Hope you guys enjoyed your weekend.

I spent the weekend in my closet.  Yes, I know riveting right?  I basically went through and took piles to make more piles and refolded everything.  I did manage to get a good pile of items to give to good will.  I have a problem parting with stuff sometimes.  It is always the “what if’s” that make me hesitate.  Though I do feel liberated now that closet cleaning is off my “to do list.”

I also spent time pulling out my biking stuff, because next week I am going on a trip to California to go biking through the wine country.  OH MY GOD, I am so excited.  Though I am worried about my hiney.  I mean I do bike, and spin regularly, but let’s face it sitting on a bike for hours ain’t’ the same as biking for 30 or more miles a day.  I might just be that women who wear two pairs of padded bike shorts the first day, just to make sure I can make it onto the bike on day two.  I won’t be sharing pictures of that, so don’t ask.

Baked Sweet Potato Soup is a creamy good for you easy to prepare soup | ahealthylifeforme.comEnough about my hiney worries and onto this AMAZING soup.

I can not tell you enough how darn good this soup is, but I am going to try.  This is so good, so good, so good.

The ingredients are such a happy blending of flavors it just sings in your mouth.  The sweet potato and coconut were made to be together and the bit of kick from the red pepper topped off with some crispy salty bacon.  SO GOOD!

I hope you try this recipe, you won’t be disappointed with its flavor or how healthy it is.  If you make this recipe, please let me know! Leave a comment below or take a photo and tag me on Instagram or Twitter with #ahealthylifeforme.

  1. Cooked it! Loved it! I was worried it wasn’t going to be thick enough but adding the mashed sweet potato made it perfect.
    I also stirred some bacon pieces through the soup and put a dollop of sour cream on top (not so healthy but very yummy)
