Chicken Soup with Kale

Monica Smith


So this morning I was to wake up and participate in a 5K fundraiser for a friend's charity when the Universe stepped in with a different plan. I woke with a head and chest cold, a day of rest was determined. Chicken Soup seemed to be the call of the day.

Now what to put in my soup, well Kale seems to be the veggie of the 2012. Everywhere I look the merits of Kale are being touted, juicing seems to be the biggest buzz word, however, I like to eat my food not simply drink it mashed up. So to keep my soup in the low carb category I opted to add Kale instead of rice or noodles.
