Healthy Meatball Vegetable Soup

 

Good Morning babes! Sunday’s are the best days in our household. We love to take our time waking up with coffee and then usually jump o pinterest to find whatever recipe we’re going to concure that day. Once October hits must Sundays involve a crock-pot or a dutch oven because we are big fans of soup. I was craving meatballs, but didn’t want to carb load with pasta so this Healthy Meatball Vegetable Soup was the perfect thing to whip up.

We normally don’t make vegetable soups because we usually tend to steer towards chili, creamy or pasta based soups for a hearty winter meal, but this recipe did not disappoint. One of our other favorite healthy soup recipes is the Lemon Chicken & Spinach Orzo Soup and this reminded me of that with how light it is however still packed with a ton of flavor. It was pretty easy to prep and didn’t take more than an hour to make. We used our dutch oven for this and had 4 left over meals to eat for the week πŸ™‚ It was perfect timing since the temps went below freezing for the two days after we made it… Love when that happens.

This is the perfect recipe for when you’re wanting a meal to be filling, warm and not adding into the winter weight gain πŸ˜‰

Enjoy babes!

    Im impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog thats both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
