Autumn is upon us and this soup could not be tastier, and not to mention easy peasy to make.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Organic Soba Noodles
Soba Noodle

Mushrooms (I used Shitake, Belly Bella, Oyster).

Mushrooms

Celery

Carrots

Red Cabbage

Broccoli

Spinach

Sugar Snap Peas

Scallions

Vegetable Soba Noodle Soup

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s What You Do:

In a large sauce pan bring the quart of stock to a boil. Add all of the vegetables in order of most dense (needs more time to cook) to least.

 

Stock and Veg
Before adding the fast cooking vegetables in another sauce pan, bring 4-6 cups of boiling water to a boil. Once it is at a steady boil add a few pinches of salt and add Soba noodles (you may need to add a little olive oil so the noodles don’t stick to one another). Follow cooking instructions.

Cooked Soba

 

Once all the veggies are cooked to your likeness, spoon into bowl and add a sprinkle of chopped green onion.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Green SmoothyThis recipe is super simple and packed with extra good for you whole foods.

All you need is a high powered blender of some sort. In my case I like using a Nutri Bullet because of its size (great for portion control), its motor, cost (about $99 at Bed Bath and Beyond), and cleanup.

For this recipe I used:

~ Two handfuls of baby spinach

~ One banana

~ One packet of RAW brand protein powder

~ About a 1/2 cup of frozen berries and mangos

~ Almond milk

~ Bee pollen

~ Spirulina

This is just a basic outline to the possibilities of a green smoothy. Adding flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds would also be a great added source of nutrition.

Put all of the ingredients into a blender, blitz away and enjoy.

Let me know what you like in your smoothies.

Bee pollen is the food of the young bee and it is approximately 40% protein. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. It contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be sued directly by the body. Such highly assimilable protein can contribute significantly to one’s protein needs.

* Spirulina is a natural “algae” (cyanbacteria) powder that is incredible high in protein and nutrients.
