Black Bean, Coconut Soup

There is this place I go to right by one of my yoga studios called the Chicago Health Foods Store. They rotate their soups but they often have this black bean soup. It is so creamy and dreamy. I asked soup master, Matt what was in the black bean soup. He said he makes it…

Confluence Kombucha

I walked into the restaurant and instantly felt at home. Confluence Kombucha, a gluten-free gastroLAB, located in the Grove area of St. Louis is absolutely phenomenal.

roasted red pepper soup

Roasted Red Pepper Soup

If you have been reading the blogs, you already know my love for red peppers. This soup is my all-time favorite soup. The vitamin C and carotenoid content of bell peppers increases as the fruit ripens. This creates more antioxidants, which bring many health benefits. You can ripen the fruit even after it’s been harvested for…
