I am about to unveil my absolute favourite soup for this time of year, and you are going to want to double the batch and freeze half for another time! Simple ingredients: butternut squash, onion, garlic, potatoes and peppers! All roasted to bring out their flavours and then blended to perfection!
This is our traditional Pumpkin Pie recipe – for thanksgiving or Christmas! I feel pretty good about making this pie because the recipe calls for fresh mashed pumpkin, rather than canned (although you could easily substitute).
I named this the Hormone Balancing Green Smoothie because of its amazing hormone health benefits. Plant-based foods are a source of phytosterols that can modulate excess estrogen levels, and the greens in this recipe support the liver to balance hormone levels. Healthy fats and fiber found in avocado, coconut, nuts and seeds are essential for hormone production, improve the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and keep the colon functioning well to excrete excess hormones. Additional protein provides the building blocks of hormones and helps to balance blood sugar levels.
