Spicy Parsnip Soup & Sweet Potato Salad

Wednesday, 26 November 2014


It's been four days since I last touched a chicken nugget. Four days since I last uttered 'Can we get some more bread please?'. Four days since I shoved on my trainers to do the chocolate run to the corner shop.
I'VE BEEN SOME HEALTHY VEGAN BITCH FOR FOUR DAYS AND I'M EXASPERATINGLY PROUD.

It's actually easier than you think to eat clean. Food that's good for you can taste spectacular if you don't just bite into a raw carrot and expect it to curb your carb cravings. 
This spicy parsnip soup with a sweet potato salad is filled with things that are brilliant for you and it tastes pretty damn good too.
Preheat your oven to 180C and then chop your parsnips and cover them in olive oil and chilli and bake them for around 45 minutes
At the same time on a separate baking tray, place chopped sweet potato and drizzle them with some olive oil and a pinch of sea salt for 45 minutes
Let the parsnips and sweet potato cool and then chuck all of the soup ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth! 
Whilst you heat up your soup in a pan, throw all of the salad ingredients together and give a big squeeze of lime over the top!
Ta-da!

Let me know if you try it out :-)

  2. Oh god not you too Charly. Eating this vegan stuff u can say hello to flat chest and goodbye bras. If healthy means still looking female I'm all for it, but show me a girl who still has curves and eats vegan.

    1. Uh oh.. educate your ignorance! Bodies and builds aren't just about the food we put in our bodies, a lot of us are born a certain way. I have friends who are size 8's that fill themselves with chocolate and takeaways who'll never see a curve but ultimately wont be healthy inside. I know that regardless of what I do or don't eat I'll always be a curvy girl, but it's about knowing what I'm putting in my body is good for me and not what may or may not effect my figure.

    2. The hardest thing about being vegan, is dealing with idiots; nice work Charly! x

    3. Very rude and immature to call someone an idiot just because they have a different opinion? Yes?!
