I can’t begin to explain how exciting it was to come back home after a long day at work and an evening at the gym to a warm dinner…because this morning I made prepared the easiest meal ever: the Tone It Up Warming Slimdown Soup!
It has all kinds of great, healthy ingredients: carrots, parsnips, scallions, etc. and delicious rosemary and thyme herbs to make it so amazingly perfect for a cold night! It warms your insides. If you want to add turkey or chicken, you can – but it’s also delicious just as a vegetable soup! Personally, I like broth-heavy soups, so I added more liquids.
You throw everything in the slow cooker and boom, dinner is warm and ready when you get home! WHY don’t we use our slow cooker more?! I had to share!
