A Giant Soup a Day Keeps the Doctor Away! My Colourful Vegetable and Bean “Puzzle” Chicken Soup at Freshii

2 Comments

Colourful, isn’t it?  A giant serving of soup, noodles, and vegetables a day keeps the doctor away!  Okay, so maybe not every day, but every once in awhile a meal like this makes you feel so good from head to toe, inside and out.  After feeling achy, flaming, and under the weather midweek several days ago, I decided that I need something warm and wholesome, something that would taste delicious and soothe me right down to my fingertips and toes.  I didn’t want anything heavy (the thought alone made me queasy), but I still wanted something flavourful and punchy to take away that icky feeling in my throat and mouth. 

Staying home wasn’t an option so I went out and enjoyed some fresh air and had myself some Freshii!  I had a mad craving for soup and thought, “Freshii has soup and I can finally try their rice noodles and stuff myself silly with vegetables until I roll down the street!”  That was the plan and I stuck to it.  Except the rolling down the street part.  I was like a little water balloon by the end of it, but I managed to stay upright for the rest of the day.

Every time I go to Freshii, a huge part of me always feels compelled to order the rice bowls because I love them so much.  I have to force myself to get out of that comfort zone to enjoy their other menu items and I did when I tried their special Mango Tango Burrito months ago last year.  I’ve always wanted to nosh on the rice noodles but the brown rice lover in me won out every time, so the rice noodles became a “I promise I’ll get to it” type of meal.  I finally made good on that promise last week when I came up with the perfect solution to my achies: pop two balloons with one pin by trying the noodles and soup at the same time!  Geninus!  And get my wholesome veggies in at the same time.  Win-win all around.
