Day 6 Butternut Squash Soup mmmmmm

Some of the making of Butternut squash soup.

Puree this before serving!
This is the kind I buy, usually at Dierbergs
(beware for this diet, the chicken broth has yeast in it)
this what the squash looks like cubed and added to softened veggies.

2 eggs and 3 fresh strawberries

Snack = none

Spinach and Romaine Salad with evoo and lime juice and a handful of sliced almonds


Butternut Squash soup
one 3 lb Butternut squash; peeled and cubed
2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil (put in pan on med-low heat), Add 1/2 Cup chopped celery, 2/3 Cup diced onion, 2/3 Cup diced carrot. Saute until soft then add 1/2 tsp thyme. Add in cubed squash and 4-6 Cups of Organic veggie broth, season with salt and pepper.

Bring this all to a boil and simmer until squash is soft. Use an immersion blender to puree.

I added a 1/2 cup of pumpkin and 1/2 cup organic unsweet applesauce.(yup, homemade)

Served with brown rice crackers and a side of steamed green beans. Heavenly.

How is it I am losing any weight on this diet? hmm.
