I wish I’d had a batch of this last week before I picked up the most wicked cough and cold combination. This resulted in spending three entire days without a voice. This isn’t easy when you live in my¬†world.

I do a lot of talking.

On the bright side, it was a peaceful time for Joe! ūüėČ

I’ve come to the conclusion that running myself ragged and sustaining myself on tuna sandwiches and oatmeal just isn’t going to cut it. Getting sick like this and having it take so long to get better was a real eye opener for me.

Letting my veggie intake slip has had an effect on my health in a direct way. I haven’t been sick in literally years and only once in years had it lasted longer than a week.

Now that I’m on the mend I need to get back to more structure in my eating and get going on my leafy green consumption!

Poor thing, I hope you're doing better! This looks like a yummy way to help. I once read that turmeric is as effective in treating depression as Prozac, so I'm always conscious of eating it each week. Good times, lol. :-)

Yes, I should get a little more turmeric in my life also! The cold is almost completely gone, but its been a rough one. Looking forward to getting a break soon ... we are prepping for our next move to our official residence. Cant wait for the moving to be over. :)

Hi Sandra! Add the spinach in at the end when you add the shredded chicken back to the pot. :)
