Turkey, Kale, and White Bean Soup

This healthy turkey, kale, and white bean soup takes about 20 minutes to make and is delicious! I love soup in Winter. Who am I kidding, I love homemade soup in the Spring, Summer, and Fall too! If you’re like me, you’ll be eating healthy soup a lot this winter. Turkey, kale, and white beans are inexpensive options for making this healthy soup!
The recipe is pretty simple. Remember to use organic foods if you can. Feel free to substitute your preferred protein, and add-in shredded carrots or red cabbage for even more nutrition! Moreover, if you have fresh herbs on hand, use those! Use spinach if you don’t have kale. I like to toss in both spinach and kale! Add more or less red pepper flakes and black pepper depending on your taste.  For instance, Big Guy puts tabasco in his!
Let me know what you think if you make this easy soup. I’d love to hear your add-ins & substitutions for your personal, healthy way of eating!
