Rain or shine, its always time for a bowl of soup in my book. My husband hates when I make soup and its not raining (even if he thinks the soup is delicious), he just finds it odd that one would want soup on a hot day? I say soup it up!
I am a huge fan of potato-leek soup and this is a variation of it with a ton of broccoli in it for more flavor and more greens! It’s dairy free and still super creamy, thanks to the addition of the potatoes and the coconut milk.
Next time your stuffed from the weekend and want a nice and clean meatless Monday, give this soup a try. It’s light, yet filling and very yummy! Enjoy!

Can we talk about how much I love Vietnamese food pho a minute? (hehe)
But seriously, I love how vietnamese food has so many different flavors and herbs that make your taste buds sing. Also, most of it *can* be super cheap to make because really, its all in the fresh ingredients you toss on the top. Its just delicious.
One of my favorite comfort foods is Pho. Pho is a vietnamese soup consisting of a delicious broth, rice noodles, some meat and topped off with fresh herbs. One of my most favorite bowls of Pho is at Elizabeth St. Cafe in Austin, Texas. I just love that restaurant and their lemongrass chicken pho is TDF.
I really wanted to turn my favorite bowl of pho into a Whole30 compliant version. I’ve seen a few paleo bloggers use spiralized daikon in place as noodles and so I decided to use that instead of zoodles (zucchini noodles). It is a great noodle replacement and the pho turned out fantastic! If you can’t find daikon, feel free to use whatever spiralized veggie you want. Pretty sure they’ll all be good in it!

This is one of my favorite meal prep tips of all time. It’s a two for one special y’all and I love it! Throw a ton of ingredients in a pot and let it simmer for 3 hours and you’ll have absolutely delicious homemade broth and lots of shredded chicken!
The shredded chicken is fantastic for chicken salads, in soups, in breakfast hashes, in casseroles, in pasta, in ANYTHING (except for dessert, obviously). Try making this super easy Buffalo Chicken Salad for starters–yummo.
The broth is great for homemade soups and I even love it in a coffee mug to just sip on because its delicious, comforting and nourishing!
