Newborn Thrift Haul!

Back with another haul! But this time is thrifted, and for my baby!

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!

Not going to lie.. this box is back from December but I never got to it with being madly sick with my first trimester of pregnancy and moving house. Which was an exhausting combo. But now I am feeling like myself again and ready to continue on with my blogging journey! This is such a special box I had to wait until I was fully ready to create some beautiful photo’s to share with you how beautiful this subscription box truly is. So let’s continue, shall we? And see what kind of nourishing, spiritual items I received..
If you know me in person, you’ll know that I am definitely a skincare enthusiast. I went to school for Esthetics and worked in the spa industry for 5 years. I truly truly love skincare and the ritual that comes along with it. That being said, I was very pleased to find this rose quartz facial roller in this box! First off I LOVE rose quartz ❤ and secondly this is amazing to add into your skincare ritual.
Who doesn’t love a tasty little treat when opening a subscription box? This adorable chocolate bar is by FINE & RAW chocolate, they are based out of Brooklyn and is plant based / vegan. Which I believe we can also all get down with, guilt free chocolate anyone? You can check out FINE & RAW on their website or instagram below.
