Healthy Food Choices

With the new year upon us everyone is thinking health. I have been thinking health since forever but doing more about it since September. This is due to a bucket list trip coming up in the new year. Whatever your thinking is coming from, it is a good thought. The next thing is to stay with it. They say we loose it quickly after the new year starts.

This is a great soup recipe that I got from my daughter. It is from a Paleo Cookbook that Santa brought her husband. She tried it and her entire family loved it! She has four kids and some of them hate veggies but they loved this soup! With that being said, I knew I needed to try it.

If you are trying to eat healthy, you might want to try it too.
