It’s National Soup Swap Day!  I love a good soup in the dead of winter, don’t you? This recipe for Dairy Free Cream of Asparagus is going to rock your world! 

I’ve been trying to do a sugar detox these past two weeks and I think it’s going pretty well! I’ve always found the key to a successful sugar detox is meal prep. I’m picky about what leftovers I eat so I need to be strategic on meal prepping things that I feel like reheat well. I also don’t like sandwiches that much, nor many salads. Well, I just don’t like prepping salads! I don’t mind eating them if someone else makes them for me! Soups are good and I don’t mind it reheated.

I also don’t mind most proteins or veggies reheated. I really like hot dogs. Don’t know why, I just do. I just have to be careful on the brands of hot dogs I eat now. Applegate and Teton Waters are some of my favorites. They’re organic and have no added sugar. I’ve never understood why most smoked meats have sugar in them. Why do you need to add sugar to a smoked product? We don’t expect it to be sweet when we buy it, right? Is it for preservation? I’m not really sure.

 

It’s National Soup Sway Day!

 

I digress. Last Sunday, I was contemplating what I should meal prep. I had some random bits of vegetables leftover and thought, Soup! That will be great for lunches next week! I’d been meaning to try a dairy free “cream” of asparagus and asparagus was on sale last week so I picked up a bunch. I used cauliflower to give it a creaminess along with a couple of tablespoons of Kite Hill plain yogurt. You could also use coconut milk but that might give it a sweetness you don’t want. I’m not sure, I haven’t tried it. This soup was super easy to make. You just boil it on the stove and then throw it all in a blender or use an immersion blender. I have Cuisinart’s immersion blender and love it! You can find it HERE on Amazon. Makes blending soups or salad dressings a piece of cake!
