Lemon Chicken Quinoa Vegetable Soup

Lemon Chicken Quinoa Vegetable Soup

My Lemon Chicken Quinoa Vegetable Soup is sure to warm you right up! Packed with chunks of chicken and lots of vegetables.

I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….I can’t get enough soup when it’s chilly outside.  I’m talking 75 degrees in AZ, ha!  I really enjoy soup all year round, but there’s something so comforting about enjoying a nice bowl in the winter months.

To simplify, I used the chunk canned chicken from Costco and some leftover quinoa I had in the refrigerator.  A rotisserie chicken would be great for this soup too.  It took no time at all to prepare.  Hearty and comforting, hope you enjoy this healthy new soup recipe!

I have so many fun memories of getting together for the Superbowl.  I have to admit, the highlight for me is having a fun assortment of party food.  I love the excitement of the game, but who am I kidding….I never know what’s going on.  Sad that I was a cheerleader in high school and never knew football rules, lol!  One of these days I’ll get my husband to fill me in!

My Healthier Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies make the perfect afternoon snack with less guilt than your typical cookie!

For the last couple weeks I’ve been perfecting this “healthier” chocolate chip cookie.  I’ve been looking for just the right texture but less of the “bad stuff” in everyday cookies that I love so much.

After tweaking my recipe a half dozen times I finally got it right!  Buttery crisp around the edges yet soft and fabulous in the center.
