Creamy Corn Soup, Oregano Oil, & Branching Out Of My Comfort Zone

Creamy Corn Soup, Oregano Oil, & Branching Out Of My Comfort Zone

When's the last time you stepped outside what was comfortable? How often do you push yourself? 

I made a realization recently that I live my life "safe". I almost never take risks, and in fact I strongly balk against new things. It creates a very comfortable but boring life. I feel unfulfilled as a result. So, I've decided to purposefully try new things and step outside my comfort zone with a positive mindset towards change. Who wants to make this resolution with me??

This soup recipe was a step outside my comfort zone. I was unsure it was going to turn out well because I was CONVINCED I was going to wreck it somehow. Because it was new. Also, I made this recipe later in the day, and the lighting for the pictures I took was much darker. So I was trying to photograph this food differently. New things everywhere!

But guess what? It worked. Beautifully. This soup is delicious! I should've known, because the recipe comes from With Food And Love. Sherrie creates food that blows my mind. Her photography is stunning. She shares food recipes that are naturally gluten free and largely plant based. That are really, really good. Please check out how talented this girl is!
