Why we love Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe with Cinnamon Crema is taking me back to my amazing days in Puebla, Mexico. I had some of the best soups ever while I lived in Mexico.

I’ll give you all a little Mexican culture fun fact today… they literally call soups like this “Crema” (cream) this soup would be called, “Crema de Calabaza”. They call any other soup that is not “crema” (like this), “sopa” which directly translates to soup. 

Now, you know!

Nichole with Fit Friday! 

October is here, and it totally snuck  up on me. You would think all of my Halloween excited neighbors getting pumpkins out weeks ago would have better prepped me, but no I am still shocked to be looking at my October calendar. Maybe the problem is I didn’t have a October marathon on my calendar like the vast majority of my friends, but I learned a few years ago that fall races were not for me. 

With October being sneaky like my speedy friends I am choosing to do a treadmill workout for our Fit Friday this week. In fact, we will be doing all sorts of runner things this month. Yay! Don’t worry, if you aren’t a runner these workouts will still benefit you and you are still absolutely capable of doing them. 

Today we are simply sticking with running, later this month we will include some strength training and stretches for runners.
