What’s up doc?

Today was my first day back of work. It was busy and challenging, however totally manageable. I something found myself feeling full energy, in a way I have not felt for a very very long time. It is almost as if somebody has hit a ‘reset’ button for me and I have had a complete fresh start. I think all that rest I had while on sick leave was good for me. I did however feel a little like a wound down Duracell bunny by the time I left the building after six o’clock. Even then though, I still did not have that crushed, wrung out rag feeling that I normally have. I am guessing this feeling will not last…

By the time I got home, I did not feel like eating or making a big dinner so I thought that I would make some soup. I decided that I would just make up a recipe. So I threw five carrots, two onions, a stick of ginger and an organic vegetable stock cube into my NutriBullet. I topped it up with 500ml of cold water and blitzed the whole thing for one minute. I then poured the mixture into a pan and allowed to boil and then simmer, adding some nutmeg, turmeric, a spoonful of olive oil, salt and pepper. The whole thing turned out to be a spicy  little dish. I cannot quite describe the taste, I think the ginger and nutmeg combined with the carrots provided a taste that I have no words for or experience of. I also note that it did not have the garlic undertones that I am normally used to. I have saved a little for my packed lunch tomorrow so I am sure I will decipher the taste. The most important thing was that it was warm, filling and comforting, perfect for an early autumnal evening.
