Homemade Soup: Creative, Nurturing, Embodied
Last week’s post talked about the importance of Strategy of the Spirit #13: Embody Thyself.

So from time to time, I’d like to share one of my favorite soup recipes with you.

I love the embodied joy of making soup. Smelling it, eating it and sharing it. Besides, who has time to chew seven servings of vegetables a day? A big pot of soup provides healthy lunches and dinners for us for a few days.
