Vegetable Soup

Vegetable Soup -- Unwed HousewifeYou’re going to love this soup. It’s healthy, vegetarian, and hearty! So many vegetables are in this: carrots, celery, cabbage, onion, peas and potatoes. This is the perfect soup for when you want something healthy that won’t leave you hungry. It’s a classic vegetable soup recipe every chef should have. It’s perfect for rainy days, sick days, or days when you’re craving something warm.

Last week I was sick and right before I got sick I remember thinking, “I need to take better care of myself.” I wasn’t eating right and exercising the way I should and sure enough, I got really sick! If I had been eating more stuff like this vegetable soup, maybe I wouldn’t have gotten so sick. Has that ever happened to you? There’s nothing like getting sick to make ya realize just how dang important good nutrition is.

Vegetable SoupA lot of vegetable soups are dull, but not this one! My absolute favorite thing about this soup is how hearty it is. I wanted to create a vegetable soup with a lot of hearty bites. There are so many vegetables in this that trust me, you won’t be scraping the bottom with a spoon looking for vegetables. There are colorful vegetables in each and every bite.
