Hearty Vegetable Soup to Fight the Winter Blues
Editor’s note: Many of us overindulge when we’re stressed, angry, or tired. What if, instead of wolfing down fatty comfort foods, we soothed ourselves with soul-nurturing whole foods. Michele from Cooking with Michele does just that with this hearty winter vegetable soup, which is full of good-for-you ingredients like barley, beans, and kale. --Jane
Now I’m not one to promote dieting, fasting, cleansing, or anything else like that. It feels too restrictive to me and I usually just fall off that wagon big time. Instead, I like to just attempt to return to eating healthier, but very satisfying, food. Lots of vegetables. Lower in fat. Whole grains. Vegetable sources of protein. You get the picture, right?
