Sharing my super soup recipe today because I was able to borrow some dehydrating time with a friend who invited me over to teach her how to use her new dehydrator! Needless to say, we dehydrated everything but the kitchen sink and it was MUCH fun!
Although I don’t advocate eating lots of dehydrated foods (you really need to eat whole foods to reap maximum health-supportive benefits) I do support dehydrating real foods to take with you when on the go
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I choose not to eat solid food during flights – instead, I drink copious amounts of water & herbal teas to keep my gut garden hydrated and happy. When I land, I fuel my body with food that digests easily, like this yumtastic dehydrated veggie soup pictured. This bundle of goodness is my fav ‘go to’ when I travel. I change it up each time by adding different veggies, organically-grown rice or quinoa + lots of sensational gut-supportive spices.
Today, I dehydrated:
- 1 cup each of locally grown & chopped cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, brown onions & red peppers. I mixed them together, then scooped 1.5 cups of this mix.
I then added:
- 25g of organically-grown basmati rice
- 1 tsp each: ground turmeric, cumin, fennel, caraway & mint
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- Pinch of sea salt
I pack this in the coolest BPA-free travel pouch (more info to come next post) that I can easily add boiling water to if there are no bowls around. Once water is added, the veggies expand, the rice cooks & the spices work their flavourful, digestive magic – always such a treat to eat
My main msg to you today? Try something a little ‘left of centre’ every now & then! Get creative & don’t let traveling create anxiety over what to pack & eat, because as you can see, it’s actually quite easy!
As always, I hope this excites & helps you to think outside the box – remember, health-supportive eating should always be fun!
