Tomato Soup Recipe

A few weeks ago Jared threw this recipe together, and it was so delicious that we have made it every week since then! It has no dairy, no grains, and is full of vegetables! Typical canned soups are full of cheap and highly processed ingredients. Here is a quick list from Campbell's Tomato Soup...Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Wheat Flour, Water, Contains less than 2% of: Salt, Potassium, Chloride, Flavoring, Citric Acid, Lower sodium natural sea salt, Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C), Monopotassium Phosphate, Celery Extract. YIKES!!! That is a lot of reasons to make your own! Here is our EASY recipe, let us know what you think!!

Ingredients:Tomato Soup Recipe


8 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 red pepper (or yellow/orange), roughly chopped
2-3 stalks of celery, roughly chopped
2 carrots, diced
1-2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 tablespoon basil
1 tablespoon oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste (I feel like soups usually need more salt than I would think to bring out the flavors, taste as you go, you can always add a little more)
1 can coconut milk
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Chicken stock, (optional)

Lettuce Wrap Tacos

Lettuce Wrap Tacos

We have been using lettuce instead of tortillas recently for taco night or fajita night! In the grand scheme of the ingredients, the tortilla is more of a "filler food." I like to think of foods in terms of their "nutrient density" and the tortilla comes in pretty low on the nutrient density scale. It has a low amount of nutrients and a relatively high amount of calories. So what do we do? 

Replace tortillas with lettuce as the vessel to get all the yummy to your mouth! Its way better for you, and you won’t miss out on any of the flavor!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 lb. Protein of your choice, I used pulled smoked pork that I made (you could also you shredded chicken, shredded beef, ground beef, shrimp, etc. You get the idea!)
  • 2 onions, chopped into strips
  • 1 pepper (green, yellow, red, orange, your choice), chopped into strips
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce (or any other lettuce you can separate and use as a vessel!)

Variations: Skip the oven step, making it even easier, but I like the way it tastes with the tomatillos roasted. You could also roast the onions with the tomatillos!

  • 2 small onions, quartered
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small can of mild diced green chilies (4oz.)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Preheat oven to 375. Place the tomatillos onto a baking sheet, and roast for 20 minutes. Add all ingredients to your food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Place in refrigerator and chill to let the flavors mingle, ENJOY!

I have come to realize that they are delicious, really good for you, hard to screw up, and the options are endless in terms of which veggies, meat, and/or spices that you use. This week I have a butternut squash soup recipe for you! Enjoy!

Easy & Delicious Collard Greens Recipe

Collard Greens

This week we are sharing one of our favorite recipes. Jared has been making us a big pot of collard greens every week for the last few months. Leafy greens such as collards, kale, turnip greens, spinach, romaine lettuce, and swiss chard are nutrient power houses! According to the website Worlds Healthiest Foods , Collard Greens help with high LDL cholesterol, cancer prevention, and acute bowel disorder. They are also anti-inflammatory and are great for bone health and brain health! 

How many greens should you eat in a day? I love Dr. Terry Wahls' take on this matter. She is a medical doctor that healed her own multiple sclerosis by changing her diet. She recommends 9 cups of vegetables per day, 3 of which are leafy greens. She believes this is necessary to heal MS, heal other autoimmune diseases, and provide all the nutrition that your body needs. You can eat them raw or cooked, but I recommend cooked, especially if you have digestive issues.

Here is the recipe!
