Soup for Sick Days

Although yesterday I was feeling much better, storms rolled in last night wreaking their usual havoc on my sinuses. Ahhh!  Bummer!  My scheduled 8 mile run was out of the question, and Cooper and I became semi-permanent fixtures on my couch with hot tea and multiple old episodes of So You Think You Can Dance.  Some of us napped…




While others tried to blog : )


On days like today…only soup will do!  As I debated whether or not I was going to make the drive to the grocery store, I started thinking about all of my favorite soup recipes.  This blog is FULL of them!


Chicken Tortilla Soup




CSA Soup


Curried Butternut Red Lentil Soup


Mushroom Barley Soup




Crockpot Chickpea, Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Stew


Healthy New Year Soup




Crockpot Vegetarian Chili


Jen’s Jumbo


African Peanut Stew







What is your favorite rainy sick day soup recipe???


I’m certainly glad I took advantage of sleeping Cooper because it wasn’t long before he was back up to his wild ways!

    • Thanks Brittany! He is one spunky kitten and so funny the places he will hide! This was his first trip to the top of the fridge. I’m guessing we will find him there often!

  1. My cat used to lay all over my computer when I would try to do homework for my online classes. He also loved to hide on the fridge when people came over. What a goof! Rainy day food… I love me some soup, chili, tea, pizza, grilled cheese. Of course all at the same time! haha not. But seriously, comfort food is the bomb! Oh this is making me excited for fall! What is your favorite flavor of tea?

  2. Yuck! My allergies are acting up with today’s hideous rainstorm, so I can totally feel your pain. My favorite sick soup is (embarrasingly), Campbell’s tomato out of the can. Other favorites include my homemade chicken soup with dumplings and baked potato soup.

    I hope you’re feeling better soon. Love the cat on the fridge. ❤

    • Thanks!
      My dad’s matzah ball soup is my favorite but I didn’t have any in the freezer. There is something about Campbell’s that reminds me of childood (like kraft mac n cheese) that always puts me in a good mood : )

  3. I hope you’re feeling better! And I agree – soup is a MUST when you’re feeling under the weather. My top favorites are matzo ball, chicken noodle, chicken tortilla, + pho. I love them all when I’m not sick, too!

  4. Hope you feel better soon!! At least you’ve got someone to cuddle with if you’re going to be stuck on the couch 🙂 He’s a cutie! When I’m sick, all I want is pho or my mom’s lentil soup and my pup. It’s the best medicine.

  5. That cat cracks me up!! I love So You Think You Can Dance! I tape it and watch it while I run on the treadmill.
