I love to make a big batch of this chicken and vegetable soup to use as a mini-detox after a few days of unusual indulgence. Like maybe after vacation or a holiday weekend.
This isn’t really a weight loss thing, although my weight usually does come back into balance. It is more of a great way to re-set my body and mind and get back into alignment with my soul.
It is like re-booting myself to get the data in my cells, mind and soul back to the right pattern or sequence, so I can easily remember what I truly want for myself. Otherwise, it might be cloudy and hard for me to focus on.
The wholesome nourishment of this chicken soup is filling and satisfying with a touch of sweetness from the corn and onion.
I’ve been known to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner some days. If I am using it as a mini-detox, most days I will eat it for breakfast and dinner with maybe a salad with lean protein and my favorite homemade balsamic salad dressing for lunch.
This soup is so easy to make and bursting with vegetables and lean protein. If I am feeding my family, I may make a pot of egg noodles that they can add to the soup or some healthier grain bread.

I like the packaged rotisserie chicken breast from Costco in the deli section.
I buy peeled garlic cloves in refrigerated section then chop in mini food processor and freeze in snack bags.
