Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup


Since I'm still recovering from a nasty cold/flu-thing and my mom just suffered a relapse of the same thing, I decided to make some homemade chicken noodle soup for us. It was a lot of work - more work than I thought it would be - but it was all worth it because it was so good!

The recipe is out of my all-time favourite cook book Eating for Life by Bill Phillips. I love this cookbook for many reasons: first and foremost, there are tons of super easy, truly delicious recipes! I've tried nearly every recipe in this book at least once - some of them I've done many, many times (Just check out all the stickies in the picture below!). Second, I love the large, full-colour pictures of the finished dish. Most cookbooks just print the recipe and cooking instructions without a picture, but I really need a visual to decide if it's something I want to try. Third, another great visual that helps me out, is the picture of the ingredients included on some of the recipes, including the soup I made tonight. Here's what I mean:


And, finally, the best thing about this cookbook, is that every single recipe in it is 100% healthy! You don't have to lower the amout of salt or replace a fatty ingredient with a low-fat alternative, because it's already done for you. This book is a no-brainer, and that's what I like best about it!
