MaryPat is at it again! MaryPat is a member of the 17 Day Diet community and she posts the most gorgeous photos of her meals. Her latest creation is a perfect soup for the 17 Day Diet called MaryPat’s Creamy Apple, Carrot & Cauliflower Soup.
In case you didn’t see her last soup recipe, check out her Turkey Cilantro Enchilada Soup.
Here’s MaryPat’s latest creation — a creamy soup made from apples, carrots, cauliflower and a few spices.
Once you get to the point that all ingredients are cooked and you blend everything together, what results is a very creamy soup!
This soup may be served hot or cold (MaryPat gives her thumbs up especially on the cold version) and is approved for all cycles.
If you’re planning on eating this for a meal, you may want to consider eating for lunch as it does have some fruit in it.
