Mung Beans and Sweet Potato Soup




Hello dears, how was your Valentine day? Hope you had a romantic day yesterday. I had a nice day with my family and today is my birthday:) already got a beautiful card from my hubby and a fab present of body lotion, soaps and treats that I love and a flash drive that I've asked, cause I really need one to keep all the pictures on my computer.

Well, remember that I want to eat better, so here I'm keeping up with a healthier diet and continued to cook things that I've never tried before. This time I tried Mung beans, which I've heard on the beneficial of it, but never tried before. I must admit that I absolutely fell in love with these yummy and easy cooking beans!
Well I had sweet potatoes and now wanted to have a soup with the mung beans and sweet potatoes looked out on the net and found Aylin's amazing blog: Glow Kitchen  she offers lots of healthy dishes with nutritional benefits. So I tried her Mung soup and it was delicious! Of course I made a few things of my own, like using 2 tsp of coconut oil to sauté the vegetables and added 2 celery sticks that is it.
Her recipes are easy to follow!

For the main course I've filled Chard with rice, carrots, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic and raisins and baked in the oven. Filled chards were served with whole rice noodles with vegetables cooked in coconut water.

Nutrition on my Mind

Hello guys, I'm so happy that weekend is just across the corner!  Though I'm sick again,  I hope next week will start with some new energies.  Meanwhile I'm starting to pay attention on my nutrition, more vegetables and whole wheat products.  Also am trying to reduce from 3 cups of coffee to only 1, which is very difficult for me, as I'm addicted to this gorgeous energy drink.
Well for today's lunch I made whole rice noodles with vegetables in coconut water and chicken breast covered in crumbs on top it turned out delicious!
