So I have a secret… and it totally affects The Tasty Fork. This might be hard to take but I’ve cut carbs and sugar out of my diet…. In my mind, I can see mouths dropping. Trust me, it hasn’t been easy… but I enjoy a challenge. Being creative with food is something I LOVE…. and the carbs won’t be gone forever. I’ll be adding healthy carbohydrates back into my life soon, like 11 days. Can you tell I’m counting down??

As for sugar, moderation is key. I’ve never fancied myself as a dessert blogger. But with the holidays coming up, I will post dessert recipes. I’m going to try to make them as healthy as I can….but if they aren’t, oh well. I’ll just make it up at the gym. :)

My clean eating menu plan started after feeling sluggish and clothes not fitting right. I’m a short girl, so any kind of weight gain, even 5 lbs, shows on me. So instead of being unhappy with my jeans feeling like their painted on, I’m taking control and making changes with what I eat. I’m totally committed! And I’m glad I’m starting now. With Thanksgiving around the corner, then Christmas and then New Years – there are just too many opportunities to pack on a few more pounds.

One thing I won’t eat is boring food. This clean eating soup is ANYTHING but boring…. and it’s super easy! All you do is roast cherry tomatoes, eggplant, garlic and ginger in the oven for 20 minutes. Put all of the oven goodness in a blender with some stock, blend until smooth. That’s it. You’re done. I think this soup is really tasty! It tastes better than any kind of soup you can get from a can. Oven Roasted Tomato & Eggplant Soup is perfect for adults and kids. Make it for dinner any night of the week. This clean eating recipe is just too easy to pass up!

    […] I’ve been on a soup kick lately! I guess when you’re making an effort to eat clean, it’s pretty easy to make a soup. Cook veggies, puree and eat. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Plus, this recipe is made in the slow cooker. Which is great when I’m busy and working all day. […]

    This soup looks delicious–do you heat the broth before blending it with the vegetables, or do you just heat up everything post-blending?

    • Meghan Early Swint says

      Alanna, since the veggies are coming out of the oven, the stock doesn’t need to be warmed up. The hot veggies will be warm enough.

    I’m a shorty too, so I know exactly what you mean about just a few pounds showing and being uncomfortable. I found myself 10 lbs over my ideal weight over the summer and I had to take stock of the situation. Meals like this soup are right up my alley! And I love how quick and easy it is to make. Perfect recipe! Good luck with your fitness goals!

    • Meghan Early Swint says

      Good to know I’m not alone, Allie! Being a food blogger is tough on the waist line :)

    Girl you have some other kind of will power! This soup is gorgeous. I love eggplant and a big bowl of this would keep me so happy, even without carbs. Nicely done!

      LOL, thanks Erin!! It’s all about the end goal. So everytime I want to cheat, I just remember this no carb thing is temporary! I have 1.5 weeks to go!!

  9. Julie @ This Gal Cooks says

    Good for you for cutting back on carbs! I have done this a few times. It is hard to do but you lose weight fast! Just be careful if you have a beer or a glass of wine while on low carb…you will get really buzzed really fast! Looking forward to some of your healthier dessert recipes.

    This soup looks great! Pinned. Hope you have a wonderful day, Meghan!

      Julie, I haven’t had a drink almost two weeks!! I’m trying to hold out until we have our fantasy football rivalry week party, which is Nov 10th. I’ll be sure to take it easy! :)

    Love is new healthy/clean eating plan, way to take charge of your health! I love desserts too but everyone is always posting dessert recipes, good for “business” I guess? Love this healthy eating, especially with the holidays coming so soon.
    I don’t cook with eggplant very much and love the idea of it pureed in a soup!
