I Finally Made Soup

A lot of you mentioned that you would make soup if you owned Vita-Mix. So many in fact that I almost felt guilty for never using my own Vita-Mix for soup purposes. It’s just that I’ve never been much of soup girl. Nor do I ever crave it. Well, all your comments got me thinking that perhaps I was missing out on something wonderful, and so this morning, I decided on soup for breakfast.

I had all the ingredients on hand to make Gena’s raw tortilla soup. I blended everything up in my Vita-Mix until warm. I love my blender.

Now, don’t think I forgot about Pancake Week! You CANNOT eat soup without something to dip in it, right? 😉

I made my coconut flour pancakes, omitting the protein powder, but added cumin, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and salt. Mmmm…savory pancakes and warm soup. Guess how I ate them?

Now that’s a breakfast taco!

Yesterday in my kettlebell class we did circuit training. There were 10 different stations, and we did three rounds, spending one minute at each station. My favorite were the lat pull-downs on the TRX, and I am feeling those this morning! For today’s workout, I think I might run a few sprints up the parking deck at my old gym. This used to be one of my favorite workouts – run up the ramp and then jog back down to the first level. Repeat 5 times. Quick and efficient, and it will tighten up those glutes. In other words, your butt will look amazing. :)
