Remember to take care of yourself yesterday?
Just checkin’ up on you to see if you logged on to http://www.spaweek.com and checked out the special deals going on all week at over 800 spas all around the country. If you haven’t done it yet, you only have until Sunday to go and take advantage of the great deals. If you can afford it at all, I highly recommend doing it.
Anyway, I have been on a “take care” kick. If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t help anyone else. In fact, I have a friend who keeps going and going and going and doing doing doing. She is now sick. Very sick with strep throat and an upper respiratory infection.
It is that time of year when the weather gets a little hinky and you don’t know whether to not to bring a jacket, wear long or short sleeves etc.. also germs are running rampant with kids back in school and bringing all those lovely new germie visitors home etc..
Proper rest and nutrition are paramount. So with that in mind, here are a two great recipes to nourish your skin and body too!
Delicious Roasted Veggies Soup
This is a thick, creamy (using no actual cream), delicious soup! The roasted veggies take about an hour but you can do this the day before to save time. After the veggies are all roasted, it takes only a few minutes til soup’s on! 🙂
- 1 sweet potato or yam – sliced
- 1 red pepper, cut in half and seeded
- 1 green pepper cut in half, seeded

- 1 large white or yellow onion – cut into quarters
- 5 cloves garlic – peeled

Mix all marinade ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
Place all the vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Toss with the marinade until coated. Make sure you use a large mixing bowl to accommodate all veggies and have plenty of room to toss ’em around and coat them completely.
Place all of the vegetables on a large baking tray or stone. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour or until vegetables are tender and soft.
Place all your delicious veggies in a food processor or blender, add hot water or chicken stock to thin to desired consistency. Heat & Serve. Add ground sea salt and pepper to taste.
