A weekend full of Butternut Squash & Bracelets

Happy Sunday Everyone, I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Today is Day 3 of 8 in my little super healthy kick start and boy, I am feeling good!

I decided to do this because I had just eaten my way through February and mostly because it is a part of my mini goals I’ve been talking about: creating healthy habits that will bring me closer to long term goals and plans I have.

I’ve worked both days this weekend, so I decided that getting up a bit earlier and working out or journaling would also be beneficial and helpful and getting together a good morning routine. I’m discovering time is key! Yesterday, I was able to get in a great workout and this morning, mindful journaling!


I wanted to share with you the soup the detox soup I have been living off of and while continue to do so for the next few days. The recipe comes from Molly Sims, you can find it here.


What you need/What I used:

  • 2 cups of cubed butternut squash
  • Salt and pepper (if desired, I skipped the salt)
  • Half an onion
  • 1 peeled carrot, chopped
  • 1 chopped stick, chopped
  • 5 cups fat-free chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves, cut into quarters
  • 4 sage leaves
  • 1/2 cup Almond milk

Processed with VSCO with fs16 preset

Peel the squash and remove the seeds. Cut into cubes. In a large pot, combine all your ingredients minus the almond milk. Bring to a boil. Once at a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for about 40/45 minutes. Remove the sage and using a blender, add almond milk and puree. I only have a nutribullet so I let the ingredients cool before blending.


I serve with a salad that consists of mixed leaves massaged with olive oil, pepper, banana peppers, kalamata olives, and onion. However, mixing up the veggies or seasoning is an option!

In an effort to increase my side hustle (saving is my middle name these days :)), I became a rep for a brand that I recently found and love so much! The story behind the brand is amazing and inspiring! Read about it here!
