So I’ve been doing good since the New Year with the Paleo
diet way of life….YES, it’s a way of life, a way in which you eat, feed your soul, and let your body know you care about it.
If you’d like more info about Paleo, get your Google on…you’ll find A LOT of info on there.
There are a few sites/apps I love:
http://fastpaleo.com <~~ They have an app (iPhone..don’t know about any other platform) the AMAZING and worth the $1
Nom Nom Paleo and PaleOMG are amazing sites too, for recipes, tips, advice, ect…
With this nasty cold/flu going around my good friend Brandy got rather sick 😦 so the other night I thought I would make some soup, mostly for her, but I ate my fair share. So of course, I have to share it here with you.
What you’ll need:
2 tbsp oil, I used walnut
1/3 red onion, chopped
1 lg head of cauliflower
1/4 can of chipolte peppers in adobo sauce (found in the Mexican food section)
1-2 cups breakfast sausage (such as Jimmy Dean)
4 cups chicken stock
3/4 cup soy milk (or you can use whatever milk you like, that’s not actually milk – coconut, almond, ect.)
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1 ts basil (dried works)
1/2 tsp paprika
S & P to taste
What you’ll do:
~Chop onion and caramelize in oil in large pot over medium heat.
~Meanwhile chop cauliflower, peppers, and sausage.
~When onion is caramelized, add sausage and cook it throughly.
~Add chopped cauliflower and peppers,stir to combine add stock. Turn heat to high, bring to a boil, and simmer, covered, until cauliflower is tender.
~ When cauliflower is done, use an immersion blender and blend, really focusing on the cauliflower, or you can place half of it in a blender and blend. Puree and dump back in pot.
~Add milk of choice
~Add garlic, basil, paprika, S & P and stir to combine.
~Let simmer for 30 minutes or so, to really left flavors combine.
~Serve and enjoy
