Healthy Recipe: White Bean Soup

This recipe has been in my drafts since 2010. It was in a Healthy Living company newsletter.
Simple and nutritious, this hearty soup is incredibly rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals that will fill you up without filling you out.
Doesn't that sound perfect? I've been wanting to try it ever since but never seemed to have the ingredients on hand (namely, the kale). Since I've resolved to try 2 new recipes a month in 2013, I figured this week was the perfect time. I added kale to my shopping list and was very excited to give it a try.

It was a complete disaster! Even though it didn't turn out seriously, it was so bad that we ended up eating pizza for dinner instead. 
I figured I'd still share the recipe.

Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls

I found this delicious looking recipe over at Nutritious Eats. Ok, well, I actually saw it first over at Happy Fit Mama's menu plan for the week. These sounded and looked so good, I couldn't wait to throw them on our menu plan for the week.

Yes, I actually made a menu plan this week.

I excitedly added egg roll wrappers to my shopping list, and made these the very next night. I was nervous about them because they have spinach in them. Jeff doesn't normally like anything with cooked spinach, so I had pretty much braced myself for having to eat the majority of them.

Turns out the spinach is hardly noticeable AND Jeff really liked them.
