A Must Make, MINESTRONE soup!

Move It Momma's MINESTRONE!
You'll Need:
2 cans reduced sodium chicken broth
2 cans diced tomato-no sugar added
1 cup uncooked, whole wheat pasta-I used rotini
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup frozen broccoli
1 can cannelini beans-next time I would use 2 cans, it needed MORE beans!
1 tbs Italian seasoning
1/2 lb chicken breast, pounded and diced
2% mozzarella cheese-shredded for topping
2 tbs flaxseed meal-My secret that goes into ALMOST everything I cook :)
*Saute chicken breast until no longer pink on outside.
Add all ingredients, except cheese and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20minutes or
until vegetables are cooked and pasta is tender!
Serve with mozzarella cheese on top!
My boys LOVED this and my husband said he wanted this quick and easy meal once a week! Yayyyy! Its a MUST-TRY and can't wait to hear what your family says about this super healthy, super delicious SOUP too :)
Indoor cycling UPDATE:
I have lost 5lbs in one week just by adding this spinning routine 4 days a week. You can read about the bike I use, here. If you haven't read my blog in the past, when I became a stay at home mom, I had to get creative with my workouts, no fancy equipment and no gym membership. It consisted of workout videos, running/jogging, and bike riding outside with my boys! I had a CSN discount code that I used toward this bike, since like I had said before, I taught spin class in college. Whew, I'm FAR from the workout Guru that I used to be at that age, so last week my body was in TOTAL shock after doing this indoor cycling bike for just ONE DAY...sad, but true! Now I'm up to about 45-50 minutes, listening to my iPod, changing resistance constantly and going strong! I weighed in two days ago and I was at five pounds..woohooo, can't wait to see what a few more weeks will get me! On the days I do not use the bike, I jog outdoors-2-3 miles! Hope you're sticking to your resolutions and making 2011 a great year!!
