THE GREEN SOUP


You’ve been asking for it and I’m giving it to you! My “Green Soup”…an antioxidant, detoxifying, weight loss soup that’s good for your heart & soul… just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! This soup is packed full of iron, calcium, potassium, vitamin K, natural folate and other powerful phytonutrients. It’s high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. Broccoli has an anti-inflammatory, alkalizing effect on the body making it one of the healthiest cancer-fighting foods. This soup contains nutrients that may help reduce some types of cancer such as breast, colon and lung cancer. Green vegetables can also help with fluid retention (that stubborn tummy pouch) and may reduce blood pressure. The Green Soup is rich in antioxidents that fight free radicals that can cause a wide range of illnesses and chronic diseases. All of those benefits…PLUS it’s DAHLicious & addictive!

About me

Welcome Dahlings, I’m so happy you’ve taken the time to drop by my circus. I started this blog because I hope to inspire my fellow dahls with tips on how to be happy, healthy & fabulous! There will be fashion, beauty & travel tips from years in the entertainment industry. Everything from planning a party to trying to get pregnant…you’ll find it right here! We’ll talk about my “letter to God” to find my soul-mate, getting married in just 6 months, moving across the country from Nashville, Tennessee to Orange County, California and combining our country-coastal lifestyles together. I come from a big Italian family so there will be food & lots of it! I’ll share my Dahlicious recipes I learned how to make while being a contestant on MasterChef…and some family recipes that I will most likely be disowned for sharing ;) Please leave me any questions, comments or concerns…I really appreciate all your sweet support! I’m looking forward to getting to know all my dahls & making some new friends!
