Hi y’all from the Hungry Southern Belle house! I am SO excited to be back on track with being back at the barre3 Atlanta South Buckhead studio  and off my medical “bench” just in time for the barre3 7 Day Body Blast Challenge.  For those of you who haven’t done a 7 day challenge before, it’s a great way to reset your eating and working out habits and for this Hungry Southern Belle, a great reason to test out new soup recipes!!!  You’ll LOVE this recipe for a deliciously creamy East Indies Green Soup!  Not only is this low FODMAP recipe beautiful in it’s green and red colors, it’s a delightfully fragrant soup that would pair nicely with a crusty bread or fresh spring salad.  This would also be great served chilled during the summer with crumbled goat cheese on top.  This will definitely be a repeat in our recipe box!  Enjoy y’all!
