Mexican Chicken Soup


This soup was SO easy yall!!!

Here's the rundown:

  • Heated broth to boiling in a pot.
  • Turned off heat. Threw in red bell peppers, tomatoes, onion, sweet potatoes, and chicken (all from Thrive Life).
  • Seasoned with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and cumin.
  • Stirred it all up and left I covered for 5 minutes.
  • Served over rice with some avocado! And a few plantain chips.

So easy!!! No Thrive Life?? Check it out here on my link. Or use some fresh vegetables and shredded chicken until you get your grocery box at your door 😉

Happy Tuesday!!!

What I ate Wednesday: Sept. 6th

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!

We had a good weekend. I enjoyed the extra day off and was able to get some "settling in" (AKA, STILL unpacking) checked off the list.

Short work weeks usually throw off my menu planning, BUT in a good way! I usually take them as a nice chance to relax a little and cook on the fly! Grace week as I like to call it!

Here is a peak at what I ate today.

Breakfast–> I LOVE Bobo's oatmeal bites (I get the lemon one at Publix, which has been on sale!). If I get up early, I usually have one with some coffee. Then when Tripp wakes up, we usually split a plate of eggs and fruit. And we had a Bfree bun in the fridge, so I toasted it and put some butter on it. Kind of like a bagel!

Lunch–> Tripp and I played almost all morning outside. It was beautiful!! We came in and I threw us together a little variety of a few of my picks and a few of his picks. Chicken with Primal Mayo, celery, carrots with hummus, apple, cheese, olives, asparagus for Tripp, and avocado.

Dinner–> We are having zoodles with roasted potatoes and chicken meatballs. Since this will be up BEFORE then, here was last night's dinner plate 😉

And here is a peak at some of what I have prepped for the week. Publix pre-cut veggies are amazing shortcuts. I got Brussel sprouts and rices cauliflower to help me out a little.

I also threw a whole chicken in the InstantPot… and you know it, made back to back broth batches to round out the process.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!
