  1. Yum, a vegan hot and sour soup. Down 4# since Sunday.

  2. Yum, a vegan hot and sour soup. Down 4# since Sunday, despite a couple bad eating choices.

  3. Yum! I love hot and sour soup, but have never made it before. And I’ve never heard of Braggs liquid aminos before – what do they do?

    • Oh! The liquid amino’s are just a healthier, gluten free version of soy sauce. I love them. You could totally do this with soy sauce and swirl in a beaten egg for a more traditional hot and sour soup.

      Hot and Sour is the one thing I used to have to order every time we’d go out for Chinese!

    You are totally inspirational. Do you coach others?

    • Um, no ;) Not really qualified. Full time mom, part time blogger. Maybe someday! JL Goes Vegan is a great coach though, and she has all the credentials!

  5. OK…not finding the apple pie smoothie. Is it another link? That looks awesome.

    • Oh, it should link to the recipe, but I’ll give it to you hear, I’m in love with it:
      2 small apples
      2 C. greens (I used spinach)
      1 banana
      1 T. apple butter
      1 C. water
      1 1/2 C. ice
      1 t. ground cinnamon
      stevia to taste

      Enjoy!

  6. So delicious and satisfying Somer!
    Hope you are enjoying the weekend :-)

  7. So I have been doing this for two days now and I really like it! I like the energy that I have (not that I was low on it to begin with). I followed your black bean soup recipe and made one small change. I love to have a smokey flavor in my foods so I used my Cameron’s stove top smoker and smoked the beans before adding them to the soup and it turned out great! Thank you for posting this challenge it has greatly reduced my frustration!

  8. Great ideas. I might try the hot and sour soup as I have some tofu waiting to be used. The Frozen wasteland reminds me of Calgary on a typical winter day.

  9. you are unstoppable! i want this soup!

  10. Soup looks so yummy! Great for a chinese food craving!

  11. What kind of blender do you use? I’m looking to upgrade and I’ve heard wonderful things about the Vitamix blender but it doesn’t look like you’re using one, and your results look great!

  12. Waw! What a nutriously looking soup! Yum & dead easy too! I love your smoothies too!

    Hi Somer! 3 friends and I are on day 5 of your challenge. It has been awesome! I was wondering where we are getting the fat? Beans?

    • There are small amounts of fat in everything. Most of the fat in the plan comes from flax, chia or the other nuts and seeds in the salad dressings. Beans are an excellent source of fiber and protein, but they are very low in fat. Hope that answers your question.
