Have you ever done a juice cleanse?

You know, drinking only fresh pressed juice for a day or more to reset, de-puff, and generally reset? 

I have to say, I love the idea of a juice cleanse but I think I like actual food too much to do one.

I do, however, like the idea of a diet “reset,” to get back on track when things get out of balance in the eating department.

Soups and stews are my go-to when it comes to a diet reset because they are packed with protein, fiber, and plenty of nutrients.

This Slow Cooker Chicken, Kale and Sweet Potato Soup is one of my all-time favorites because it’s hearty and filling but also super simple and clean.

Plus, this stew only requires six ingredients!

The prep time is fast, too, with just a bit of washing and chopping to get things going.

This delicious and nourishing soup basically sums up my cooking philosophy: make it simple, make it streamlined, make it real.

Whether you’re in need of a little diet reset, or you just want a warm, nourishing bowl of stew, this one is for you.

Now, let’s make some Slow Cooker Chicken Kale, and Sweet Potato Stew!

Recipe Adaptations

1 | Either boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs will work in this recipe so feel free to use what you like and have on hand.

2 | If you have child or family member who doesn’t like kale you can always pick it out before serving.

3 | Alternatively, you can serve the soup “deconstructed” by picking out some chicken, sweet potatoes and kale (or substitute raw, chopped veggies) separately on a plate along with a little bowl of broth on the side.

4 | Add some crusty bread and freshly grated parmesan if you like.
