I rarely cook at home. When I do, I often eat soup. What are some simple and easy winter recipes?
~ Chad Greedy, climber and videoer of rocks

For those bachelor types who often go hungry in the winter months, here is my favorite and extremely simple winter soup recipe that “anyone” can make! Boil some carrots and beets ’till they are soft, with a little ginger, garlic and salt. Strain off the water and add rice milk. Blend into a soup, reheat and eat.

Enjoy this with some warm Italian bread dipped in olive oil with a touch of lemon and salt. This warm, hardy soup is perfect for cold winter nights. To follow your soup, how about a good winter tea blend? The best winter teas are similar to many chai blends and start with warming spices like ginger, clove, cardamom and cinnamon.

  1. […] Hot soups and vigorous exercise get that nose running, too. Speaking of vigorous exercise, lets talk about lymph flow. Your lymph system is your immune system, carrying white blood cells to all the regions of your body. Lots of people are so stagnant these days-working at a desk and then going home to the couch and TV. Get that lymph flowing! Vigorous exercise, mini-trampolines, massage, and dry skin brushing are superb for this. You can obtain a dry skin brush at Whole Foods. Always brush from the periphery TOWARDS the heart. […]

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
