Clean Eating Cream of Mushroom Soup

For years I always had a can or two of Campbells cream of mushroom soup in my cupboard. How could you make a casserole without it? Those cans were one of the first things to get cleared out when I began cleaning up my diet. Maybe you did the same thing with a little sigh, thinking never to have casseroles again.

Clean Eating Indian Spiced Mung Bean Soup

Mung beans. I have to admit the name doesn’t sound that appetizing but I have been seeing them used quite a bit lately so I decided to see what they were all about. Mung beans offer 14 gms of protein per cooked cup and are also a good source of dietary fiber. They contain thiamin, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and copper, and are a good source of folate. I used sprouted mung beans for this recipe and according to the package they...

Clean Eating One Pot Miso Soup

The past couple of weeks we (my family) have all been participating in the “share and share alike” maxim by passing along a nasty little cold germ to one another. I was the latest victim. I was in need of some chicken soup but being vegetarian I needed another option. A nice nourishing miso soup would do the trick. This is a basic recipe for miso soup. It can be changed to suit your taste by adding whatever vegetables you like, cubed...
