Sometimes you just need something that is going to be yummy and satisfy your potato craving while getting in a hefty amount of fat in your diet with very few carbs. I was a huge skeptic in using turnips or radishes as a potato alternative. I'm so glad I didn't back down and you will be completely satisfied as well. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did putting it together for you.
This is an excellent way to use up extra chicken. We always have a rotisserie chicken during the week for a quick meal, or I buy the pulled rotisserie meat from Costco. Either way, we always have left over chicken and it ends up being perfect for soups during the week. I'm always experimenting with soups and I love the creamy ones best. My kids love soup too so they are always a hit. I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did.
I had a meaningful conversation Saturday with my neighbor about out health and family members health. I told her we've been doing this thing called keto and she said her doctor recommended a ketogenic diet for her as well.
Low carb and a keto diet are similar but I believe the keto diet has helped us get fast results and feel better then any "diet" before. It's all about increase healthy fats to flush out bad fat and decreasing carbs to make your body use fat as your fuel tank. The protein intake doesn't even change that much from a standard diet. Just remember...increase healthy fats and decrease carbohydrates.
Being that we were just talking about this way of eating and I had a yummy soup in the crock pot I told her I'd send some over so she could taste why this doesn't feel like a diet at all. The food is rich and hearty. A little goes a long way.
Here is my recipe.
I love to cook but only if the meals are healthy, easy, and yummy. .
