Spiced Eggplant Soup | Recipe

Eggplant soup. Now there’s something I never thought was an option, until I came across it online. I read about how someone had a delicious spiced eggplant soup and instantly decided this was something I wanted to make. When I did, I was very pleasantly surprised. This is good! The soup is filling, warming, but light at the same time. The North African spices make it taste really exotic and wonderful. Plus, it’s one of those amazing “throw it all in a pot and walk away” recipes that us busy people love. Do give this one a try if you’re looking to taste something new!

I like to always encourage people to enjoy the little things in life. The small, passing moments are what make up most of your life in the end, and I truly believe that appreciating them is the key to happiness.

Taking Charge Of Your Fertility | Must Read

Roughly three months ago I decided to go off hormonal contraception and I haven’t regretted it for one second. If you’d like to read more about my reasoning behind no longer using the NuvaRing and my experience, I suggest you check out my first two posts about it HERE and HERE. My cycle is slowly becoming more regular each month which I’m really happy about, but I’ll come back to you with more detailed updates about that when I hit the six-month artificial hormone free mark. Today I’d like to share something with you that got recommended to me a few times when I talked about contraception online: the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. This book was first published in the 1980’s and has been popular among women worldwide ever since. It’s received several revisions so it’s fully up to date, and the book and method even come with an app now. Taking Charge of Your Fertility deals with cycle tracking as a natural means of both birth control and pregnancy achievement, but mostly it just provides lots of information about the female reproductive system that every woman should know. If you ask me, this is an absolute must-read.
