Early Spring or Late Winter?

by Meg on March 21, 2011

Can you believe it- it snowed in Boston today!

To stay warm I made a kale soup!

In my soup pot today:

  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 cup of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can of drained, rinsed chickpeas
  • 1 large bunch of kale
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 vegetable bouillon 
  • 1 medium size sweet potato, peeled and diced

I sautéed the onion in olive oil for a 3 minutes and then added the rest of the ingredients. Then, brought the soup to a boil and let it simmer for 20 minutes. It is amazingly easy to make, delicious and nutritious.  Makes 2 quarts.

In my lunch sack today:




For dinner tonight, I soaked and cooked up  Bob’s 13 beans and added tomatoes, onions, 1/2 poblano pepper, cilantro, sweet potatoes, red peppers, chili powder, cumin, agave nectar, and crazy Jane salt mix. Set the crockpot on low and let it sit ALL day(literally 8 hours).

It was beany delicious!


My workout today: 25 minutes on the elliptical! I still wasn’t feeling 100%. Tomorrow though- I’m going to Interval Challenge!

Mmm, I love anything with chickpeas and will have to give that kale soup a try. I had homemade tortilla soup yesterday – really hit the spot with that wacky snow!
