There are times that I count my blessings over and over again and this is one of those times. As much as I love the beautiful state of Michigan, I am so fortunate to now live in an area where “winter” temps range from 30-60 degrees instead of -5 to 15. I’ve always been one of those people who are constantly cold though so winters were often brutal for me. Except if I was out snowshoeing, winter hiking, cross country skiing or sitting in a warm brewery. That I could handle.

Yet here I am, with 30 degree temps at night and I’m FREEZING. I immediately change into thick sweat pants & a sweatshirt, bundle in my cheetah snuggie (<– yes I’m obsessed with it) and slip on my ugg slippers when I get home from work.

Oh– and I crave wholesome, hearty food. Which is not always the best for me. Especially if it’s loaded with sodium and makes me bloat like a balloon. (Nobody wants nor needs to see that).

So what I crave, I create. Except this delicious soup is loaded with nutrients NOT sodium. I wish I had more time to make and freeze homemade soups because you can control not only the ingredients you put in but the sodium content as well.

This soup contains your protein in the edamame and your vitamins in the kale. Not to mention it warms you from head to toe!
