Paleo Cream of Broccoli Soup

Whale, I just got back from a lovely weekend trip to Banff with friends for a little birthday celebration and snowboarding. I loved seeing a big red looking full moon on the way back home. There’s something so exciting about full moons to me. If I had a tail, it would be wagging all night tonight while I stared out the window.

This week is a high potassium week because I tend to beat the shit out of myself during the winter. Between winter sports and yoga and soon-to-be rock climbing, I’ll need all the muscle recovery. Seeing as bananas don’t jive well with my skin, I stocked up on broccoli, potatoes, mushrooms and spinach to incorporate into my lunches this week.

Also, this soup is amazing because everything I make is amazing so you should make it.
