Spectacular Simple Smoky Split Pea Soup

Before I get to today’s post, I’m excited to tell you about the free live webinar series I’m offering–starting tonight! (Thursday, February 19, 2015).  Based on reader questions, I’ll begin talking about candida and why it’s more than just sugar cravings; then move to other topics such as how to deal with cravings or stick with it for the long haul. If you think you might be dealing with candida or just want to cut refined sugar from your life, I hope you’ll join me! There will be a live Q&A at the end. If people enjoy the videos, I’ll continue them as a regular feature. Get more details and reserve your seat here.]

The hardest part about this vegan split pea soup is saying the name out loud three times (go on, try it. . . betcha can’t). Tongue-twisters aside, this was one of the most delicious soups the HH and I have ever had. And it is so EASY to make–woop woop!

I’ve made split pea soup exactly one time before this one–when I was in my early 20s and had just moved into my very first apartment on my own.

Are you a romantic? I’m pretty sure I’m what you’d call a “hopeless romantic.” Did I cry at Titanic? Let’s just say I felt responsible for at least 50% of all that gushing water that swept Jack away from Rose while I was watching that movie. Do I hoard  save mementos from my former beaux? […]

If you follow a whole-foods or traditional diet, you’ve probably eaten your fair share of lacto-fermented sauerkraut (in fact, it’s probably fair to guess that you’ve even made some from scratch, right?).

[photo: Nicole Axworthy] Okay, before I even begin today’s post, let me state unequivocally: I am not going to make any references whatsoever to the Super Bowl.
