I decided to jazz up my typical chicken noodle soup recipe by adding a couple of extra veggies. Sometimes, chicken noodle soup isn’t filling enough for me. Additional veggies are the perfect trick.

I work in finance now. Early on in my career, I was more focused on accounting. Immediately upon graduating from college, I worked with a large CPA firm where I earned my CPA license. The hours at the firm were grueling.

We had our traditional busy season that lasted from January to March of each year. Then, we were also busy the first month following each quarter end, which includes April, July, and October.

Needless to say, about 6 months out of every year I would work 50-60 hours a week. In the early part of the year, the hours were closer to 60-65 hours per week. There was no time to come home and cook dinner each night.

By the time I got off work I just wanted to shower and sleep. I learned early on that I would have to meal plan and prep in advance.

One of the perks of being busy during the months I mentioned, meant that we were not busy in December and during the holiday season. Most of us who worked at the firm would take 2-3 weeks vacation in December in preparation for the hell we would endure in January.

I would usually spend this time catching up on my reading. I typically read 10 books during this vacation, alone. I felt starved for an opportunity to come home, just RELAX….and READ.

I also took advantage of this time to meal prep. Over the 2 weeks vacation, I would cook 6-8 hearty soups. I would place them in large Tupperware containers. I labeled each with the type of soup and the date it was cooked.

When work busy season started, every Sunday night I would remove one of the Tupperware containers from the freezer to thaw overnight. I would take the soup with me to work. This would serve as my lunch (and sometimes dinner) each day.

I loved this “strategy.” I was able to commit to eating healthy meals each day without having to put much thought into it. More importantly, I did not have to put any time into it. Work was stressful enough! The last thing I needed to worry about was making time to cook meals.

Chicken noodle soup was one of my favorites of this mass meal prep bunch. However, it needed a little more ummph to it. Spinach and sundried tomatoes have proven to be the perfect addition. These veggies save the soup from becoming dull and boring after the first couple of days. I love meals that I can look forward to each day of the week.

As I do every time I’m looking for a recipe; I searched “soup” and saw this recipe. This was the very first Stay Snatched Recipe I’ve ever made years ago. And I realized I didn’t leave a review and I’ve made it probably a thousand times over the last few years. It’s so flavorful and the tomatoes add a nice touch. Whenever my friends are sick, I make this soup. I honestly don’t like veggies(Horrible, I know) but I eat everything in this recipe as is! Sooo GOOD!!

I love your food prep strategy. I'm in an extended busy phase, and I am not managing my diet well at all. I'm going to think about implementing your strategy.

What a heartwarming recipe! Reminded me of something my grandmother would use to make back when I was still in the Philippines. Love the addition of veggies too. Will totally make this as the weather gets colder and colder. Thank you!
