Celebrity Foods Soup Recipe


 

As a kid, I used to get “sick food” from my Mom whenever I’d catch the flu.  Inevitably that would mean soup, saltines and her love. As an adult, no one likes getting sick, especially since mommy can’t be around, but I at least still have some yummy “sick food” choices. When my brain feels soupy from me catching the latest flu bug circulating the office, I let it get soaked up by Celebrity Foods’ Home-style Chicken Noodle Soup.

 
Celebrity Foods Home-style Chicken Noodle Soup tastes like it was made from the heart. Its thick noodles, diced chicken, shoestring carrots, and bits of celery make up a hearty bite too.

 
Some things change, as you get older….

 


 

Cooking Instructions


 

Break the ingredients in the bag apart by hitting the bag on the side of a counter. Cut the bag lengthwise and crosswise. Empty the contents of the bag into a pot or double boiler. If a double boiler is not used, the soup must be stirred more often to avoid scorching it.


 

Add 2 quarts of hot water per bag of soup unless the bag specifies otherwise. Heat the soup to 180F, stirring frequently. Once the soup reaches 180F, reduce the heat to the lowest setting and hold it there for 45 minutes with the lid on. Continue stirring the soup occasionally to thoroughly blend the ingredients. Maintain a 140 to 160F temperature at all times.

Adjusting Your Weight

It always seems that beginning around New Year, discussion here at Celebrity Foods seems to turn toward fitness goals.  Most indices determine one’s healthy weight in relation to one’s height. Does that me that fitness goals are specific to one’s height as well?  Recently, with our height in mind, the crew and I talked about what foods were in our diet and how much we exercised. Diet or exercise, we wondered, which should get more focus in achieving one’s ideal body weight?  I found my answers online of course, in Forbes Magazine’s latest issue. I thought I should share my take on this with you. It turns out that my co-workers and I should share the same fitness goals in spite of our differences in height.

 

Diet

 
We often eat for enjoyment, but we obviously eat to survive as well.  In order to maximize our health there are certain nutrients we need for our internal organs and bones to stay healthy and strong. Some fat should be included in our diet, just the good stuff though, like omega -3-fatty acids, which help reduce strain on the heart, blood clots, and heart beat irregularities. This good fat can be found in fish oil from common fish like my favorite, Celebrity Foods Alaskan Salmon Fillets. If you drink coffee or tea, drink just as much water. Water helps process or metabolize stored fat, contains natural antioxidants, and our bodies need it to resupply the percentage of water our bodies are made up of.
 
If it’s energy you need more of, switch from candy and coffee to vegetables. That candy bar snack doesn’t taste good because it has good fat in it. That’s the sugar content talkin. That quick jolt in the afternoon that soda gives you which makes you crash a few hours later. Many better choices, like asparagus, contain the natural energy boost – Vitamin C.  Carrots might help you stare at the computer screen better too, providing the vision health booster, Vitamin A. Crave longevity over a taste quick fix. You’re still hungry when you’re not getting enough nutrients in your body.
 
When it comes to maintaining strong healthy muscles, eating meat in moderation gives you the protein needed for that. Eating meat in moderation also helps prevent fatigue. My favorite protein is my habitual Friday night treat, Celebrity Foods’ protein and iron rich Porterhouse Steak, with its mouth-watering flavor (okay, that was a shameless plug).

 
Exercise
 
Work at Celebrity Foods definitely feels like exercise sometimes, hustling and bustling from one office to the next, but I’m just as busy when I sleep. Getting at least 8 hours of sleep each night is exercise for my body. It rejuvenates as I sleep, processing nutrients. While I’m awake though, I plan to go to the gym and meet with a fitness expert on creating a 3-4 day workout schedule. While my legs and feet are getting the workout when I’m hustling and bustling from one office to the next, the rest of me is not.

 
Forbes.com mentions in their latest issue that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta states that “60% of the U.S. population aged 20 and older is obese.”  The “SuperSize Me” movie may not be that far off or funny…and although each person is truly unique when it comes to figuring out one’s ideal body weight, staying at that healthy weight seems to be the same process for all of us.

Celebrity Foods Employees Totally Hooked

During my first month as an employee at Celebrity Foods, I tried a lot of different kinds of food and heard a lot of different kinds of food-related stories. When I tried Celebrity Foods’ Smoked Salmon, I was totally hooked on Celebrity Foods’ seafood. When I was a kid, I was allergic to seafood but always liked relating my brother and I’s summer fishing trips at Lake Barcroft to the kids at school. I think stories stay with us and make us smile just as much when we’re adults as when we’re kids so in honor of great Celebrity Foods’ Salmon, I’m going to share with you my fishing story.
 
When it was summer time, my brother and I were totally hooked on going to my grandparents’ house near Lake Barcroft. On the first morning at my grandparents’ house, we always woke up to my Mom clattering in the garage while looking for our bamboo fishing poles.  I don’t know how those things lasted every year because my grandmother Ririroo always threw them in the trunk of her Cadillac before we headed to the lake. They seemed to get lost in the garage between seasons every year too, surprisingly not in the big boat-like trunk of the Cadillac, which now reminds me of my manager’s desk at Celebrity Foods. Anyway, my brother and I just loved trying to run after the fish in the water. Our fishing poles usually were on the ground within minutes of arrival at the lake because we had more fun running after the fish than trying to catch them. Sometimes though we caught a big Rainbow Trout or two, sometimes just caught Sunnies, and sometimes we just caught our fingers on the hook, but we always caught something.


 
If you love fishing and quality seafood as much as I, reply to this post on why or post your own fishing story here in the Stories section of Celebrity Foods Employees.
