Spicy Sausage Soup

Soup in the winter makes winter more manageable.

I’ll eat soup any time of year really, but during winter, I want to eat it much more often. I make it at least a handful of times during winter and a few times in spring for good measure.

Spicy sausage soup ingredients

Spicy sausage: I love spicy foods for one, and I really love spicy sausage. Often when living the FitLife we eat a lot of chicken. I like to switch my protein up from time to time and don’t feel bad about eating a fattier meat. You can always swap for chicken sausage if needed.

Super greens: Have you ever had greens in a soup, it’s amazing. You have to put a lot in there to really make it worth it though. Just a handful on greens won’t do you any good. The greens are a great way to get veggies in but also all the nutrients that come with them.

Brown rice: A nice smart carb option. If possible, buy the full on stuff, not the instant. I use my Instant Pot to make brown rice, wild rice, and quinoa super fast.

White beans: A great smart carb and high in protein!
