Creamy Coconut Tomato Tortellini Soup

Somehow I had never had the pleasure of eating tortellini soup in my life up until this point, but if you are like I was, do yourself a favor and make this RIGHT NOW. Like, don’t even wait for dinner tonight. It’s that life changing. This guy is the perfect winter warm up soup AND it’s got your protein, greens, carbs, and broth so it’s basically a superfood supermeal all packed into one 20 minute soup recipe! No dairy or sugar here either so basically this is the greatest soup of all time. Enjoy my peeps!

Healing Golden Turmeric Latte

Wow it’s currently -15 and dropping, so basically it was nearly impossible to get out of bed this morning. Thankfully, I am now sipping on this magical turmeric latte and have warmed up enough to tell you about it.

I recently discovered something called VIOME which is this super cool gut microbiome (aka all your bacteria that make up your gut) test where you send in a stool sample and they will analyze it and report back your SPECIFIC gut microbiome data and personalized food/diet recommendations that will promote optimal gut functioning and therefore optimal you functioning. I’ll do a whole post all about my results and how much I’m OBSESSED with what I got back and how amazing I’ve been feeling since switching up my food intake based on their recommendations, but for now I’ll just give you a short little teaser.

My results consisted of a bunch of different sections, such as my superfoods, what foods to enjoy, what foods I should cut out completely, how much I should be eating of each, whyyyyy I should be eating this way, and an analysis of my microbial richness, inflammatorry activity, and metabolic fitness. Among many other things. But for the purposes of this post I will just tell ya that they recommended I have lots of turmeric.

Insert this latte into my life. Boy oh boy am I glad my Viome told me to have more because this latte is absolutely outstanding and I look forward to having one every freakin’ day. AND IT’S SO GOOD FOR YOU!!!! Turmeric contains curcumin which (when consumed with a little black pepper to make it more bio-available) is one of the best anti-inflammatory compounds in the world and we all know by now that chronic inflammation in the body is the root of all evil so basically we should all be trying to get as much of this curcumin as possible.

Also, if you struggle with gut issues or have sneaky intolerances, or even just bloat or have bad gas, you should 100% get your own Viome test done!!! Seriously. Life changing, people. You can use the promo code “bbb10” at Viome.com for $10 off your sample, too!

Happy Monday my fellow health foodies!
