A New Comfort Food Recipe, Made with Simple, Local Ingredients

fosterfarms-chicken-stew-recipe

Cooler weather calls for comfort food. But when I think of comfort food I think of carbs, carbs, and extra carbs. It’s all the yummy food that’s certainly not on the healthy side and definitely not fresh. An overload of processed foods to be exact.

Recently, however, I accidentally created a healthier version of a comfort food recipe. It all started with the change in weather and the so-called Kinder bug. Mia’s kindergarten school bug for lack of a better word.

fosterfarms-chicken-stew-recipeIt seems that the Kinder bug made its way back into our home for the third time in just 3 months. And let me just say, I’ve made multiple batches of chicken soups and stews because of it. So it’s safe to say I’ve perfected a recipe that is not only delicious but also on the healthier side (less sodium,  antibiotic-free chicken, and local grown fresh ingredients).

  • True story, I had 3 jobs while in college. One of them was a Lancôme consultant. ☺️And I'm still a huge fan 17 years later. Ok, I just might have given away my age with that one. 🙈😆

Currently loving their entire new Visionnaire line (including the Crescendo Peel) as well as their Monsieur Big mascara, Bienfait UV facial sunscreen, Bi-facil eye makeup remover and the prettiest red matte shaker lippie. 💋💄Do you have any Lancôme favorites? .

  • Trying to take photos and video of these kiddos with my phone has caused quite a few of my screens to break. I'm sure many of you might be on the same boat. But we found a pretty neat phone case that has helped prevent drops especially at the park when I'm running around chasing two. 😆😅

  • [ad] I'm all about finding new ways to live a healthier lifestyle. Because in all honesty, the struggle. 🙈So today I'm talking about something I started to incorporate into my morning routine that's been a real game changer. Probiotics. .

Did you know probiotics are “good” bacteria that naturally exist in cultured or fermented foods (like yogurt) and offer benefits to your digestive system? They crowd out unwanted organisms and allow more of the “good” bacteria. But unlike most single strain probiotics, Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotics delivers the “good” bacteria your body needs in both the small and large intestines – giving you more comprehensive digestive coverage. Plus, they deliver more digestive tract coverage than most other single strain products. And if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the Nature Made Advanced Dual Action probiotics, just send it back for a full refund. P.S. We found ours @Walmart ;)
