Two of my favorite fall dishes are butternut squash soup and roasted acorn squash.  So, naturally one of the first recipes that stuck out to me in the Google Cookbook was this acorn squash soup recipe.

For some reason, there seems to be this misconception that soups are difficult to make. This, however, is a very simple soup dish that any novice cook can easily execute.

Healing Soup Series 3 of 3: Garlic and Spinach Soup Recipe

...the last recipe in our Healing Soup Series. Previous posts include, Beet Soup Recipe and Immune Booster Soup Recipe . Don't worry we will be moving away from soups, at least for awhile. Keep an eye out for a truly crowd pleasing recipe this weekend!

So, back to the Garlic and Spinach Soup recipe. It should be no surprise to you that garlic and spinach also have wonderful help benefits. Garlic is claimed to help prevent heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and cancer. From the moment we first saw Popeye as children we were aware of the fact that spinach would help us to grow up big and strong. Spinach has a large nutritional value, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled (as in this Garlic and Spinach Soup Recipe). It is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, and several vital antioxidants.

Healing Soup Series 1 of 3: Beet Soup Recipe

If you are looking for a way to give your body a fighting chance during this cold season be sure to eat foods rich in vitamins A, C and E. I came across these recipes last December, compliments of Yoga Journal (Issue 199) and LOVE them! In this first segment you will find a Beet Soup Recipe , segment 2 will feature an Immune Booster Soup Recipe , and 3 a Garlic and Spinach Soup Recipe .

Although some aren't opposed to smoking some weed, fewer would think of eating one - particularly beets. I know, beets? Yes and I encourage you to give them a chance, from the moment I tried this beet soup recipe it has become a favorite of mine...and I didn't even like beets! What better time to try them, afterall, they are in season, not to mention that viruses are running rampant this time of year.
