When you’re feeling a little under the weather or just looking for a comforting meal, there’s nothing better than this medicine ball chicken noodle soup. It’s filled with immune boosting ingredients to heal your body and soul. This is a great meal to bring to loved ones, family or friends who may be suffering from illness or hardship. Scroll down for my recipe.

Medicine Ball Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients:

  • olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 2 cups diced carrots
  • 3 stalks of celery, sliced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp ground tumeric
  • 8 cups chicken broth or bone broth ** see below (I like to do 4 cups chicken broth, 4 cups of bone broth)
  • 1 rotissterie chicken, meat removed and shredded.
  • fresh thyme (to taste)
  • salt/pepper (to taste)
  • 1 bag egg noodles

**This soup is filled with garlic, lemon and tumeric to cleanse the immune system. But if you really want to make this a wellness packed medicine ball chicken noodle soup, use bone broth. Bone broth is packed with vitamins and minerals, is great for the digestive system, and fights inflammation. Nowadays you can buy already made bone broth in the grocery store.

Directions:

1.) In a large sauce pan or dutch oven, drizzle some olive oil and heat on medium heat.

2.) Add the chopped onions and garlic and allow to saute until the onions are translucent.

3.) Add in the carrots, celery, salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, allowing to soften.

4.) Pour in the chicken or bone broth, lemon juice, tumeric and thyme. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes.

5.) When ready to serve, add the chicken and cooked egg noodles.

Serve with some crusty bread or crackers.

This soup stores great in an airtight container and keeps in the fridge for about 4-5 days. I like to have extra cooked egg noodles on hand and store in a ziploc bag then add to my soup before eating so they don’t get mushy.

Chocolate chip peanut butter bars

chocolate chip peanut butter bars

This past week that I’ve been home I’ve found myself baking ALOT, anyone else? (STRESSED spelled backwards is DESSERTS am I right?) Yesterday I was craving something sweet and gooey to comfort my soul. I can’t think of anything that’s more comforting than peanut butter and chocolate so I got to work. These chocolate chip peanut butter bars quickly became a family favorite in our house and you most likely have all of the ingredients on hand.

Chocolate chip peanut butter bars

Ingredients :

  • 2 sticks of salted butter
  • 2/3 cups of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsps of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 3 cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease your baking dish (I used a 9×9).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and beat until combined. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Add in flour and baking soda mixing well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Pour 1/2 of the batter into your prepared baking dish.
  6. Dollop the peanut butter on top and swirl into the dough.
  7. Pour the remaining dough on top and spread evenly.
  8. Bake in oven for about 22-25 minutes (until you can insert a knife in the center and it comes out clean).
  9. Let cool before cutting.

I personally think these are best when they are warm and all melty in the middle with a nice cold glass of milk enjoyed by my lonesome curled up on the couch with a comfy blanket for all the feels.
