For a while now I’ve been trying to incorporate more beans into our diet as a main protein for one meal each week and have been so happy with this navy bean soup recipe, there was no way I could resist sharing it with you.

Homemade yogurt is a very nutritious and frugal alternative to the store bought variety. It’s also a great way to use up milk that’s close to it’s expiration date (or all those gallons you get in really great sales)!
