Chicken, Kale, Bean Minestrone Soup

So let me just say before you scroll to the recipe, this is not a classic minestrone soup and does not contain any noodles! but you can obviously always add them in at the end if thats what you’re after 😉

Chicken Broth:

  • 1 pot of water
  • 1 chicken carcass
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 5 sage leaves
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • salt
  • pepper
  • tumeric

Soup Ingredients:

  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 2 -3 cups of Chicken or Sausage
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 2 -3 hand fulls of kale
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 can of black beans or kidney beans
  • more salt! jk, taste it first

I just throw every thing in together once the broth is done (i usually boil for a couple of hours) strain the content out of the broth. Add your soup ingredients to the broth and then once the carrots are tender to your liking I turn off the heat. Happy souping!

Mama Natural

If you’re in search of a week by week guide for pregnancy and childbirth, I would highly recommend this book by Mama Natural / Genevieve Howland. I have found this book to be super helpful & insightful along with her witty sense of humor has made this a fun read as well and informative.

A good friend of mine recommended this book for me as well as went ahead and purchased it as a maternity present for me which I am super thankful for and feel spoiled ❤

That being said, this would make a fabulous pregnancy gift for any expecting mama’s out there!
(this is not sponsored in anyway) but it just so happens that the book is actually on sale right now on amazon:

Stuart’s Quality Baked Goods

Whilst down in Granville Islands at the Market, as there are way too many things to choose from which becomes very overwhelming, we decided to pick up a couple tarts before heading back to our hotel.

I didn’t try the key lime tart because I am not much of a sweet tooth myself, however I did try the blueberry tart and it wasn’t overly sweet and had a really nice texture to it. I think the presentation of the tart’s honestly speak for themselves! Delicious.
