Coriander Sweet Potato Soup with Toasted Cinnamon Pecans

I have a delicious holiday soup for you today: Coriander sweet potato soup with toasted cinnamon pecans. Yes, I’m starting to create and share some holiday recipes already. To be honest, Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year and I always start getting in the holiday spirit in the first few weeks of November.

And I don’t know about you guys, but I’m all about making my favorite treats a little healthier. That way, we can enjoy our favorite treats and feel good about it. There’s still place for real treats of course… It’s all about balance.   Are you as excited for the holidays as I am?! Now that my dietetic exam is done, I have more time to relax and enjoy the holidays. This is the…
