Fresh Tomato Carrot Soup 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a most delicious tomato soup. I prefer to use fresh tomatoes but you may use canned if you prefer. I like to make a country loaf of gluten free bread to serve with this but a chive and goat cheese corn bread or French bread would work as well.

Ingredients:
3c fresh tomatoes peeled and chopped
or 1 28oz can whole tomatoes undrained
2 slices of GF bacon finely chopped
1 small onion finely chopped
1 medium carrot grated
2c chicken broth or water
¼ tsp paprika
? tsp pepper
4 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp water


Directions:
Finely chop tomatoes and set aside. Chop onion and set aside. Grate carrot and set aside. Chop the bacon and place in a medium size pot. Brown the bacon. Drain fat reserving 1 Tbsp of the bacon fat in the pot. Sauté the onion with the browned bacon 3 – 4 minutes. Add carrots. tomatoes (plus liquid if using canned) and broth. Stir. Bring to a boil. Add seasonings. Simmer 10 minutes.
Combine cornstarch and water into a smooth paste. Add to soup stirring constantly until thickened. Adjust for salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with fresh bread of your choice.
Makes 5 (1cup) servings.

Ten Steps to a Healthy Father's Day
Forget the tie or the power tool, the best way to tell your dad you love him this Father's Day is to give him a gift that will help him live a long, healthy and happy life. While making an appointment to get his prostate checked may be a wee bit too clinical (and controversial) for Father's Day, and giving him the grandchildren he's been begging for may not be in the cards, there are loads of great ways to give the gift of health to the dad in your life.

Recipe
Blueberry and Almond Cake. No Sugar. No Butter. No Flour.
Category: Desserts
Description: This blueberry and almond cake has no sugar, flour or butter, but it still tastes great! Make it at the weekend and serve with berries and Greek yogurt.

Health Benefits of Almonds are a great source of vitamin E, with 25g providing 70 percent of the recommended daily allowance. They contain more calcium than any other nut which makes them great for vegetarians who do not eat any dairy products.

Health Benefits of Almonds are that they are high in antioxidants and their potential benefits for the nervous system and for brain health, there is exciting new evidence that blueberries can improve memory. In a study involving older adults (with an average age of 76 years), 12 weeks of daily blueberry consumption was enough to improve scores on two different tests of cognitive function including memory. While participants in the study consumed blueberries in the form of juice, three-quarters of a pound of blueberries were used to make each cup of juice. As participants consumed between 2 to 2-1/2 cups each day, the participants actually received a very plentiful amount of berries. The authors of this study were encouraged by the results and suggested that blueberries might turn out to be beneficial not only for improvement of memory, but for slowing down or postponing the onset of other cognitive problems frequently associated with aging.
New studies make it clear that we can freeze blueberries without doing damage to their delicate anthocyanin antioxidants.
