Halloween Soup

With Halloween coming up tomorrow, you want to make sure you and others around you are well-fed! Whether you are trick or treating, partying, giving out candy, or just enjoying yourself, a good meal is essential. That’s why Hungry and I have come up with the ultimate Halloween Soup. It’s really not as spooky as it sounds–well it is terrifyingly good, I suppose. Aaaand it doesn’t photograph well nor is it pretty at all, but remember LOOKS don’t matter when it comes to deliciousness. It’s a very simple recipe, but yields terrific results. It’s perfect for the autumn weather–will bring you warm, happy feelings as you slurp it down.

This Halloween Soup is perfect for that scary, brisk day. It is a crowd-pleaser and a family-pleaser. Did we mention how important it is to have a full stomach for festivities? Especially for your little ones for trick or treating! We used Silk Coconutmilk to make sure there was no soy or dairy milk in order to accommodate our friends! It also brings out that richness that goes well with a Fall soup, but leaves out the immense calories! We definitely appreciate that. If you want more recipes like ours, check out Silk’s Facebook page. There are tons of amazing recipes and also general life tips that keep you healthy day to day. Also, sign up for Silk’s newsletter to have the chance to win a year’s supply of Silk! Don’t mind if I do!

Enjoy this Halloween with friends, family, and beyond. Remember to be safe, don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your little ones out without a full belly! No one likes hangry children (yes I said hangry)…or adults for that matter. So fill yourself with goodness and have a very Happy Halloween. And as always… stay hungry and fit!

The Easiest Black Bean Soup You’ll Ever Make

If you’ve been following our blog, you’ll know it’s been pretty rainy here in Colorado (see my thunderstorm run). I wanted an easy, hearty dish to fill our stomachs with warmth and comfort on another rainy night. I got the recipe from here, and added my own goodies to it. The simplicity of this “soup” is ridiculous. Seriously. And it’s vegan too, if that’s how you want it.

  • Prep Time: 1 min
  • Cooking Time: 10 min
  • Serves: 3-4 normal people

Ingredients

  • 2 cans black beans¬†
  • 1 bag frozen veggies
  • your own blend of spices
  • [optional] mushrooms

Directions

  • Put 2 cans black beans into the pot and start simmering in a pot
  • This is optional, but I put about 3 cloves of garlic into the pot as well

  • Add your frozen veggies and any other herbs, spices, or veggies you would like (or meat)

  • Let it simmer for at least 10 minutes (until everything is warm) and stir occasionally. If you are cooking ahead of time, it doesn’t hurt to simmer as long as you want to for deeper flavor
  • Serve with a side (I did cornbread)

I prepared all of this before a workout. After the core workout (sample core workout here), I came home, popped the cornbread batter in the oven, and heated the soup up again on the stove. It was definitely the perfect meal for a rainy night and I get to enjoy it again for a rainy lunch. It has ample amounts of protein for my healing muscles and great fiber for the whole body.

Cheers! Stay hungry and fit!
