Amazing Vegetable Avocado Soup

If you’re busy and enjoy high-quality, delicious food, you’ll want to try this month’s meal hack. Buy fresh vegetable soup in the refrigerated section of Costco or a grocery store. I use CedarLane Organic Chopped Vegetable & Barley Soup that I purchase from Costco. Add a couple of spoonfuls of your favorite salsa to each bowl of soup. If you end up using a sweeter fruit salsa like mango salsa, add a couple of squeezes of fresh lime.

Heat soup by the bowl in the microwave or heat the whole container of soup on the stove. Just add fresh avocado chunks to each bowl of hot soup and serve. You’ll be surprised at how well a little salsa and avocado can enhance the flavor of the vegetable soup. You can have a delicious, hearty soup that is quick, fun and feels like you have been cooking all day!

15-Minute Roasted Mexican Soup

I can't get enough of this 15-minute soup. It tastes like it been roasting for hours and it has, but by Trader Joe's and not by you! It’s quick and sooo good. You might be able to find these roasted veggies at other stores, but you will for sure find all the ingredients at Trader Joe's. It's a soup-er healthy, zippy, meal hack. This soup can be left chunky or blended smooth, either way it taste soup-perb. The blended version is perfect for those picky eaters who don't appreciate onions, bell peppers or black beans. Shhhh, they'll never know if you don't tell them. Top it with cheese, cilantro, avocados and/or tortilla chips or don’t add a thing to it. It’s a flexible meal using frozen ingredients that you can keep on hand and made on the spot.

The Real Fruit Truth

I’m challenging you this month to replace processed sugar and sweet treats with fruit! Many people equate fruit with white sugar, claiming it to be just as bad. THIS ISN'T TRUE! I'm regularly told, "I'm skipping fruit and sugar as part of my diet plan," as if it's the same thing. If you are someone who thinks this, please keep reading!

Healthy Challenge: July 2018

Pass the Honey, Honey

This month's healthy challenge is SWEET! I'm challenging you to replace processed sugars with whole foods. Whole foods like fruit and raw honey are great alternatives to processed sugars! Honey is truly a gift from nature, and we have our friends the bees to thank. A honey bee will only make about 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey IN ITS LIFETIME. Talk about a precious gift. But there is a big difference between commercial honey and raw honey! I'm inviting you to join me in adopting the 12-Fix Lean Life Plan in my book, Lean Body Smart Life! Start with Fix #1 and replace sugar, sweet treats, refined flour, and processed foods with whole foods like fruit and raw honey this month! Then add a new Fix each month. I'll be helping you every week on my Foods With Judes Facebook Live and various posts to adopt the 12-Fix Plan to your life. Let's do this together!
