Typically in winter I crave warm, hearty comfort foods like many others, but for whatever reason, this time I was really craving a salad. Given how cold and snowy it was outside, I figured, why not make this a comforting “winter” salad! With “wintery” ingredients already on hand, like kale and acorn squash, I knew I could whip something tasty up, so away I went.

Even though I love salad, for whatever reason, I never make it for myself. With that realization, I decided it was time to experiment. After tossing some ideas around (bad pun?), this is what I came up with!

It was light, hearty and full of flavour. I knew I’d have to recreate it. Luckily for me, I already had all of the simple ingredients in my fridge. Let’s get to this great and easy soup!

It seems like every holiday season and everytime the turkey comes out, we’ve always got some left over, so instantely turkey soup comes to mind. Now, we already have one recipe for Turkey Soup on the blog and I can guarentee there will be more. I don’t think soup is my strong point in my baking/cooking skills, so practice it is!
This version is hearty and perfect for a cold day when you need to warm up. The rice keeps it light and healthy and you can always add your own variety of veggies.

Before eating this creation, I never thought of quinoa to be a breakfast food, to me it was just a salad adder or rice replacement. But long behold it can be quite delicious for breakfast!! This early morning meal is hearty, packed with healthy options and seems very ‘fall-like’ to me! To make things even quicker in the morning, I made the quinoa the night before and tossed in the ‘extras’ in the morning! Don’t be afraid to alter this recipe to your taste, adding more fruit and nuts, other spices, etc. Remember, it’s your breakfast!! Let’s get to the recipe:
