Only good ingredients in this healthy green goddess soup: it's good for your soul, your body, and your conscience. Make a batch of this delicious soup of kale, spinach, and zucchinis flavored with cumin. The goddess in you will thank you for this Spring!
This soup is not too thick, the parsnip thickened the soup just enough. You can enjoy warm or cold on the go at work, it's delicious either way. I think it is the perfect combo with a protein of your choice for a great meal.
The healthy-ugly-yummy green soup
Truth be told, this green is not the vibrant green you see in magazines. As it cooks the vegetables' colors change but let me tell you that the flavors are still amazing.
I love eating greens on the regular for different reasons: be an example for my kids (although eating veggies is not a struggle with them) and health.
My healthy 'lifestyle'
I am not necessarily a sportive person so I try to eat healthy as much as I can. So my 'lifestyle' if you want to call it this way is to be as healthy as I can on weekdays and then I can indulge on weekends.
I try to exercise once in a while but it has not been anything regular for the past year or so. I had done the 5K run for the cure, it was an amazing feeling to run with strangers for a very important cause. But also, it was an accomplishment on a personal level as I had never run before!
ALL TO SAY: Eat healthily and be active, don't do like me! Ahaha!
I put cumin in it!
I choose to add a spoon of cumin to the soup to give an unexpected taste to it. It is NOT strong at all since there is over a liter of broth, it is quite diluted. If you are worried it will be too strong for your taste, skip it or put half of a spoon.
It was a great addition to the flavors! Be bold and try it!
