Whole Grain Sweet Potato Chicken Soup

Today was a cold-ish rainy day here and I knew I was going to make soup. So I thought I'd share my quick recipe. Feel free to add whatever makes you happy in a soup; but this is just what I threw together for a quick late lunch for my hubby and I.

  • 1 serving for 2 of whole grain thin spaghetti 
  • 2 Chicken Breasts (cut into 6 pieces)
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 container of Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 tbsp. of sofrito (garlic, cilantro, peppers)
  • 1 tbsp. of salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
First off I added the tbsp of sofrito with the Chicken Broth, salt and pepper and garlic. Let it cook for a few minutes, added the chicken, and I let it cook for about 5 minutes. Then I added the sweet potato and spaghetti. Let everything cook well and it took no more than 25 minutes before it was ready to be served. Very simple, healthy and YUMMY!

Like I mentioned before you can add or take anything you want from the recipe this is something that is very PCOS friendly and low in fat. Very filling too!

Let me know if you try this!

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe!


Hope you are doing well.
  I have a lot of stuff I need to post for you all. 

First off, in the last two weigh in's I lost a total of 8 ounces which to a normal person seem like nothing but for a person with PCOS that is a huge accomplishment. So I am happy about that.

Next thing I wanted to share with you all was that I have been able to come up with some super healthy recipes and ways to satisfy my cravings with PCOS friendly meals.

The first thing I wanted to share was a recipe for:
 Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

1 teaspoon of Raw Sugar
1 1/2 Cups of warm water (110 degrees)
1 tablespoon of dry active yeast
1 tablespoon of light olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour (for the counter and to roll the dough in)

  • In a bowl dissolve the sugar and water, then add the yeast, let it sit until it is foamy.
  • Stir the oil and yeast into the yeast mixture add the flour and Italian Seasoning. 
  • Knead until it becomes a ball (10 mins) then add the ball of dough to a a bowl with olive oil, cover loosely with a warm cloth so the dough has time to double in size.
  • After this put flour on the counter and divide into two pieces for either two thin crust pizzas or leave the dough together for one thick crust pizza.
  • Make the pizza and cook at 425 degrees for approximately 16-20 minutes.
I really loved this recipe and how easy it was to make. Just make sure that you have plenty of time to let it sit and proof so you have a delicious dough. 
For our pizzas here with used all natural organic tomato sauce and used all natural mozzarella. We didn't add too much since it was yummy with cheese alone. 

Let me know if you try this and what type of topping you put on your healthy pizza!
