Chicken, Kale and White Bean Soup

I’m always on the lookout for hearty, healthy soups – ones that make me feel nourished from the inside out. I’m a big fan of the chicken, kale and white bean soup, because it’s gluten free and combines filling, lean protein with lots of amazing vitamins from the kale. It’s also incredibly versatile, meaning you can swap in different types of kale, like Tuscan kale, or different beans like black beans. I know there’s already a ton of green in this dish, but I recommend serving with a simple mixed green salad on the side for maximum health benefits!
