Finally, I’m posting recipes again!

Haha after many many weeks of  ”all day sickness” I can finally eat, haha! No seriously, I was able to eat but less than my 3 years old daughter. I was always feeling like crap, always having nausea, but hey it’s kind of going in the right direction now (after all I’m starting my 2nd trimester this Tuesday). Yay!

This soup is easy, cheap, delicious and packed with good things I need while pregnant (but hey good for regular people too, haha!)
