I made this recipe for a sponsored instagram post a few months back, but I thought it needed a forever home on the blog since it’s so damn delicious. It’s made with a completely grain-free pasta made from cassava, but you could use any pasta you prefer! – lentil pasta, sweet potato pasta, brown rice pasta. I really don’t care what you do, it’s your meal! But this cassava pasta is my favorite because it holds up really well over time so it’s great for leftovers! When I first made this pasta, we ate it for days and it just got better with time. So what I recommend is that you make this soup, you eat it for the next few days, and you enjoy your week? Ok? Is that too much to ask?

After being in Cabo for a week, it feels good to be back home and soup sounds absolutely lovely. Thankfully we didn’t come home to super cold weather, but 45 degrees is cold enough. I love living in Colorado, but I’m wondering if living in paradise is a better option. My skin feels better and more hydrated, mornings are easier, and never having to wear a beanie and down jacket is a wonderful thing. Thinking about how much money I would save if I only had to purchase tank tops and shorts instead of down jackets and winter boots is mind-boggling. But where should we move? Definitely not going to Florida and California doesn’t sound very fun these days with the full lockdowns going on over there. I’ve heard people who live in Hawaii hate when others move there so it’s challenging to make friends. Sooooo, should we move to another country? This is all hypothetical and will probably never happen, but I like daydreaming about never wearing boots ever again.

Now while I daydream about our next move, I need to get my ass moving because today I start filming the new videos for Power Sculpt Beyond! I just launched Power Program 2.0 on December 31st, which is the second chapter to my first Power Program, so now I’m working on the next chapter of my Power Sculpt Program! As soon as I’m done with one project, it’s on to the next! Power Sculpt Beyond will be the next 6 months of my Power Sculpt Program which means things are getting more challenging, movements are getting more complex, and I am challenging my athletes to push themselves in new ways. It’s going to be AWEOME! And since new movements are coming in Power Sculpt Beyond, I have LOTS of videos to shoot. Each video is a full breakdown of the movement, how to properly perform it, and what the movement should NOT look like, to ensure each person in the program gets the most out of every workout. This also means hours and hours and hours of filming. So why do I continue to type? Not sure. I better get my ass moving. Now go enjoy some soup!

    Hi Juli,
    thanks for this recipe! I have a question about the Bean Protocol (hope it’s okay to ask here): I’ve been trying it out since Jan 1…in the past few days I’ve noticed cramp-like feelings, although my period is nowhere close. Did you experience this? Does it go away? Is it a good sign?

  2. Christie says:

    Hey Juli, just a quick question. I want to buy the pasta and I’m curious if it’s like chick pea pasta or what you would compare it to?
    Thank you so much for the recipe. I really appreciate it.

  3. Laura says:

    Made this last night – it was so good! Even my toddler loved it.

  4. Colleen says:

    I gave this recipe to my mom because she had some Italian Sausages she have no idea what to do with. She didn’t have fresh spinach so she subbed it with Broccoli. My dad and her LOVED it.

    It’s February in Alaska and I’m over it! For a beach, I’d live in Croatia or the French Riviera – Nice area (and both have amazing food!). Thanks for the recipe, I’m going to try it with some lentil pasta since I doubt I can find cassava or other cool pasta up here!

    This soup is fantastic! Thank you for sharing.

  7. Shannon April says:

    I totally want to make this – it looks amazing. My fam loves this soup but I forget to make it for them. Thanks for the inspiration!
