wow, i don’t think i can thank all of you enough for your amazing comments yesterday and outpouring of support on my “standing up to bullying” post. i hope it was able to inspire you to take action wherever you may be as well.
moving on, though, today i wanted to share with you a yummy recipe pat and i conjured up to be trainer-approved during our january “shred” eating plan. no, i’m not trying to necessarily lose weight, but i am trying to get back to where i started before eating/drinking everything in sight over the holidays. so today’s recipe is for chicken soup with tons of protein and flavor but without chicken broth or boullion cubes, giving it a major overhaul in the calorie zone. i LOVE hearty soups, especially in winter, and this one is delish (if i do say so myself). you don’t even miss the noodles!
here you go!
jacin’s chicken soup
5-6 cloves garlic, minced
1 ½ yellow onions, chopped
1 bunch celery (6-8 stalks) chopped
5-6 carrots, peeled and chopped
6-8 chicken breasts, chopped in to bite size pieces
Optional: 2 red bell peppers, chopped
½ tbsp olive oil
Cook chicken through and put all ingredients in a crock pot and let it do the work for you all day.
