Black Bean & Chicken Soup

Today has been good despite a hovering headache I have. I am currently sitting at the chiropractors office hoping an adjustment will do me good.

I really have some great recipes I have been working on. The family has been enjoying them as well. I have as well because fall is here, you can finally feel it in the air and all of a sudden I feel so alive. I love cooking in the fall and all the smells of fall.

Are you with me?

Fall definitely is my favorite season and now that it's here, I'm at the gym full force, my eating is in check, I feel like I'm on top of the world!!

I love this feeling.

So want a recipe to give a try?

How about...

Black Bean and Chicken Soup

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cans(15 oz) black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 c corn
  • 16 oz salsa
  • 1c Sliced mushrooms
  • 4c chicken bouillon
  • 1 1/2T Cumin
  • 2t paprika
  • 2T chili powder

Place all ingredients in crockpot except the sour cream and mix well.

Cook on low 8 hours, or on high 4 hours. Use an immersion blender to thicken soup and then add sour cream.

Tomorrow I meet with Lacey, my dietician. I'm afraid I'm not going to show any loss on the scale so I will be sure to bring my measurements too. I'm do to measure anyway do it's good timing.

Had a fantastic workout this morning with my son. He spiked a headache unfortunately so he was following me around as I was finishing. I selfishly love it when he does because he will push me harder than I do myself. It's hard to push and motivate yourself, at least I feel it's hard for me to push myself. I really wish I could afford a personal trainer. But that's unfortunately definitely not in the budget. So I will continue working on pushing myself harder and harder.

Have a simply amazing day!
