Sweet Potato Leek Soup

by Nicole on November 23, 2010

The blogging comminuty is a truly special place. Through it we get to be a part of a group of people who really do support each other and despite some of the downfalls, make each other feel welcomed and loved. That is certainly how I felt after my last 2 posts. Thank you for all of the support and well wishes from the blogging community and of course, from my friends and family.

Yesterday I had a relaxing day off which I spent recovering from the half. I did some yoga, from which I thought I was cured…until an hour later when I went back to hobbling along. Then I went with my cousin to get a very long pedicure and manicure. So worth every penny.

For lunch  I reheated some sweet potato leek soup I made. I found leeks at Trader Joe’s and figured I’d make a soup out of them. Most leek soups are filled with butter and cream, so I reduced the butter and left out the cream. Perfection.

with some Mary's Gone Crackers

This soup is quick and easy with a short ingredient list. I’m a big fan. It is pretty filling and even more so when eaten with some crackers.

Oh another note, I know many of you know I am currently enrolled in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I am loving every second and learning so much. Occasionally they send me emails about special offers and since I wish I knew about these when I was going to enroll, I thought I’d share it with all of you. If you are thinking of enrolling, this may give you the push you need.

If you are interested in recieving a “Grad-itude” bag from IIN email or contact me for more information ([email protected]) . The gift bag includes:

Have an amazing day!

After work I’ll be heading to the gym to do some walking on the treadmill to get moving.
