SNFC Healthy Eating Recipes: This week's healthy eating recipe from the Sacramento Natural Food Co-Op is for Thai Style Winter Squash Soup. Let me tell you a little bit about this soup: squash, red curry, coconut, ginger, garlic, creamy, dreamy, healthy, lick-your-bowl delicious. I think that describes it pretty well! It’s easy to make, packed with nutrition and full of rich flavors!
Brooks "Run Happy" Tip: Treat yourself to a great pair of socks. Not only can this feel amazing on your feet, it can also help prevent blisters from forming.
