Pumpkin Soup

Paleo and free of gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, soy and refined sugar

Work lunch inspo… people often get stuck with what to pack for a healthy lunch.  It’s easy to prep healthy breakfasts and dinners when you have everything on hand at home but lunch is the meal that trips up so many of us.  Tip: keep half in the freezer to whip out anytime for a quick and nourishing lunch.


  • 1kg butternut pumpkin, chopped and peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder (add more if you like it hot)
