Nutrition and the state of things and avocado soup

The state of things

While we were driving through the US we had all the time in the world to think about the state of our business and the way forward. I seem to be in this mood lately where I question just about everything I have been doing so far. Is it something that comes with age? Or is it just me going through a midlife crisis…? Lol..

Whole30

In january of this year I started with a new course. This one was all about hormones and how they affect everyone in every day life. Interesting, but the course itself is a bit of letdown. It’s not what I thought it would be and the teacher is mostly very annoying. I’m almost at the end of the course but because I haven’t done any learning I’ve decided to quit. Weird timing probably but I just don’t feel the motivation to spend anymore time on it. Not my cup of tea.

Instead I have applied and have been accepted to start the process for whole30 coach. It’s something I am passionate about and have been thinking about for a while. So that is my new direction.

I still have to pass of course and am studying hard right now. I’ve done roughly 6 whole30’s sofar and love what it does to my mind and body. I just have to brush up on some of the more detailed information out there.

With that said: this soup is not whole30 approved as it contains green peas. Technically a legume and therefore not whole30 approved. Wether you eat it or not is entirely up to you of course but I love green peas and they give a hint of sweetness to this avocado soup that is rich and creamy and delicious.

If you do want to make the soup and if you are currently doing a whole30 I would suggest replacing the green peas for maybe spinach just leave them out entirely. I am not sure what that will do to the flavor but trying doesn’t hurt. If you need it to be a bit more sweet maybe adding a few dates will do the trick.
