Scripture to help us remember why we need to take care of our bodies!

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. NLT

Crazy But Good FOR YOU Soup!

I could not believe how beautiful this soup was to make! I have to say I was impressed with the overall results. Found this recipe on website.
Make sure to use organic ingredients when making this soup.

1 large onion or leek chopped
1 bunch of beets (about 3) peeled and chopped. Stems and leaves removed
1 large bunch of swiss chard, chopped (stems and leaves)
1 large butternut squash, peeled and chopped
Extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper (to taste)

Add oil to large pot and saute onions for 2-3 min
Add beets and squash. Add enough water to cover veggies and bring to boil and cook for 10-12 min. Add swiss chard and add more water if needed to cover. Cook for another 10 to 12 minutes or until squash, beets, and chard stems are soft. Remove from heat.

Scoop out into a blender and blend until smooth until all soup is blended. Add salt and pepper.

Freeze some for a quick healthy soup any time you want.

Pair with a great spinach salad. I added shredded red cabbage, carrots, cranberries, chopped almonds, tomatoes and balsamic olive oil dressing and chicken!! YUM!

End result is a little weird I have to say, looks like ketchup but surprisingly it tastes pretty good. If you are not a big beet fan you may not like this soup but if you are more interested in the health benefits of this soup you may just see past the beet taste. I can honestly say that I am not a beet fan and enjoyed this soup. Worth a try. If anything you can always give it away to someone who is a beet fan!!
