Chicken Noodle Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, I hate wasting food and will usually do what I can to re-purpose leftovers in a new meal. The other night we had chicken parmesan and still had some chicken, noodles and green beans leftover. Yesterday I spotted some chicken broth in the pantry and decided to make chicken soup…best decision all day.

Chicken Noodle Soup

  • 1 carton chicken broth
  • Egg noodles
  • Chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
  • Green Beans (and whatever other vegetables you have on hand. I also threw in some corn, carrots and cabbage to the mixture)
  • Seasoning (I used sea salt, pepper, garlic and onion)

I put everything into the crock pot, and cooked on high until it was boiling and then turned it down to low until we were ready to eat. I’ve never made chicken noodle soup before and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.

And the best part about having chicken noodle soup for dinner? Grilled Cheese!

This morning I was at the gym bright and early to hit the treadmill. Today was cardio only and it went by pretty fast, thanks to changing up the incline and speeds when the songs change. I burned 420 calories and went almost 3 miles in 50 minutes. One day I would love to do 3 miles in 30 minutes…but I’m a work in progress.

Breakfast this morning was the same as yesterday: eggs, toast and a banana

I love this combo and really love how it fills me up!

  1. I don’t make soup nearly enough- and there’s no excuse! It couldn’t be easier! I haven’t had a good grilled cheese a long time… I’m thinking that I need to put that on my dinner menu next week (with some tomato soup!).
