Chicken Chickpea Soup, Say that three times fast 🙂
Ok well I’m still sick and everyday seems to get worse with a whole new batch of symptoms. I feel like Crap!!! I came up with this soup today since all I’ve been eating has been in liquid form. I better have a
good great weigh-in after all this pain and suffering!! Anyhow I came up with this really yummy recipe.
It’s 13 carbs per bowl and it’s so very worth it.
