Lemon Chicken & Rice Soup

How was your day?!

Mine was really chill today and I loved it. This morning I was hooked on the Netflix documentary ‘Making a Murderer’. I watched 4 episodes in a row.. with each one comes more twists and turns and it’s just so interesting! I keep finding myself wondering what’s going to happen next and I keep getting confused with who’s side I’m on. The best part is; it’s a true story, I love anything with a true story background.. I’ll probably start watching it again tonight, I’m determined to see what happens at the end now and what the result is. If you get a chance, check it out and tweet me what you think of it.

Anyways… moving on to the real reason why you started reading this post. SO I love Soup Stock (a soup cafe here in Tokyo) and one of my favourite soups from them is their Lemon Chicken. However, because their soups are all seasonally limited, that soup no longer exists, but I still need it in my life. So I decided to make it myself from scratch. It’s actually a traditional Greek soup called Avgolemeno, I’ve had it before at a Greek restaurant too. It’s easy to make, it just takes time (about 3 hours) and it turned out really good! It was more natural and fresh tasting than the Soup Stock one, if I may say so myself ^.^

Apple Pumpkin Soup

I loveeeee soup… pretty much all year round, but even more so now that it’s getting cooler.

It makes me feel so warm & cozy. If you’re trying to loose weight or maintain your weight soups are a great thing to eat. This is because (if you make it yourself) you can use healthy ingredients and control the salt/sugar. This plus is warm and liquid so it makes you feel full and satisfied faster. Something I like to do is make big batches of soup and keep it in the freezer in separated containers and take it out during lunches or dinners when I’m rushed or have nothing to eat (which is when I’d usually turn to junk food). So having soup ready on hand makes a great satisfying and healthy meal!

 

alright, let’s get into the recipe..
