January is National Soup Month and a great time to snuggle in with a warm bowl of hearty, healthy goodness. I could honestly live on soup all year-round, but during the frigid cold winter months here in Chicago, I find myself reaching for it more often.
Soup is not only a comforting, nourishing meal, it’s a great fit for my Do M.O.R.E. with Dinner initiative! You can find quick and easy recipes, modify your favorites to be a bit healthier, “shop your kitchen” to use up ingredients on hand and save a trip to the grocery store, or use up those leftovers and decrease food waste!

It may come as no surprise that people want to know more about how their food is grown and raised. According to a 2015 Goldman Sachs study titled “Millennial Munching” 83% want to know more about where their food came from. But it might surprise you to find that they’re placing a great importance on family dinners.

During the farm tour many questions arose about antibiotics. Leah was able to answer every question and provide in-depth explanations from a veterinarian’s perspective. I was impressed with her ability to address such a complex topic so I wanted to do a follow up interview with her and share it with others.

I don’t consider myself as someone who “challenges” herself….life seems to have plenty of its own challenges coming my way on a regular basis to keep me on my toes. However, I am definitely always seeking ways to grow, progress and improve.
Some challenges are big, some are small. Some are scary, accidental, life changing. But they are always a learning experience.
And certainly NOT about perfection.
