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.

What You Don't Know About Omega-3 Fats

If you really understood how critical omega-3 fatty acids are to keeping your brain sharp, your heart healthy, and your mental health intact, you would make sure you and your family were eating more of them! Omega-3 fats have an important role in reducing inflammation, blood clots, and blood pressure, and are critical for learning, vision, and brain function; especially for the brain development of babies and children. Even childhood food allergies and postpartum depression are linked to a low intake of omega-3 fatty acids! We usually talk about omega-3s in conjunction with seafood, but I have a couple of non-fish suggestions that will help you get more of this incredible fatty acid in your diet. Furthermore, so you don’t get confused by tricky labels, I will clue you in on the omega-3 label language and the different kinds of omega-3s.
