Quick and Easy Broccoli Soup Recipes
What could be more satisfying than a broccoli soup which is easy to make – and good for you too? Broccoli has many health promoting qualities, is cheap and easy to cook with. Oh, and broccoli is low in calories too…….
Choose from a sumptuous cream of broccoli soup, a simple healthy broccoli soup recipe and even a creamy soup without dairy. Get some great tips on how to buy, prepare and how best to store broccoli and find out why something that tastes so good can also benefit your health.
2 tablespoons butter
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped celery stalk
3 cups broth (chicken or vegetable)
8 cups broccoli florets
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan – a medium stock pot is the best to use. Add the finely chopped onions and celery and saute until soft.
Add the broccoli and the stock to the pan. You can use either chicken or vegetable stock depending on your taste and preference. Simmer for approx 10 minutes until the broccoli is tender. Be careful not to overcook as this spoils the flavor. Puree the soup in a blender and our back into the saucepan.
In a separate pan make a roux mixture (the basis for many sauces). This is what adds the creamy taste and texture.
Heat the 3 tablespoons of butter until melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the flour. When the butter and flour are combined return to the heat for a short while.
Remove the roux mixture from the heat and slowly add the milk until all of it is combined. If it becomes lumpy use a whisk to smooth it out. Return the mixture to the heat and gently heat. The mixture will gradually thicken.
Add the roux to your cooked broccoli and gently reheat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
How to Choose and Store Broccoli
Buy broccoli in season (from October through May) and locally if possible. Organic is always my first choice.
When shopping for broccoli choose tight, deep colored florets. The deeper the color the more phytonutrients. Usually the smaller the broccoli head the better the flavor.
Broccoli is best used within a few days for maximum taste and nutritional value. The place to store it is in the hydrator drawer or crisper of the refrigerator. It will keep for 5 to 7 days. Never wash the broccoli before you store it as it may develop mold.
Broccoli freezes really well too. Cut into florets and slice the stems. Blanch for 3-4 minutes and then rinse in cold water (this is to stop the cooking process). Drain the broccoli and let it dry. Place is an airtight container and freeze. Buying frozen broccoli can also be a good choice.

Keep the healthy eating exciting and fun. Make fun snacks like ants on a log and fruits veggies cut into fun shapes with hummus. You can also let your kids help out in the kitchen with you, so they can have fun making their own snacks. That way, the kids are encouraged to keep on making their own healthy snacks.
If you have a local farmers market, take your kids with you and show them all of the fresh produce and where it comes from. Let them pick out new produce that they never tried before, and prepare a fun meal with the new foods at home. They’ll have a lot of fun discovering new foods and dishes.
Always have an encouraging attitude towards your children’s healthy eating, because then your kids will get the message that you LOVE it when they eat healthy, so they’ll be even more encouraged to eat healthy.
Make sure to always have healthy foods around the house, so if your kids are hungry, then they can quickly grab a healthy snack to eat, and they don’t start searching for food and end up eating junk food.
Don’t be too strict on their healthy eating. If you totally restrict he consumption of junk food, your children might get tired of healthy food and only want to eat junk food. It’s okay to let them have treats like cookies and chips in moderation. That way, their eating habits are balanced and they are always content with their food.
I hope this helps!

Yes, you can! It can be helpful to take high-nutrient food supplements like cod liver oil, high-vitamin butter oil, and brewer’s yeast, but yes – you can get everything you need from healthy eating.
That said – what do you mean by healthy eating? If you mean lots of veggies and hardly any meats and fat, as is recommended by today’s doctors, then no, you can not. Fat soluble vitamins like A, D and K are not readily available in vegetables, so it’s important to make sure you get enough fats.
If you use full-fat dairy products from grass-fed cows, you will go a long way towards getting enough of these vital nutrients. It would be best if you rid your house and body of vegetable oils, vegetable shortening and margarines, and anything made from these products like store-bought baked goods, and just ate whole foods cooked with butter, olive oil, organic lard.
It may also help you to purchase organic vegetables, if you can find a good source (I can’t where I live). Today’s food is grown on food plots that are so overused, and fertilized to grow so quickly, that the plants are unable to draw normal amounts of nutrients from the soil, and so are less nutritive than organically grown vegetables. So, plenty of greens and sweet potatoes instead of regular.
In addition, it can help to switch to celtic sea salt, as this contains minerals in addition to adding flavor to your food.
It is important to eat all vegetables with a healthy serving of fat, such as butter, as the butter will help you metabolize the nutrients and minerals in the vegetables.
Eat plenty of eggs – cholesterol is a vital nutrient for your growing baby. Remember that our brains are 60% cholesterol by weight. You wouldn’t want to deprive your little one of this necessary nutrient.
Below, I have posted a website where I found the best Cod Liver Oil and the only High Vitamin Butter Oil that I know of in existence – both from Green Pasture’s. Their CLO is the only one available on the market today that does not strip the CLO of their original vitamin content, then add back in cheaper chemically manufactured versions of vitamins A and D. It is a naturally fermented food product.
And speaking of fermented foods, there isn’t a better way to help your body metabolize nutrients than eating and drinking fermented foods. So make sure you learn how to lacto-ferment foods and experiment and find somethign you like. I like saurkraut, and making it yourself out of purple cabbage is a great (and unbelievably easy) way to add both nutrient density and fermented food to your diet.
Have fun and enjoy your pregnancy!

5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!
In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.
A business Model gives a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.
Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.
Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.
The more the Business Model Analysis a person does, the more exposed he gets to real life corporate situations.
Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.
Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).
Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.
