With the end of the year rush ahead of us, I want to focus on quick & easy meal tips this month! I’ve got a great timesaver for you today that will help with dinner in a BIG way.

Have you ever made a soup starter kit? 

These handy food-prep bags make getting dinner ready SO fast because you do all the prep work ahead of time.

When it’s time to cook, you simply pull your bag out of the freezer, pop the ingredients into a soup pot or slow cooker, add the other ingredients (liquid, protein, seasoning) and you’re on your way to a healthy and delicious meal.

How to make a soup starter kit:

Materials: Quart-sized freezer bags, label, permanent marker

Ingredients – you’ll want 1 pound (500 g) of veggies for each soup kit

For the soup base: Carrots, onion, celery. Optional “extra” veggies:  Bell peppers, summer squash, zucchini, sweet potato, corn.

To make your kit, chop the veggies. For best results, blanch them by dropping them into boiling water for 4-5 minutes and then placing them in ice water so they can quickly cool. Dry thoroughly, then place in the freezer bag, removing all the air before sealing.

Label your bag with contents and date.

When it’s time to cook, simply put them in the slow cooker with:

  • 1 lb (500 g)  – turkey, beef, chicken
  • (Plant-based option: Add canned beans and rice/quinoa about 2-3 hours before it’s time to eat)
  • Large can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 quart (950 ml) broth
  • 1-2 tsp of your fave spices & seasonings – thyme, marjoram, a bay leaf, etc.


And let simmer on low for 4-6 hours.

Over time you’ll come up with your favorite variations. You really can’t go wrong!

I’ve got a serious question for you today … 

… there have been literally thousands of memes on social media this year, joking about how crazy 2020 has been and guessing what terrible thing is going to happen next.

You’ve probably seen them. What I want know to is:

How do YOU want to finish out this year?

Do you want to be passive, braced for the next thing that might happen? 

Or do you want to take back as much control as you can, and make progress toward whatever you want in your life?

It’s up to you!

As you might guess, I’m definitely NOT going to write off 2020 just yet!

We have TWO MONTHS left of the year. What do you want to accomplish? 

What do you want to look back on when we wrap up 2020 and feel proud of?

YOU STILL HAVE TIME. 

You can accomplish incredible things between now and the end of the year.  

Just think about the possibilities! 

Being able to take time for myself without feeling guilty … develop an exercise routine and stick to it … cleaning up your diet so you get your energy back (finally!) after quarantine … have more patience with my kids and spouse … and on and on! 

You just need to make a decision on how you want to finish the year. 

And just remember that every single decision you make is shaping your future. 

“Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.” – Harry S. Truman

Are you with me on finishing out this year strong and with NO excuses!? 

Let’s Finish Strong, 

Remember you are a Rock STAR!
