Happy New Year!
What’s your new year’s resolutions for 2013? For me, health is the most important thing and it ranks the highest on my resolution list this year. As I grow older, I realize just how important health is. It’s something that we always take it for granted but it’s also someting that we can’t afford to lose. Wise people always say that health is wealth, and it is so true. So, for this year, I resolve to eat better, healthier, and always keep my physical well-being in check.
To kick off 2013, I am sharing with you my Chinese chicken noodle soup recipe, which is utterly healthy, delicious, and easy to make. For the Chinese, noodles means longevity, so it’s good to eat something that signifies great health at the start of the year. I have always liked the regular chicken noodle soup, but the Chinese chicken noodle soup is comfort food for me. It’s extremely hearty, especially during the cold winter months.
My favorite part of this Chinese chicken noodle soup is the garlic oil, which infuses the chicken broth with the deep aroma of the fried garlic. For the vegetables, I love baby bok choy for its crisp and leafy texture. As most people do not have a homemade chicken broth, canned chicken broth works just fine.
I wish all my readers a very healthy and happy 2013 and may the new year bring you inspirations, love, and well-being!
