Kale & Spinach Me Better Chicken Noodle Soup


gluten free chicken noodle soupAfter hoping this chest cold was going away and being badgered by friends/family to go to the doctor, I finally did, only to find out that this “chest cold” is actually a lung infection and bronchitis.  Armed with my virtual pharmacy of prescriptions given to be my doctor with instructions of bed rest, and liquids  I headed home.  I figured I would up the ante of feeling better with some good old fashion home made chicken noodle soup (gluten free of course).  I added kale and spinach to it, well because I like the and I figure – hey the more antioxidants the better – right?
