Steph recently cooked up this great Chunky Vegetable Soup from It's so good, we just had to share it again! This soup has lots of health benefits. Make enough of it and you can freeze it for next week too. Just remember, if you do decide to freeze and reheat, try if you can to slightly undercook the veg so that reheating doesn't overcook them, making them soggy.

Although this recipe calls for juicing veggies to make a broth, Steph bought her broth ready made from the Root Cellar.

The challenge is finding practical ways to use this care without adding stress to the already hectic schedule of a new mom.

Ahhhh. Everyone loves a wedding! More than that everyone loves analyzing a wedding and taking bets on how long it will last. According to Chinese Astrology every person is born into several astrological animals and elements based on the year, month, day, and time they were born. Similar to western astrology, a person’s life can be forecasted and their relationship compatibility measured based on the stars alignment at the time of their birth.
