What better way to celebrate the arrival of fall than with a delicious bowl of soup! This Hearty Chinese Egg Drop Soup called my name weeks ago while scrolling through Pinterest, and I could not wait to give it a try. It looked easy enough; a limited number of ingredients, quick cooking time, and the added benefit of the Paleo label (although I ended up making a swap that disqualified this category). If you are like me, Chinese cuisine seems intimidating, but keep reading and I promise to change your mind.
Christina and I first met a few years ago working for the same company. Since then, she has gotten married, created her blog, Run Life Eat Repeat, and started down a path of finding her best health. I have followed her journey (and delicious recipes) for the past few months, and am always inspired by her determination to find sanity and sustainability in her health goals. As her story aligns so well with my own philosophies on fitness, and food, I asked her if she would be willing to share her experiences...
Let's start with the basic question, what is Rosh Hashanah?
Rosh Hashanah celebrates the Jewish New Year. I could easily devote multiple posts to the holiday explaining the multitude of religious and cultural traditions. My family and I typically mark the occasion by attending services, but most importantly, by gathering around a table for a delicious meal. For the second year in a row, David and I hosted the first of two holiday dinners, which included both family and friends. Instead of sharing just one recipe, I want to share my thoughts on the meal as a whole, how each course worked together, and suggest which recipes are best for your next gathering.
