Blue Hues, My Top 5 on IG

I love posting on Instagram and also viewing the lovely artistic photos that float around my feed, such amazing colors to see, such fantastic and talented people behind the photos.

If you don't know by now, I adore the color blue!  (Hence the "Indigo" in my blog name). Within the past few weeks my feed has also become a little happy place for me filled with pretty inspirational blues.. I just thought I had to share, hope you enjoy!



@NectarandStone Has become a fav Instagram of mine, she creates the most magical desserts anyone has every seen, a combination of all sorts of chic colors, not to mention her signature gold leafing.

This marble combo of grays, teals, whites are so sophisticated!


@ZincDoor's Post of this lovely royal blue door is just everything!  Such an amazing pop of color against the white walls..chic chic!


@badgalriri is working that deep blue dress made by the one and only Zac Posen...go on girl rock that dress!

I've been following @Lukeshadbolt and @Garypeppergirl because they continue to amaze me with deliciously vivid photos that just pop out of the screen. This teal water makes me want to dive right in.


@JossandMain just had to serve up this lovely Indigo velvety sofa on their site...so lux!


Slow Cooker Recipe: Lentil Soup

Because I will soon become a mother of 2 and because I already cook 3 different types of meals (that includes one for myself) for my family, I've decided that I need to find an easier, faster way to make healthy foods that I can divulge in without putting in the hard work.

Earlier this week, I decided I needed something healthy in my body after giving in to unhealthy pregnancy cravings all week.  Lentils were in the cupboard along with some handy ingredients to make this soup come to life.

As of right now, I am eternally grateful to whomever invented the "slow cooker".  This handy device saved me lots of time and effort and even made me look at peas in a different light.

Here's what I threw in the slow cooker:

p.s.  I did not measure any of the ingredients, so use your discretion when adding these ingredients


Lentils
Water
1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt
2 Sprigs of Rosemary
1/2 of Chopped Garlic
1 Cup of Chopped Mushrooms
1/2 Cup of Chopped Onions
A Sprinkle of Seasoning Salts or vegetable bouillion cube

You can also add: white or sweet potatoes for more of a hearty soup.


Enjoy!

Vegan Mushroom Soup with a twist

On Christmas day I decided that I must have portabello mushroom soup for lunch.  I had no clue how I wanted to make it but I knew it had to be creamy and very flavourful.

I must say it turned out even better than I expected, and my special ingredient that put it all together?  Ginger!


Add to the pot:

8 chopped Portobello Mushrooms
3 cups of Almond milk
2 tablespoons of vegan butter
1 teaspoon of Pink Himalayan sea salt
1 sprig of rosemary
1/2 teaspoon of thyme
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of cayene pepper
Freshly diced ginger
 
(For thickness you can add coconut or any other flour.)
 
Boil, Blend, Garnish and serve

 

Voila


Bon Appetit!
