarrassed and ashamed. But as Brené Brown points out in The Gifts of Imperfection, shame thrives in […]

West African Peanut-Free Soup

It’s been a looong time since I posted a soup recipe. And it’s bizarre. ‘Cause I eat soup almost every day. Generally, I cobble together a mishmash of whatever is in my fridge along with the spices that strike my fancy. The results are always delicious, but aren’t noteworthy enough to warrant a blog post. […]

A Very Green Soup

In case the title didn’t make it obvious, this soup is very green. And I’m afraid I don’t have a witty anecdote or sage advice to go along with it. I was simply cleaning out the fridge to make room for my latest goodies from the farmers market, so I tossed the random vegetable stragglers […]

Want to know why I’ve been posting so many soup recipes lately? It’s still cold here, and rainy, and that means I want the warm comfort that a hot bowl of soup brings. I typically eat a bowl of soup (or two) as a full meal, but I get that not everyone feels soup constitutes […]

Zucchini Noodle Miso Soup

Zucchini noodles taste exactly like perfectly al dente pasta. Don’t argue with me, because it’s true. This is a delicious, easy and speedy soup you can throw together for a no-fuss lunch or dinner (or breakfast too, if that appeals to you). It’s a blast to use a spiral slicer to make the noodles, and […]

Brown Rice Congee

I’ll always remember eating my first bowl of congee because it coincided with my very first glimpse of a beluga whale’s penis. I promise I’m not a pervert – let me explain. In 2006, I was a member of the media relations team at the Vancouver Aquarium. One weekend, I was hosting a group of […]

Cream of Spinach Soup

I probably should have called this ‘fridge and freezer scraps’ soup, as this recipe came about after I rummaged through the fridge, selected what was old or about to go off and turned it into a meal. This soup was so simple, and yet I can’t tell you how delicious it was. The texture was […]
