White bean and kale soup 0sp

I made this in my instant pot on slow cooker but you could also use the soup setting for 15 minutes or until veggies are cooked and broth is amazing :)

My husband absolutely loved this soup and it will be made again!

White bean and kale soup 0sp Serving size 1 1/2 cups

  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 large carrot chopped small
  • 1 celery stalk chopped 
  • 4 cloves of garlic (I used a garlic press for them) Use less if you don't like garlic
  • 15oz can of fire roasted diced tomatoes or diced tomatoes with seasonings
  • 4 cups of chicken broth low sodium (I used some that I had made)
  • 1 tsp thyme dried
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cans of white kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups of chopped kale (no stalk)
  • ground black pepper
  • you could add salt depending on the broth you use but I didn't need any as it was very flavorful
I sprayed my instant pot with not stick (you could use some olive oil) and sauteed the onion, carrot, celery and garlic for 3-5 minutes just till the onion and garlic start to get soft and lightly cooked you don't want to burn them.

Add it all the other ingredients except the salt and pepper.

Put in the slow cooker for 4 hours depending on your slow cooker.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy!

Strawberry chill 0sp or SF

I made this tonight for dessert and it was a hit with both the hubs and I!

Strawberry chill 0sp on Freestyle or SF

1/2c plain Greek yogurt
1/2c frozen sliced strawberries
I used my small blender and drizzled a little bit of water or you could use skim milk to get it started blending.
Because the strawberries weren't that sweet I added a bit of sweetener
Optional: 5g mini semi sweet chocolate chips 1sp

Lentil soup with sausage

We had leftover sausage which I used so that made it 3sp without the sausage on the new Freestyle plan it would be 0sp, also 0sp on simply filling without the sausage.

This soup turned out so good! I will definitely be making it again.

Lentil soup 0sp or Simply Filling without the sausage
1 carton of low sodium chicken broth
3 cups of water
1 small can of diced tomatoes with garlic and herbs including juice
2 stalks of celery sliced
1 onion diced
I have a bag of shredded carrot in the fridge so I grab a couple of handfuls :)
3 cloves of garlic diced
8 oz of lentils I used green ones I had in my cupboard and I weighed it to get 8 oz
2 bay leaves
1/4 tsp of oregano, thyme and basil
ground pepper
salt to taste
I had some frozen chopped kale in my freezer so I also put a couple of cups in

I cooked it in my instant pot on the slow cooker mode for 5 hours
