The holidays are soon to be upon us and when they arrive, chances are they’re going to do their best to wreak havoc with the healthy habits we’ve worked so hard all year to cultivate. Our diets will change. Our workout routines will change. And our mindsets will change.
Healthy eating will become a distant memory and social obligations will supersede personal promises. We’ll eat more and exercise less for the sake of attending holiday parties and pageants, and partaking in family feasts and religious rituals. But is it really worth sacrificing a year’s worth of hard work for one month of indulgence?
The leaves may off the trees, but there’s still time to enjoy fall’s favorite fruit (yep, pumpkin is a fruit). This savory soup is buttery, earthy, sweet and subtly spicy.
