Quarantine Tortellini Soup

I’m sharing a soup recipe that I have now named ‘Quarantine Tortellini Soup’ because I eat it on the regular. It’s tasty and a great way to sneak some kale into your meal. Soup details below.
Ingredients:

  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock/broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 2 carrots peeled & thinly sliced
  • 1 celery rib sliced
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Italian seasoning
  • Tortellini pasta
  • Shaved Parmesan cheese
Directions:
In a stock pot, combine stock/broth, water, kale, carrots, celery, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Bring to low-medium heat and cover. Let simmer for 25 minutes. Add in EVOO and tortellini. Cook until tortellini are al dente. Top with shaved Parmesan cheese.

Lemon & Parsley Rice

Quarantine has involved a lot of snacking and indulging in food/drinks that I don’t normally consume on the regular. If your stomach can also use a break from heavy meals, try this easy lemon + parsley white rice recipe that I whipped up. It’s light and easy on the stomach for when you need a little reset.

Ingredients:

-3 cups white rice

-juice from half of a lemon

-lemon zest

-2 tablespoons olive oil butter (regular butter will work just fine too)

-salt

-pepper

-chopped parsley

Directions:

Cook white rice as directed. In a bowl, combine cooked white rice, olive oil butter, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Add in chopped parsley and mix well. Top with lemon zest and enjoy!

Use the other half of the lemon in your water to add a delicious kick of flavor.

Happy eating!

Quarantine Journal Prompts

Is anyone else feeling so many different emotions lately? While we are all staying in, this is a great time to grab a paper, pen and journal. Let out some of those emotions so you can process and hopefully find more grounding during this time.

I’ve put together a few journal prompts to help you get started.

  • What are you feeling in this exact moment? Write down all of the emotions that come up for you. Know that they are totally valid.
  • What can you control in this moment? Can you think of something that you can’t control and let that go if it doesn’t serve you? 
  • What are you grateful for in this exact moment? Write down everything that you can think of. Then, think deeper and pick out more things. Find gratitude in the common things.
  • What can you do to spread love in this moment? (Love for yourself, for others, etc.)
Keep calm and journal on!
XOXO,
Gee Nicolette
