Hope you are having a great day! I want to share one of my favorite, simple soups to make and it’s perfect for busy times, and also great for preventing or getting over a cold. I love to make a big batch of this when I know I’ll be in one place for a week to keep myself healthy and feeling energetic and awesome. It’s also perfect for getting in all your veggies, especially if you are in need of some resetting from the inside out.
This soup is super flavorful, really healthy, and filling enough that you won’t be craving much else besides maybe a cup of tea or big tall glass of water if you are really into “resetting”, or with some simple quinoa and steamed spinach if you are in need of a more robust meal. Make sure to follow your intuition when it comes to how you feel when you are preparing your meals and of course enjoying them!
One of the great things about this soup is you can really use any veggies that you love, and it’s a great way to use up left over veggies in the house.
