New year, new you! For those of you who kind of fell off the wagon over the festive period, now is the time to get back to your clean-eating divine selves! Christmas can be a difficult time to stay on the healthy train, especially if you are eating out a lot or staying at other people's houses etc, you don't want to be a burden or appear as though you are the health police, so standards can kinda slip, know what I mean?! Anyway, forget about Christmas, this is January (or Veganuary for those who are giving veganism a shot for the month -go team, go!!!) This soup will help you out no end, it's easy to make, low in fat and has the creamy decadent taste of something that is laden with double cream (so those of you doing Veganuary should love it!!)
Olives. I love them. Always have. I know there are many people out there who shudder at the mere thought of them. My boyfriend was one of those people when we first met, he had an almost passionate hatred towards them, but tastes change you know!! Now he is his happiest when piling olives into his mouth. He even hi-fived his best mate about Kalamata olives on a drunken night out. Now the implications are deeper with this, as it means he is now so passionate about olives that he drunkenly and excitedly talks about them on a night out. Ridiculous? Probably. A drunken buffoon? Maybe. A passionate olive zealot? Most definitely!! See? Tastes do change!
