I have worked on my website design and change a little bit. What do you guys think about my new design?
I'm home by myself while Jakob is working on Fitzroy Island, he will be back tomorrow.
He is working as a chef on a restaurant at the resort on the Island, and he finish work after the last ferry is leaving, so he get to stay at a 5 star hotel for free when he is working out there.,
I have worked today too and was suppose to train but i'm not feeling 100% , i think i'm about to catch a cold so i will take it easy today and have an early night and hopefully i will feel better tomorrow.
I got a bag of tomato's from Ina, the girl I'm working together with,
So I worked on my cooking skills today and made an healthy Vegan friendly Tomato soup with Sweet potato, pumpkins and purple carrots. It turned out really good.
I was googling around on recipe first but couldn't find anything healthy. I didn't want to add tomato puree or anything from a cane. I just wanted fresh ingredients in it and healthy as possible!
I love sweet potatoes, pumping and purple carrots.
Purple Carrot is very healthy for us. The Purpletts have great benefit of being a great source of antioxidants with naturally, occurring anthocyanins. The Purpletts have 28 times more anthockyanins than orange carrots. They also have naturally occurring anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties and best of all, They taste so good!
