Detox Worthy Chicken and Vegetable Soup

January 10, 2013


I have been so good since New Years!  I have been eating so healthy, and I feel great.  I did raid the peanut butter jar last night though;)  It was an all natural variety that you buy in the refrigerator section of the grocery store, and I am 100% obsessed!!!  If you asked my husband, he would say that’s an understatement!  I try them all, and my favorite is Parkers All Natural!!!!  This unbelievable peanut butter comes in three varieties, creamy, crunchy, and honey.  I am not in love with the honey, it’s too sweet for me, but to be completely honest Parkers peanut butter will be my last meal!!!

If you are going to raid your peanut butter jar, start off with this healthy chicken and vegetable soup, then it will be 100% okay;)
