HEARTy Soups And Stews

Almost a year ago, I came out with this post on some hearty and healthy soups and stews. This got me through the fall season with a healthy heart and a full and satisfied stomach. Best of all, I never regretted that I ate too much of something or that it was so hearty that it was bad for me. These recipes are still, by far, my favorite soups and stews. Incredibly, they are all #PLANTSTRONG and #VEGAN. So really, you can’t go wrong. Check out the blog post and the recipes. Those links I added also lead you to some more amazing recipes out there.

Enjoy and Happy October!
