A super healthy, low cal, ‪#‎glutenfree‬, ‪#‎dairyfree‬ soup that has wonderful flavor and will soothe the soul on a cold winter day. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! http://bit.ly/1dikLPg

This weather just won’t quit. It was 75 degrees this weekend and it’s been in the 30’s since the beginning of the week. This is definitely the coldest winter I have experienced in my 9 years in Austin! I grew up in Denver and the midwest so I know I am spoiled here in Texas but I’m so over the cold. I think everyone is!

January was a pretty tough month for me. I’ve noticed certain things in my life that I’m just “putting up” with because it’s easier than addressing the real issue. And you know what happens when you do that? Stress eating. I’ve noticed any time in my life that I’ve turned to stress eating it’s because I am trying to numb out from something in my life that isn’t serving me. I’ve done this with work, relationships, you name it. When you address what’s not working in your life head on, you no longer need to numb out on food. Instead of trying to suppress that energy, you can use it to take action toward your passions. So get off the couch or away from your computer and start making that healthy meal, clean your house, go through your finances, work on your passions, write that novel, compose music, and put your energy into something that serves you. Taking action will bring you closer to what you were put on this earth to do and you won’t feel the need to numb out. It goes for any “addiction” not just food. That’s because it’s not about food, it’s usually about procrastination. Procrastination is FEAR. Fear is stifling, fear makes you shrink. You have to stand up and have the courage to face your fears and take action towards the life you want to live!! It can be as simple as committing to cooking yourself a nice healthy meal. I promise you will feel SO MUCH better for it!

With this cold icy weather we’ve been having I didn’t feel like going to the grocery store so I took action and whipped up a veggie soup using whatever I had on hand. Feel free to modify this recipe according to what you have. It’s super simple and healthy, yet warm and comforting on these frigid days!

Easy Vegetable Soup

You’ll need:

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 head of celery, diced
  • 1 lb bag of carrots, peeled and chopped – I only had a bag of baby carrots so I just used those and chopped them
  • 6 red potatoes, cubed
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 head of kale, chopped – I used an entire bag of Trader Joes Organic pre-washed and chopped kale
  • 32 ounces veggie or chicken broth – I used my homemade bone broth, it’s magical, if you’re ok with it not being vegan!
  • 2 tsps garlic powder
  • sea salt and fresh cracked pepper

In a large pot, dutch oven or crock pot over med heat, add chicken broth, onion, celery, carrots and potatoes. Then add garlic powder, fresh cracked pepper, a generous amount of sea salt, and more water as needed to fill to the top of your pot. Cook for about 30mins then stir in your tomatoes and kale. Adjust sea salt and pepper as needed. Cook another 10mins and remove from heat. Serve with toasted Ezekiel bread (you’ll find it in the freezer section at your local health food store) and viola! A super healthy, low cal, gluten free, dairy free soup that has wonderful flavor and will soothe the soul on a cold winter day. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Remember to have fun making your own creation! You can use any veggies you like; broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, zucchini, summer squash, or cabbage would all be lovely in this soup!

“I am writing to let you know that I am seeing major progress.  Lots of people were commenting to me at the end of last week about my weight loss. And, maybe it’s partially mental, but I did wake up yesterday feeling lighter! While I believe I have lost a few pounds, I have definitely seen the results in inches lost.  I took my measurements on March 11th to see if I could use that as a indicator instead of the scale.  Well, yesterday, I took them again on a whim and guess what?  Amazing results seen from shoulders to toes!!!!  I have lost 1″ in my thighs, 1.5″ in my waist, and had .5-1″ losses in chest, calves, arms, and hips.  How amazing is that??  I wanted to say thank you for your help in teaching me food combining and how to eat so well.  Even with the occasional cheat meal and a beer or two, I am still seeing great things.  Thank you!!  Surprisingly, I find myself eating more veggies these days than not.  It makes me feel so much better!  I just had to share this with you.  Thanks again!!” – Amber in GA

    YUM! I’ve been making a lot of veggie soups here in North GA. too due to the cold weather. We’ve got 2 inches of snow right now and still falling. Glad you are aware now of the fears that were holding you back. No more! Love you and stay warm!

    Thank you for the recipe. But {possibly} MORE important, thank you for expressing in words how I feel. “Numbing” out on food is what I do, and right now I’m going through a time when all I want to do is this…and usually the numbing food is unhealthy food {of course}. I am currently working very hard to choose healthier foods and portions and just make wiser decisions. I really appreciate your insights and all of the wonderful recipes you share!!!

      Hi Allison,
      Thanks so much for your comment! I can 100% relate to what you’re saying. Try to stay conscious when you are feeling “bingy” and like overeating. You can go ahead and have something but make sure it is mineral dense, like this soup! Or try to use that anxious energy to do something productive: clean out your closet, vacuum, take a hot bath, write in a journal, go for a walk, call a friend, take care of something that you’ve been putting off for a long time…I hope that helps! Just being conscious of our patterns is a huge step in the right direction!! xo

    I still dont see how this is vegan with chicken broth as a base? mable a veggie stock sub?

    • Linda February 13, 2014 at 7:57 pm #

      Hi Tony, it lists veggie or chicken broth so it’s your choice!

  4. Terra February 13, 2014 at 12:27 pm #

    I’m not sure why you’ve titled this a vegan soup if it uses chicken broth and you even link to your homemade bone broth. Yes, it can easily be made vegan but it’s not vegan or even vegetarian as listed. It comes off as trying to take advantage of a current buzzword without having a firm grasp of what vegan truly means. That said, it does look like a clean, simple soup that I’m going to try with some substitutions.

    • Linda February 13, 2014 at 7:58 pm #

      Sorry Terra, this was posted before editing. It’s a veggie soup that can be made with veggie broth to make it vegan or bone broth if you’re into that. Either one is fine, it’s up to you 🙂 The good thing is that it’s super healthy and nutritious either way!

    That soup would hit the spot right now. If only I could get out of my house to get the ingredients! The streets are pure ice today. But tomorrow, soup’s on!

    Allison, you’re not alone. I get very “bingy” in the winter, too. And numb. It’s a struggle to keep myself moving and not grabbing everything in sight and shoving it in my mouth. My energy plummets so much! It goes from Tigger level energy to Eeyore. lol.

    But, Linda, you are so right. Doing something you’ve been putting off is so energizing! And journal-writing. Or in my case, blogging. I find that if I put on music, it helps to get me up and moving. I type “belly dance” into Pandora, and those tribal beats make me feel like Shakira while I’m loading the dish washer! And my husband swears Huey Lewis and the News are the greatest band on Earth! It’s so funny! But I have to say, it is hard to be bummed while listening to “Hip to Be Square.”

    Do you have albums or songs that you find energizing? I need some recommendations!

      Hi Mary, thanks for you comments and kind words!!
      I’ve been really into HAIM lately, it’s these two girls from Brooklyn and I have been really loving their style 🙂

      Hot baths with lavender and epsom salts are great too. If I’m feeling bingy and I decided to take a hot bath and watch a movie on my computer, I usually calm down, relax and don’t feel like munching! It’s all about addressing our real needs vs numbing out and not feeling our emotions. I’ve been uber sensitive to this lately! I need things that nourish my SOUL, not stuff my belly. That’s why I love your comment on journaling, so good for your soul 🙂

    Yes too much cold. I have tried many soups in this blood frizzing winter. But among those this is looking awesome. Thanks for this warm simple vegetable soup recipe which sounds good but I am in doubt whether it is vegan or not because you have used chicken broth here. However I love chicken but I was wondering why you called it a vegetable soup then.

      Hi Stacy, I personally used chicken broth but I said that if you would like to keep it vegan/vegetarian then you can use veggie broth!
