Feed Your Soul

Nutrition is key when it comes to healing and maintaining a healthy body. When struggling with cancer treatments, I know that proper nutrition can fall to the wayside. You may have no appetite. You're tired and weak. Emotionally drained. I am here to confess, that at times, I've been known to eat a bowl of popcorn for dinner, I'm not gonna lie! But, I also made some changes in my diet. I eat less meat, more fruits and veggies, and less processed foods.
One food that I LOVE is S-O-U-P! Every Sunday, I make a big pot of soup and freeze it in little plastic containers. Then, throughout the week, I'll eat it for lunch or as a quick snack. I try to keep a variety in the freezer ranging from Turkey Vegetable to Split Pea, Curried Butternut and Roasted Garlic, Minestrone, Avgolemono (a Greek Chicken and lemon soup), or Chili - to name a few. To me, soup is food for your soul ... you can either eat it as is, with a salad or some crusty bread - easy breezy, yet hearty and nutritious! So, if you find yourself wondering what you could possibly eat when you're not feeling well, have some soup ... it's soothing, comforting, and good for you!
