With the weather getting colder and especially on rainy days like this, I started to crave soups. Today I tried the roasted tomato soup and I am in love.
Since I cannot make some croutons or garlic bread for my soup, I make this sort of potato breads. It’s just three ingredients – potatoes, rice flour and a bit of honey. I got them recipe online, it’s a vegan, gluten free take on the Irish potato bread because this is my life now.
I am also hitting one personal milestone this week. I will finally finish a whole workout program. I know it sounds stupid to some, but in my years of on and off working out I have never finished a workout program so this is really important for me. I am on day 47 and only three more days of workouts to go! The program I am on is Caroline Girvan’s Epic I program and it’s brutal for someone who has never done a lot of exercises with weights.
Before starting I got two pairs of dumbbells, one lighter and one heavier. I also have booty bands and my workout mat and that was all that is necessary and through this program I really learned a lot and discovered what my body is actually capable of. In the beginning I couldn’t do some exercises or I couldn’t keep up but after a few weeks I noticed a lot of change in my strength and abilities.
I am very proud of myself so I had to share. There’s also Epic II program and even Epic III, but I will not jump straight into Epic II. I am probably going home this weekend, so I will take the week I spend home to focus on some shorter workouts, stretching exercises and also to do my knee exercises because they are starting to act up again.
Also, next week I have my appointment with the ophthalmologist so I will probably get glasses soon. We’ll see!

That soup and the potato cakes sound amazing. Recipe?
I got everything online so here are the links. The soup https://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/homemade-roasted-tomato-basil-soup/
The bread https://www.unconventionalbaker.com/recipes/gluten-free-vegan-irish-potato-farls/
Regarding the Irish potato bread, I have to go with this vegan, gluten free option but there are other recipes that include milk, eggs etc., and I did try the bread with the original recipe before switching to a different diet and it’s yummy!
Awesome thank youA
Home sweet home 🥰 I too love soups! Enjoy settling in to your new space my friend!
