Tuscan Turkey Vegetable Soup

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday shared with family and friends. It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone. With each new year many of us turn to resolutions only to be forgotten within weeks of making them. Mine is always pretty much the same – stay healthy and fit by eating well, exercising and enjoying life to the fullest.

If we make a conscious effort, our goals truly are not difficult to maintain. Most of all be happy – laugh a lot and share life with those you love and care about. Be kind and treat others as you would like them to treat you.
