Blogging from bed- still feeling a little under the weather, but still fighting it with everything I’ve got.
(gotta love the baby bangs- after my post-baby hair loss, it’s on it’s way back)
The only thing that really sounds good:
Soup… and coffee. Oh, and chocolate.
I have no idea why I don’t make soup more often (besides when it’s not 104* like it was today)- it really is an easy meal, one pot, and you can get in a ton of veggies and protein.
Don’t you just want to dive in?!
All I did was sauté an chopped onion, 2 ribs of chopped celery, 2 chopped zucchini and some garlic in a little olive oil:
Seasoned it with pepper, oregano, garlic powder and added a container of low-sodium chicken broth, a shredded rotisserie chicken, a few sprigs of rosemary
Let it simmer for an hour or so before adding a drained giant can of garbzano beans, scooped some out for Liv, and then added sundried tomatoes, handfuls of spinach and lots of salt.
I held my bowl in front of my face to let the steam hit- giving myself an Italian facial as Kyle calls it, and then devoured.
As much as I loved the soup, the person that went even crazier for it was Oliv. I pureed some of the unsalted soup for her (garbazno beans, chicken, broth, veggies) and she loved it. I couldn’t feed her fast enough! Looks like we have a little foodie on our hands.
Hope you’re having a great night and I’ll see ya on Tabata Thursday.
Guess what?! The August Workout Calendar is up! Check it out here. I’d love to hear your feedback and check-ins (the comment section, twitter or Instagram: @fitnessista) with me along the way. If it’s something you like, I’ll continue it in the monthly rotation <3
