1 large butternut squash
1 can (15 ounce) pure pumpkin
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large sweet yellow onion peeled, halved and roughly chopped
one bag or baby carrots, diced or sliced
1 generous cup diced apples (you may include the peels)
2 medium cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon mild curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
8 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 generous cup apple juice
2 teaspoons salt or more to taste
½ cup Greek yogurt, full fat (it’s ok! You will want the fat, I promise!)
¼ freshly ground black pepper
salt to taste
Roasted pine nuts
To roast pine nuts, melt butter in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Add nuts and stir to coat. Sprinkle with paprika, curry powder and salt. Continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously, or until they begin to turn golden. Taste and add a bit more salt, if needed. Remove from heat.
I reached 200 pounds after having my children and several things have led me down my path of wanting to be healthier and better for myself and for my family; countless fitness dvds, a gym membership, leading a weight management class at my church and a personal trainer telling me I had good symmetry. I have learned many things on my fitness journey, but the one thing that I hear over and over no matter what size they are, is the self-talk that many women tell themselves regarding the way they see themselves. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have the tools and wisdom of the people around me to help women of all shapes and dynamics to help them on their journey.
