Easy Butternut Squash Soup

I love butternut Squash soup

Butternut squash soup and a Buzzcut

For me soup is amazing, because it leaves me feeling light and healthy 🙂 I also love soup because in Calgary this week we had a number of days that were -19! It was freezing, I like to make big batches of soup so I can come home, warm it up and warm myself up. This week we are having butternut squash and apple soup 🙂 With the added health benefits of turmeric! Try it out and let me know what you think.
