Healthy Meals for Moms: Butternut Squash Soup

Healthy Meals for Healthy Moms

I try to keep dinner early and light, since our digestive fire (agni) is weak at the end of the day.

This means that a heavy dinner just makes us heavy; a light dinner will help make us lighter.

Soups are great in the winter. I love this one – it is super easy, and satisfying.

Butternut Squash Soup with Sweet Potato

In a large pot, sauté chopped garlic (5-6 cloves).

Add sliced yellow onions – sauté til soft in olive oil.

Cut large pieces of butternut squash (a Trader Joe’s package saves lots of time), carrot, parsnips, and sweet potato.

Add thyme, pepper, and any other seasonings you like.

Add veggie broth.  Add more or less, depending how thin or thick you want it (to cut the salt, do half water/half broth).

Boil and then simmer for 30-60 min.

Pour in blender or food processor, blend, and eat.

Note: leftovers don’t really work for giving you prana, or natural nourishing energy.  Try to get in the habit of making just enough!

Thank you for spreading the Ma love!

Sometimes as a yoga teacher you forget two things: One is that not everyone is going to like the style of your teaching and two, you forget to continue to be a student of the practice. I felt this way for a little over a year about the avenue of what type of yoga I want to focus on teaching and how I could get more experience to be able to feel confident in my teaching skills. This is when I found Ma Yoga.
