This weekend I came across a "splendid soups" magazine. When I first picked it up I wondered if I would find many useful recipes. Hours later I had bookmarked nearly half of them. Now I am hungry for nothing but soup, so this week it is on the menu four out of six days.

I also am roasting up the last of the 30 pound turkey – two wings and a leg. That will provide meat for a few meals as well as turkey stock for all of our soups.

After giving the Body Ecology Diet a try last week I realized how poorly I do with so many grains, even if they are gluten-free and high in protein. So this week I continue my candida cleanse with no grains, no sugar, and almost no dairy. The mornings that the boys eat porridge I will most likely be trying some miso soup with greens or some leftover protein and vegetables.
