What have you been eating the most? Do you have a recipe to share?
We made an incredible Orzo soup yesterday that was delicious and super easy to make.
Tomato Orzo Soup
(Makes 4 Servings)
4 cups water
2 cups vegetable broth
1 fresh vine-ripened tomato, chopped (or one 15-oz can fire-roasted chopped tomatoes)
1 cup roasted tomato sauce, either fresh or store bought
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb orzo
1 tsp salt
salt and pepper (optional)
In a large soup pot, bring water and broth to a boil.
Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, olive oil, orzo, and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir to combine.
Reduce heat to low and bring pot to a simmer. Cook until you see very small bubbles and broth is thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally so orzo doesn't stick to bottom of pan.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
...and we recently discovered Pinkberry here on Uber Eats
How are you moving your body/exercising?
One very long walk a day does the trick.
