Kale, Potato and Mushroom Soup (vegetarian)

At first I wanted to make this with ground turkey but just got back from the grocery store and there was no way I was going back. Right now, I’m taking a short break from meat. Sometimes I do that. I listen to what my body wants. It’s not craving meat at all so I can put it on hold for now. I’m telling you, LISTEN to your body. It will never steer you wrong, you just need to practice the listening part. I definitely will be writing a blog post about listening to your body, it’s one of my favorite topics. This is a perfect soup with lots of flavor, easy to make, simple, and is great for the cold weather.
