The first indicator of Fall has crept up on us here in Toronto; chillier weather. To satisfy those chills, one of my main go-to’s is a pot of steaming hot soup! It’s an added bonus that it is also easy to work into a busy weekday schedule. Soups can be as simple as just a few key ingredients, or as complex as the Davinci Code. It’s about what you’re in the mood for! First on my list is one of my favorites from my book Sprout Right Family Food; Corn, Coconut, and Ginger Soup. Follow the recipe below and hopefully, it will inspire more cozy, warm family meals.
Dairy, Egg, Gluten, Nut, and Wheat Free. Vegetarian and vegan.
Makes 6 cups
TIP: For a fast chop, pulse the carrots, onion, and garlic in your food processor.
This is a colorful, antioxidant-rich soup with immune-boosting properties from the garlic, onion, and meat broth (if using). It’s also a good source of vitamin A and calcium.
Halloween can be a parent’s worst nightmare. Just picture those sugar-infused little bodies that ultimately crash at the end of a late night in the form of one doozy of a tantrum. Now that’s a scary Halloween.

It’s that time again (I can hear the groan from here)! Time to think about packing school lunches every day for the next school year. I’m thinking that it might make you want to run and hide. How about something different this year? Take the pressure off and get your kids to make their own lunch. Yes, it is possible, I promise.
