Lemony Sunchoke Soup

Lemony Sunchoke Soup | Nutrition Stripped

With the sun waking up and shaking off winter, spring and summer bring about times where soup is often left behind unless we’re talking about gazpacho. To soups credit, it’s a dish that should still be incorporated into our spring and summer menus since it’s easy to make, stores well as a leftover, and most importantly the fiber can help us improve our digestion (but take it easy and read my notes on these sunchokes), making us feel great from the inside out when we might be showing a little more midriff and skin, right? The combination of zesty fresh lemon made in a delicate broth surrounding chunks of fiber rich sunchokes, make it the perfect spring soup to welcome into your repertoire!

Ultimate Vegetable Pot

The Ultimate Vegetable Pot, Nutrition Stripped

The New Year is literally around the corner in a couple of days and before you hear all about “detoxes”, “juice fasts”, and “cleanses” thrown at you from every direction- I highly recommend easing into new lifestyle and nutrition habits gradually or do so by doing it well and whole. In lieu of this, tomorrow I’ll be sharing an simple yet effective 7-day meal plan all about rebooting and rebalancing after the holiday season and starting fresh for 2015. The Ultimate Vegetable Pot can be a great way to transition into a New Year reboot and rebalance for anyone looking to increase the nutrients in their diet.

Spring Green Pea Soup

Spring Green Pea Soup // nutritionstripped.comSpring is in full bloom and with all the amazing fresh produce I’ve been enjoying lately, peas are amongst the best of them. Green peas are incredibly delicious, which is hard to believe coming from someone who used to dislike them so much growing up. Peas have a flavor and texture profile I’ve learned to love and appreciate especially in the plant-based lifestyle. This Spring Green Pea Soup highlights those very flavors I adore, slightly sweet, thick, creamy, nutty, and buttery all in the same bowl. Pair this Spring Green Pea Soup with crunchy and fresh pea shoots, pumpkin seeds, fresh chives, or garnish with Classic Cashew Cheese.

This soup is also fantastic to make ahead of time for the week ahead when you need a quick yet nourishing lunch, dinner, or side to a meal. The star of this soup are the obvious, green peas! Peas are one of my favorite vegetables this spring, which I think is rather amusing because I used to dislike them so much as a child. They’re incredibly nutrient dense with both vitamins and minerals, but even more so with protein! All of which are so important when practicing a healthy lifestyle, but especially my fellow plant-based eaters.

I’m back today to start off the New Year with a meal that I’ve been lovin’ the past week, Black-eyed Peas and Kale Soup, a traditional new year food.

I’m turning this traditional meal into a vegan friendly soup, Black-eyed Peas and Kale Soup. It’s warming, comforting, incredibly healthy, delicious, and leaves you feeling satisfied and ready to tackle the new year ahead of you.
