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!
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….
