Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup | TheSubtleStatement.com #vegan #glutenfree

It’s been feeling like Fall as of late (and I love it!) I had a serious craving for tortilla soup yesterday and I found this amazing recipe. Using fresh veggies from a local farm, this soup was so delicious! It’sย vegan and gluten free, but you can easily add shredded chicken to it for a chicken tortilla soup.ย I added gluten free, GMO-free tortilla strips, instead of making my own.ย Such a great dish for a Summer transition into Fall.

The temps rapidly declined this weekend, and staying inside with a warm cup of homemade tomato soup sounded like the perfect Sunday. This recipe was the ideal fix, not only did it taste amazing, but I whipped it up in just 15 minutes.

Snow Day

Snow Day

Growing up, the best thing about Winter in Pennsylvania was the Snow Days. Sled riding and hot chocolate made up the perfect Winter day. Today marks off the first of ‘snowed in’ Winter days this year. Traveling may not be an option, so here’s a few ideas make the most of being snowed in.

Snow Day -- Chick Flick Marathon

Host a chick flick marathon. Make use of your Netflix subscription, whether it’s classic girly faves or a Ryan Gossling vs. Channing Tatum face-off, it’ll be sure to keep you entertained.

Snow Day -- Do a Face Mask

Get a Winter glow. Face masks are a fixture in my beauty routine. There’s just something therapeutic about them, that I love. Polished supple skin is only a face mask away. If you don’t have a mask on hand, whip up one in the kitchen with one of these homemade recipes. My faves include Mario Basdecu ‘Super Collagen Mask’ & Cucumber Tonic Mask, Philosophy Oxygen Peel, and Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Mask.

Snow Day reading

Catch up on your reading. I subscribe to an absurd amount of magazines, so getting caught up is sometimes a weekend project. Get the latest on style, beauty news and bikini body moves.

Snow Day -- Glitter Fade Mani

Give yourself a mani. Take the time to master that mani you’ve been eyeing on Pinterest. I’ve been a huge fan of the glitter fade, and New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to sport it!

snow day baking -- vegan gluten-free brownies

Try a new recipe. I’ll admit, I’m a little Christmas cookie baked out, but now is the time for all of the those tdf recipes on my Pinterest board, or a warm Winter soup. (Vegan, gluten-free brownies pictured.)

snow day

Play in the snow.ย Skiing, tubing, or a snowball fight.

snow day -- hot chocolate bar

Create a hot chocolate bar to enjoy after. Add marshmallows, peppermint candies, chocolate, cookie sticks, etc.
