Welcome to my blog. I am a dietitian on a mission to create simple, healthy, approachable meals!

paleo chicken tortillaless soup.

paleo chicken tortillaless soup.

grain free chicken ‘tortilla’ soup.

this soup is creamy, packs a ton of flavor and nutrients, and it’s easy peasy.

crockpot recipes really are the best- it take’s most of the thinking and labor out of cooking!

such a cozy and satisfying soup for any time of year if you ask me! the creaminess comes from coconut milk- which is mostly masked by the spices and lime. I really love this one for busy week lunches, and I think you will too.

enjoy! xx
