Hearty Chicken and Vegetable Soup

Does anyone else feel like life is moving in Fast Forward lately? These last few weeks before Christmas are always stressful! Sooo much to do and not enough hours in the day to get everything done. I actually just started my Christmas shopping TODAY, better late than never right?! Last year I was already done. I was due with Little Miss early December last year, and was determined to not have to worry about anything once she was born. This year with a now toddler running around and a 4 and 5 year old, I am not so organized! Thank you Amazon!

This year I am also trying to not go crazy with the gifts. Santa is on a budget and the kids do not have a whole lot of needs. They also don’t have a whole lot of wants on their lists this year, which makes things easier. I’m trying to be practical with the gift giving for everyone this year. I’m spending the time trying to find gifts everyone will actually use. Not just things to open and toss to the side. It’s hard! It is also so hard trying to raise appreciative kids in todays society, but we are trying over here!

Annnyyyways onto to real reason of this post! One thing we all don’t have time for this time of year is spending hours in the kitchen slaving over the stove. Meals need to be quick, satisfying, and healthy. I am also on a soup kick lately, so bear with me. I don’t know if its the colder weather or the lack of time, but there is just something so comforting about a big bowl of soup. And for me it’s easy to just throw a bunch of things in a big old pot and let them simmer away into something delicious. This recipe is super easy and soooo good!

After numerous Whole 30’s I know that when I am eating a Paleo diet I feel my best. So I am always looking for delicious, clean recipes that I will enjoy. But as a busy mom it is not always about me. I refuse to make separate meals for the kids, so dinner has to be something everyone will enjoy. This recipe is a crowd pleaser in our house and is a great way for me to get the kids to eat a whole bowl of veggies!

So in these stressful weeks to come add this into your meal rotation. At least one thing will be quick and stress free! I would love to hear how you like my recipes so please feel free to leave me a comment or shoot me an email!!
