Zucchini Soup

Can I share my good fortune with you? Two amazing gifts today. One is that my friends arrived from the states with a bag of gifts from my kids, including the laptop and a ganesh statue, whoaaa!
The second is that I rode my bike over to San Joaquin, the area where Matt and Angela Monarch of the Raw Food World live. I gave Matt and friend a yoga lesson, and they hired me to do the yoga classes for their raw food retreats! Six days this month, and potentially four times a year, with the future prospect of doing chi kung and reiki for people, what!!!

In a medium-sized cooking pot, add broth and bring to boil. Add zucchini/potato mixture; reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes.

Word of the Day – chendo – kidding

Tip of the Day – You don’t need to cook soup too long. A lot of people seem to keep soups on the fire forever. Just cook it long enough for the vegetables to get tender. Then turn it off and let the flavors mix.
