What’s your holiday tradition? We have a huge soup bar on Xmas eve! Here are 2 healthy soups that my sister and I love! They share a key ingredient – KALE – and it’s super yummy in these soups. Thank you Bill, Kaci, and the Q13 FOX News crew for having me, it was super fun! 😀

White Bean and Green Soup
This soup is creamy and delicious! You'll never guess it's also healthy. I don't like eating kale raw but I love it in this soup, it gives it a great texture and the soup clings on to the kale. I hope you enjoy it as much as me and my sister!

Chicken Sausage and Kale Soup
This soup is AMAZING! It's so delicious and big flavor clings to every nook and cranny of the kale. Bonus - kale adds vitamins and fiber too, helping to fight disease! We use chicken sausage and a little bit of nitrate-free bacon to give it lots of flavor. You'll love it, my sister and I always get seconds!

  6. 3 cups (or so) fresh kale, tough stems removed and torn into bite-sized pieces

  1. In a non-stick or lightly oiled pan, cook the sausage in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until crumbly and cooked through. Drain and set aside.
