Chocolate may be rich in antioxidants, but it’s also usually rich in sugar and calories that I don’t really need to focus on right now.

Gluten-Free Chicken Vegetable Soup with Spinach

Chicken Vegetable Soup with Spinach, Gluten-Free

Are you looking for a light soup for lunch that still has the fiber and protein to last you for hours?

It was also soothing for a tender tummy when I was a little under the weather recently. There’s plenty of flavor without being overpowering.
