This soup is delicious chilled, which makes this the perfect comfort food for summer.

It’s super easy to make, and even easier with an immersion (hand) blender. If you don’t have one, you blend it in a regular blender or vitamix. Just make sure you cool the mixture a bit before blending in a regular blender because the steam might make a messy explosion. yikes!



Avocado Yam Soup with Bacon Garnish

1 large or 2 medium Japanese Yam (about 1 lb – 1 1/2 lb.)

1/4 red onion, sliced

2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. coriander
salt and pepper

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
