Whim It with These 10 Winter Wonder Salads and Soups

Did someone call for a chef?

Whew! So here we are in the winter of 2021. The holidays are finally finished.

We’ve cleaned up the holiday dishes, and are now looking to eat a little lighter. Because it’s winter though, most of us tend to eat more calorie enriched comfort food.

With that comes needing a little extra breathing room in our fave joggers during the winter season.

Calling All Foodies

Wherever you are winter wonders are everywhere, including the kitchen. So put your best apron on and get chefing.

Beautifully Presented. Photo by Anastasia Khvaleva on

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a chef on call to deliver you the most appetizing, good for you, fresh food? Well, we can’t all be so lucky, but what we can do is work at being your best chef.

We can also give ourselves the gift of home cooking to hone in on our culinary quest.

Typically, as you might have heard, winter salads are not as popular on the menu this season. But by adding a few that are fun to make and tasty to eat might be a good idea this year.

How about these ultimate winter wonders; the dynamic duo, comforting soups and fresh salads?

This Season the Menu includes Salad and Soup

3 More Winter Salads

  1. Bacon Broccoli Salad

2. Happiness Winter Salad

3. Winter Apple Salad

4 Winter Soups

1. Hearty Beef Stew

2. Soothing Chicken Noodle Soup

3. Comforting Creamy Vegetable Soup

4. Mighty Minestrone Soup

It’s a Wrap

Here are some soups and salads to consider this winter. While it’s not always popular to add salads during the winter season, try these to add some lighter options to your menu this season.

Take Action

Mix and match your salad and soup combos. Try Some or all.

If you make them for yourself or others, comment how it went for you, and how they tasted, and which combos are your favorite. Or reach out on social media. Happy Chefing.

Mix it Up With These 5 Miracle Bites

Glad you came by. Photo by Nicole Michalou on

It’s almost here, all those scrumptious holiday meals that you’re going to be eating soon. Some dishes we’ve waited all year long to have again. And most are not all that calorie-friendly. But oh, so tasty.

It’s the season for nostalgic sentiments of miracles, giving, and merry making, so check out some of these lighter culinary delights that you might find fun to make and yummy to eat; before, at, and/or after your regular holiday meals.

Miracle Bites

These miracle bites, both sweet and savory are sure to get the foodie in you churning.

Ok. Before some of you give these dishes a thumbs down at first glance: Hmm? Maybe, I can try these before I immediately think; these are too foo foo for my normal food picks. Not for me.

Gotcha ya. Try them if you’d like. If not, stick with what has always worked for you — you know you better than anybody. Miracle bites are not for everyone, but they are for anyone who is ready to mix it up a bit.


What foodie doesn’t like discovering some new recipes to add to their sweet palate? For most, anything chocolate is a holiday and year round yes.

This miracle fudge is the jollier version of most holiday fudge we find ourselves going back for seconds.

It’s a great decadent alternative gift you can whip up for you or any of your chocolate fans.

This dish is festive and fun to make with your favorite person.

It’s light and fluffy, sure to be a great savory side dish to look outstanding on any occasion table.

We’ve all heard that we need to get more greens in.

Well, this dish combines getting those greens in, along with some healthier protein, and fiber to keep you on point after those traditional holiday meals.

We all would like a little more bread in our lives.

This particular bread is a bit simpler to make as there is no kneading involved.

Pair it with your favorite butter, cheese, or heck, use it to make a delicious holiday left-over sandwich that might become a new tradition for you.

Gotta love you a good sandwich.

You might have been wondering, like I was, what are miracle bites anyway?

These are the meals that can give us the gift of healthier ingredients, some a bit more on the lighter side, than those heavy calorie/carb holiday meals we usually love to eat.

And hey, we typically only eat these certain foods a few times a year because they are so good. This season maybe at least we can experience a taste of a miracle in these five sweet and savory bites.

If you’re looking to give yourself or someone you care about, a miracle bites gift, Freshly might be a good start to more foodie finds.
