I will admit a slightly dark secret to you that even my mother never knew. Years ago when I was a high school student, I played hooky from school for an entire day. No, I wasn’t mischief making or running the streets with boys.  I spent the day with a friend at her home in Brooklyn. We cooked good food and watched soaps all day. For two young ladies with siblings and strict parents this was immense fun. Just to be able to stay home and enjoy good food without the threat of homework, chores, or bothersome little brothers was bliss. On that day this soup was born.

I am always changing the way I make my smoothies but I will share a simple recipe with you for one I made the other day.

Welcome to Holistic Health Vegan!

Welcome to Holistic Health Vegan. I am a vegan of two years and counting. I became a vegan in order to optimize my health.
