Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup
Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? I had a much needed low key weekend. Things have been pretty stressful at work so it was nice to just relax and unwind. I did go out Saturday night with my Mom and Matt. We went to go see Elton John. It was incredible! He rocked out for over two and a half hours. His talent is so unbelievable. I would definitely recommend you see him live if you get a chance!

Apples & OnionsI have a really tasty recipe to share with you today. If you’ve caught my recent What I Ate Wednesday posts, you know I’ve been testing this one out for awhile. I’ve finally got my shit together to write and publish this recipe. Since I got my Vitamix, I’ve been making soup like it’s my job. It’s such a perfect thing to do if you meal prep on Sundays. You can make a huge batch and have it for lunches for the week. I’ve been loving soups lately because they are very easy to digest and they’re still filling.

Butternut Squash and Apple SoupI could attempt to ramble on about the flavour, health benefits, and ingredients for awhile but honestly, I’ve got to make it to the gym before dinner so I will just leave you with the recipe. If butternut squash is your jam, just trust me, you’ll love this.

      He was unbelievable!! And so glad you enjoyed the kale salad. Hilarious you tried to convince them to deliver it to you. It’s crossed my mind many times. I hope you feel better!

      Thanks lady! So jealous you’ve seen Shania. I’m dying to go to Vegas to see her. I heard she’s performing at the Calgary Stampede this year. I really want to go!
