Setting healthy boundaries also means taking care of yourself. This also includes taking time off, making time for the things you enjoy. Things that restore your soul.
Luckily, God has set an entire day aside just for us. A whole day with lots of time to spend with Him, refresh our spirits in His presence, relax and restore. Restoration looks different for everyone; it’s just important that you find something that gives you energy, joy, and peace.
One thing that restores me is cooking. During the week it’s mostly just quick and simple, but on Sabbath I actually take time to find a cool recipe (or tweek with an old one), invest time in the kitchen, and have people around me to enjoy it with. So the Sundays of October will be filled with recipes – and if you enjoy cooking, too you might want to cook along! And if not, just give it a try, you might actually like it!

Carrott Coconut Ginger Soup
It’s October, so the days are shorter and the evenings become longer. This means it’s time to bring out the socks and the candles…and new soup recipes. Nothing can battle a rainy Sunday evening like a bowl of soup and a good movie. 🙂

Ingredients for four people:IMG_6516
1kg carrotts
150 ml coconut milk
500 ml chicken or vegetable stock
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1 piece of ginger
olive oil

Cut the onion, the garlic and the ginger into small pieces pieces. Frie them in a bit of olive oil.
Peel the carrotts, cut them into slices, and add them to the pot.
Add the chicken or vegetable stock and let it simmer until the carrotts are soft.

Take the pot off the stove and blend the soup with a hand blender until it’s creamy.
Add salt if you like.
