Now that we have all been sticking to our New Year’s resolution of beginning the “FreshOver” challenge , I want to share a classic but good-for-you-in-every-way recipe from the Ziploc Brand FreshOver Recipe Guide that you will adore during the cold weather.

Rachael Ray’s Quick Chick & Noodle Soup recipe is a great family meal because it is so easy to make, you can add organic ingredients and it also includes parsnip so you are getting a boost of Vitamin C, folic acid and fiber. As part of our FreshOver journey, we aim to add a boost of nutrients from seasonal ingredients to each meal.

I am also a fan of incorporating the parsnip into the soup as they are available at the farmer’s market as well as the carrots and onions this time of year. That’s correct; we now have year-round farmer’s markets in the Rhode Island and Connecticut areas so we headed indoors and grabbed ourselves some herbs and vegetables that we used in this soup.

Since the kids already adore chicken noodle soup (who doesn’t?), I figured it would be rather easy to get this variation consumed easily and boy was I right! I think I may have heard a ‘Yum-O!’ once or twice. While the kids and hubby were downing the soup, I informed them that I used a new ingredient in the chicken soup called parsnip – they did not even flinch.

This soup was also a big hit with some friends who were under the weather. When I heard two of my favorite people were not feeling well, I filled up the Ziploc Brand Twist ’n Loc Containers and delivered them some soup. They have loved the soup and the containers because you can remove the lid without splashing and spilling the contents all over you and the counter. Brilliant!

Speaking of love; do you love this FreshOver challenge as much as my family does? Great! I want to make it even more fun by giving away a prize pack! This prize pack will include kitchen gadgets, accessories for trips to a farmer’s market or an eating fresh gift pack with Rachael Ray’s Look + Cook cookbook, each worth about $120.
