Happy 2013 everyone!
I couldn’t think of a better recipe for the New Year than this wonderful cleansing stew. Get ready to eat a delicious bowl of goodness while accomplishing all your new years resolutions!
By using kale and all fresh winter vegetables, this soup is one big batch of warmth! Boston is totally freezing this week, so I’m looking forward to having this the next few days.
I decided to use lacinato kale because 1. I’m totally obsessed with it right now and 2. I find the texture a nice change from the curly variety, yet it adds a good crunch in the soup. The white beans add a great dose of protein and the parmesan gives it great flavor.
I just have to say how much I love this picture above. It has all the key ingredients from all the great soups that were ever made!
Some of my new years resolutions are the typical; stay true to eating local fresh ingredients and doing more yoga (even if it is just to my iPad in the living room) but most of mine actually fell more into the personal growth area. I’m at a time in my life where things are becoming clear and I can really see my place in this world. I feel very lucky to be where I am with the people who are in my life, and I’m excited to see what will develop for me in 2013.
This month will be local and health foods based, so stay tuned and try some recipes out!! This one I got from Whole Living. I suggest also checking out their Actions Plans from previous years and tips to a good cleanse. They are a great resource with a lot of delicious ideas.
