Lunch.  What to have? I actually dragged myself to the gym today so I am trying for something healthy. One of my favorite lunches is soup. It’s healthy and satisfying and yummy. I have an abundance of cucumbers in the fridge and half an avocado.  So Cucumber Avocado Soup it is! Creamy, chilled, delicious and ready in minutes.
