Podcast Announcement, Facebook, and a recipe…

Happy Friday Dear Friends!!  Some of you might have noticed that soon I will be posting podcasts.  I received a few comments in which folks expressed their concerns that I might only be posting my blog content via podcasts which is not the case at all!!  My reasoning for the podcasts is as follows: each week I receive hundreds of emails and comments via my web page and my facebook page.  I want so badly to answer every single question but the reality is, I am only one person and there is no way for me to do so. Many of the questions I receive are similar, so answering via podcast will help me to address more folks all at once.  I’ll be joined during my podcasts by Chrissy Gower who runs the Growing Up Paleo blog.  She and I together will discuss and answer your questions ranging from “What kind of pressure cooker should I buy?” to “How do I get my kids off the candy?”  If we ever receive a question outside of our scope of expertise, we will direct you to the correct source for an answer.  Chrissy and I have years of experience with paleo nutrition and combined with my background in psychology and Chrissy’s background in education, collectively we have helped hundreds if not thousands of individuals and families get on track with healthy eating. I will continue to post recipes and blog about important topics as always, so things will not change in the slightest, I promise!!  I love what I do, I love hearing your feedback, and I honestly want to be able to help more folks as best as I can!!  If you would like to submit a question for a podcast, please scroll over podcast on the home page and click “submit a question.”

Another great source of information from Everyday Paleo is my Facebook page.  If you haven’t found and “liked” my page yet, I suggest you do so here! There is often some great conversations happening on my page and I’ll frequently post quick food ideas, tips, answer questions and fill you all in on what the Fragoso clan is up to.

Now, on to the recipe!

Winter Soup

Winter Soup

Quick and Easy Winter Soup

1.5 lbs stew meat, diced

1 butternut squash, peeled and diced

4 carrots, chopped

1 purple onion, diced

4-6 garlic cloves, minced

1 14oz can diced tomatoes

4 cups beef broth (or water and a sea salt to taste, I used Trader Joe’s brand gluten free beef broth)

2 tablespoons cumin

1 tablespoon dried oregano

Black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker, mix well and cook on low for 8 hours.  This is a great base for soup that you can be more creative with!  Try adding in some cayenne for a kick, more or different veggies (I just used what I had left lying around), or like someone suggested on my facebook page, add some fresh ginger!!  This was total comfort food….

    Watch out, Robb Wolf. Looking forward to the podcast and making this stew to take to work for lunch (and breakfast) next week.

  2. Tammy says

    This is fantastic! I let it cook all day and then didn’t actually eat it till the next day and it was fantastic….ummm did I say that already. Thanks for posting

  3. Megan says

    I just bought all of the ingredients and when I got home I realized the recipe was for a slow cooker. Is there any way to make it in a soup pot on the stovetop?

    • Sarah says

      Hi Megan! For sure! Saute the onions first, add the meat and brown it for a few minutes with the onions, add everything else, bring to a boil, and then simmer for 45 min – 1 hour or until the meat and veggies are tender. : )

  4. Jay says

    Love the recipes. I just wanted to make sure 2 tbsp of cumin vs 2 tsp. All your recipes have been awesome but this soup was really strong with the cumin. It was very dark brown and didn’t look like the pic you posted. Thanks again for all the ideas. Looking forward to the cookbook.

    • Sarah says

      Hi Jay, I did use 2 tbsps of cumin… Maybe it was the brand of cumin you use?? Maybe next time cut the cumin down for sure if it was that strong! I’m sorry!!

  5. Sarah says

    Hi Sarah. I made this before and it was great! Planning to make em again but thinkin of adding some coconut milk to make it bit more creamy. Will it work?

    • Sarah says

      Hmmm, you could try! I might change the spices up a bit to go better with the coconut milk like maybe some Garam Masala instead of the cumin?

    This looks absolutely delicious. My wife does not like squash so much though :( do you think yams/sweet potatoes would work just as well?
