More Yummy Food Ideas 4

Here are two great food ideas and one great app to carry along with you!

Semi-Homemade Chicken Soup:
30 minutes or less to make
1. Bring two big boxes of chicken broth to a boil adding in these spices; salt, pepper, garlic salt, vegetable seasoning, natures all purpose seasoning. Taste the broth and add to your liking. Also add in some chopped celery. Cook at a boil for 5-7 min.
2. Cut the heat to a simmer and add in chopped up chicken pieces. I bought a rotisserie chicken from the store.
3. Let that all cook together at a simmer for 10 min.
4. Lastly add in one can of diced carrots( drain the juice out of it first). I cut them in halves after that. Give it a few minutes then it’s done! I had this in bed on this cold day today for an early lunch!

Fruit Bowl Flower Cups:
I’m not sure how this was made but it looks yummy! I say use the picture as your guide and use any fruit you may have in your fridge! I plan on making one for each of my kids today for an after school snack! You can also follow imstafitfoodz on Instagram. I’ll update with a picture tomorrow of my version.

App Time:
Lastly I’ll end this with a great app you can use on your phone to help give you healthy ideas when your at the store! Thanks to my friend Katie….. It’s called SparkRecipes… And it’s free!!!!

I tend to buy 2 days in advance for dinners around here. It means I have fresh vegetables and I don’t spend my money on a bunch of excess stuff I don’t need. It also helps keep the snacks out of my pantry, although everything in moderation I always say, so that chocolate craving is ok to give in to here and there! Finishing this off with a picture my 6 year old drew for me at school! My kids are why I work so hard everyday!

      Thnx mom! Yes fresh carrots are always better! I was on a time crunch that day though! 🙂 lots of broth helps as well, fills you up faster and warms you up too!
