Okay, okay It’s January and before we talk about this Whole30 Kimchi Soup. I have a confession: I’m back on my Whole30 bullshit. I have such a hate/love for starting up my clean eating plan. It’s obviously tough when we have spent the last month eating fudge, cookies, cheeseboards and eggnog. But it’s necessary. The boundless energy, the new/old pants I can fit in again, and aligning yourself to kick the new year’s booty!

One of the things that will happen with Whole30 is food boredom. I mean, there are so many ways you can eat protein, vegetables, and potatoes. Luckily for you, if you are also embarking on a Whole30 journey I’ve whipped up a few fun recipes to try. Starting with this Whole30 Kimchi Soup.

Fun Fact: I love Kimchi

I eat it all the time. It’s a fermented Korean dish consisting of vegetables, garlic, ginger, chili peppers, and salt. Think like spicy pickled vegetable. In Korean culture, it is normal to eat it at almost any meal. Which, I’m a huge supporter of. Because it is fermented, Kimchi is immune boosting a great for gut health. Personally, I’m very partial to kimchi cauliflower rice for breakfast. But we are talking about this soup today. And you need to whip it up now!
