Welcome to Meal Prep Sunday, where you'll make a single, healthy recipe with serious bodily benefits, whether it makes your skin glow, helps soothe your gut, boosts your immunity, or more! Because it gets boring to eat the same thing every day, you'll do the bulk of the prep on the first day—and every day after that, there will be one small, five-minute-or-less tweak that will transform the leftovers into a new, amazing meal. Today, we're sharing a recipe from Summer Rayne Oakes, author of the new book Sugar Detox Me: 100+ Recipes to Curb Cravings and Take Back Your Health. In the book, Summer outlines delicious and satisfying menu plans to keep you well-fed and sugar-free. We'll let her take it from here.

The soup brings together the savory flavor of the mushrooms and the sweetness of cooked carrots and onions.
