Crockpot Vegetable Chicken Soup Recipe

So the first few weeks postpartum I basically lived off cookies, granola bars, bread and bananas -basically anything that was quick and easy unless I had someone else cooking for me! & Since bubs was born I was SERIOUSLY struggling to eat healthy balanced meals - so I decided enough was enough! My health is important and I need to make it a priority in order to ensure my milk is nutrient filled for baby too! So I decided to take out the crockpot and have it do most of the cooking work for me! (This is especially great too because I have not been wanting raw or cold veggies since its winter time!). 



  • 1 L vegetable broth(or chicken)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tbsp better than bouillion (or 2 cubes)
  • 4 cups chopped baby potatoes
  • 4 cups chopped carrots
  • 3 cups chopped celery
  • 4 cups broccoli
  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil(or oil of choice)
  • Mrs.Dash Garlic and Herb Seasoning
  • Spices and seasonings of your choice( I know some people are sensitive to certain seasonings while breastfeeding) - I used 1 tbsp turmeric, Salt & Pepper) - You can add garlic, onions etc.
