Sweet Potato Soup with a touch of Garam Masala

This week’s recipe comes to us from Jane Spice.

Last night was our annual crab fest gathering with a few of my special friends. We plan our crab dinner within the first week of crab season in San Francisco. I love crab, and crab to me is a big deal.

But last night, it was this sweet potato soup that stole the show. We forgot about the crab, and instead couldn’t stop singing the virtues of this simple sweet potato soup.

Sweet potato is the key ingredient in this soup recipe, and is enriched with the addition of cashews and tomato sauce. The soup is soft, silky, lightly sweet, and heart warming. A touch of garam masala spice – which is an Indian spice blend works perfectly here. It gives the soup the depth of flavor and warmth. We topped each bowl with creme fraiche and cilantro for an added flavor kick.

This is a knockout soup, and I can’t wait to make it again.


Bake the sweet potatoes in foil for about 45 minutes in oven at 400 (make sure to pierce the skin of the potato to help them breathe while cooking) Let the potatoes cool (half an hour) Peel skin off potato In a large blender (we recommend a vita mix!): combine all ingredients including the sweet potato. Blend for a few minutes until all ingredients are mixed well together. Move soup to a stove top pot and heat for about 10 minutes or until desired temperature Serve with dollop of yogurt or creme fraiche and cilantro! Freezes very nicely

Chiropractic Weekly Health Alert: New Way to Lose Weight

Here is our Walnut Creek Chiropractic Weekly Health Alert:

For a number of years, scientists have been studying “brown fat”.  Brown fat is a heat-generating fat that burns energy instead of storing it. Human newborns have a supply of brown fat to keep warm, but by adulthood they lose most of their stores of it.

In a new study, scientists found that they were able to activate the brown fat still present in adult men by exposing them to cold temperatures. The men burned more calories and lost white fat, the kind that causes obesity.

Time Magazine reports:

“Knowing that chilling the body triggers brown fat to mobilize could lead to an entirely new strategy for weight loss, the researchers suggested. Treatments could focus on activating brown fat without having to keep people in the cold.”

Chiropractic Weekly Sticky: Feeling a Bit Out of Tune?

You can’t sleep, your energy levels are low and you’re finding it harder to make it through your day. The specialists insist there’s nothing wrong, but you innately feel like something’s out of tune. Maybe it’s time to call Walnut Creek Chiropractor.

D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, recognized that repetitive physical, chemical and emotional stress can alter the normal ‘tone’ within a person’s Nerve System (a.k.a. Subluxation). This persistent irritation can lead to poor physical, mental and emotional performance. The solution? Restore normal tone to the Nerve System with specific, Chiropractic adjustments and better health will naturally follow!

Health is the ‘music’ that plays when all your cells, tissues and organs vibrate perfectly in unison – orchestrated by a finely tuned Nerve System. If you’re feeling sluggish, weak and tired, a trip to the Chiropractor may just be the thing YOU need to get back in key.
