Sometimes, when you get sick, you just need a little TLC. And sometimes, there's no one around who can bring you the soup that you so desire. And when you're a grown up, you KNOW that chicken noodle soup from a can is not the greatest thing for an already sick body. So, when I felt my cold slam dunk me like David Robinson, I researched and found a neat little turkey and kale soup recipe. Thing is, when I'm sick, I'm really tired, so I took the recipe and made it even EASIER and HEALTHIER. I opted for chopped stuff and ditched the rice (my research overtime has taught me I'm prone to Kapha imbalances, so when I've got a cold, rice is a no-go).
I know my busy friends, yogis and parental units can use a little help when feeling under the weather so I hope I shed a little sunshine with the easy recipe below!
Sick Day Turkey and Kale Soup
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Sweet Yellow Onion, Diced
1 1/2 Tsp Garlic, Minced
3 Carrots, Chopped
1 lb Turkey, Ground
1 Bunch Curly Kale, Ribs (stems) Removed
4 Cups Chicken Broth
*Suggestion: I know sometimes this can get expensive, but I'd love to encourage you to buy organic and/or things already chopped, especially when you are sick, tired or both :)
