Chicken and Mixed Vegetable Soup

My stomach has been doing all sorts of funny things lately.  As a result, I have been sticking to simple recipes that do not require any heavy sauces or creams.

Soup has been my main go-to, and last week a sweet friend of mine made a healthy version of chicken and mixed vegetable noodle soup for me. (Thanks, Yana!)  After tasting it and learning how light and easy it was, I asked her for the recipe and made it again on my own a few nights later.

Since there is nothing but chilly weather and snow in the forecast, I might be making a few different versions of this one this week.  I just love how a big bowl of soup warms me right up!
