Road Trip Detox Part One: Chilled Sweet Potato Carrot Soup
Since Ian and I ate a ton of fatty, greasy, not exactly healthful foods for almost two weeks on vacation, I quickly returned our daily eats to the kind of comforting whole foods we usually eat on a daily basis. My first object was to get some veggies into our systems, so I decided to just barely cook one giant sweet potato (a little longer than the rest of the ingredients, obviously), 1/2 an onion, and three giant organic carrots in olive oil. Once soft, I added them to the blender and then added about a cup of chicken stock. After chilling overnight, I ate a few bowls over the week along with a garnish of fat free Chobani and a few sprigs of cilantro.
