Broccoli Cilantro Soup

Broccoli Cilantro Soup (Vitamix recipe)

 

When I first got my Vitamix, I made all types of things in it. Then after a few months I used it like a regular blender. I just made smoothies in it. I have no clue why I would do such a thing. I got this Vitamix as a gift and I was so excited. I was obsessed with it. Then it just fell flat. Now, I refound my love for it and have made many recipes in it again.

 

I love the Fall, you’ll probably hear me say that again and again but I really do. I’m a September baby so right after my birthday I go into holiday mode and I love it. My future kids will be very annoyed ahah. Reminder: I’m studying to become a Nutritionist and by no means am I a chef. When I was diagnosed with UC, the kitchen became my outlet. I trained myself to cook Paleo. I fell in love with the online community of support from bloggers. My first cookbook when I started this journey was of course, Danielle Walkers’ Against All Grain. Her story still inspires me not to give up on my UC.
