As temperatures outside begin to fall, cravings for hot soups and stews are on the rise!

This Chicken and White Bean Stew provides a nutrient-dense meal that is satisfying and full of flavor. With less than 300 calories per serving, it is low in fat, and contains a whopping 40 grams of protein. Don’t be tempted to omit the bacon on this one – a little goes a long way for depth and flavor!

This stew will freeze well, so I encourage you to make a big pot and package it into individual servings, then use it as a healthy and delicious packed-lunch option.


Final Thought:

Most of us think we do not have enough will power to eat healthfully on a consistent basis; however, developing consistent habits may negate the need for will power at all!

Recent research suggests that when making changes, habits may be more important than will power. So, start by focusing on changes that are relatively easy to make and that can become part of your daily/weekly routine. For example, make a pot of soup every Sunday and use it throughout the week for lunches and quick evening meals. By making the soup every Sunday, you will create new and healthy habits throughout the entire week. You can do it!
