We call this Chicken & Vegetable Soup a remix because you can customize it however you choose! Maybe your local farmer’s market had some broccoli or potatoes for sale that you just couldn’t pass up. Perhaps you have some green beans from your garden in the refrigerator that need to be used up. Beef it up with some whole grain rice or have the kids help you make your favorite noodles using your grandmother’s famous egg noodle recipe. This soup can be created exactly how you like it, and it can be tailored to suit your taste from one day to the next. Harvesting wellness is all about enjoying vegetables and seasonal foods that are abundant in the fall!
