It’s been another weird week with a holiday sandwiched in the middle of it but really good nonetheless. The flu is making its way around Charlotte something serious but luckily I got a flu shot this year so I seem to be avoiding it but I have been trying to help out some friends in need with homemade chicken noodle soup! It’s also FREEZING here so soup is pretty much the only thing that I want to eat so it’s a win/win for all parties. Get ready for lots of soup pics (judging from the national forecasts most of you should be okay with this) and comfort food. As much as I want January to be off to a “clean” start, intuitive eating for me is all about soup, grilled cheese and pizza right now!
Thursday morning oatmeal between training an early client and subbing a yoga class. I loved this mix of sauteed pears and dried cranberries topped with fig preserves and peanut butter.
Thursday lunch on a rainy, cold day was a grilled cheese with havarti and white cheddar on sourdough with tomato soup sprinkled with some fresh basil. Grapes on the side.
I made the most ginormous pot of chicken noodle soup on Thursday night to nourish the flu-ridden. I have had some recipe requests via Instagram so I’ll get it up this weekend!
Thursday night dinner was a bowl of my chicken noodle soup and a salad.
Friday started bright an early with subbing the 6:30 and 8:10 a.m. classes at Y2. I stayed after class to take some of the 9:15 and then came home and made a second breakfast of eggs and a clementine. First breakfast was a green smoothie.
I taught a packed lunch class at Om Yoga and then made a quick lunch before my weekly Metro management team meeting. I reheated soup and made another salad with a slice of toasted sourdough. Easy and good! The high today was like 35 so this lunch hit the spot.
After my meeting I got a wonderful workout in (details to come) and then wrapped up a couple hours of Metro work from the comfort of my home office. I always leave that meeting with so many take aways!
After a crazy week (and plans to go to Jay Z Saturday night!), I just wanted to stay in tonight. Dinner was homemade pizza which will FOREVER be my most favorite Friday night dinner.
What’s your favorite type of soup? Hard to choose but I love anything my grandmother makes or carrot ginger.
