Soup for the Soul

“Happiness is…hot soup on a cold day!”

This soup tastes like more!  It’s simply delicious and really hits the spot, especially on cold days like today.  And who can really say no to a bowl of butternut squash soup on a day when the temperatures are in the single digits?  We love this simple recipe courtesy of Nutritional Therapist and owner of ANU Wellness, Claire Grady.
