Paleo Minestrone Soup

So I found this recipe and tweaked it to my tastes.  It turned out awesome and it made enough for leftovers which microwaved really well for lunches.

Coconut oil
Diced spicy chicken sausages I bought at Trader Joes.  I have a hard time finding sugar free sausages elsewhere.
Diced carrots
Diced onion
Diced pepper, I chose a red pepper
Diced zucchini
Fresh basil leaves torn into small pieces
8 ounce can tomato sauce
6 cups water
Half a small jar of salsa
Salt and pepper
A little chicken stock

In a large soup pot add the coconut oil and diced sausage, onion, carrot, and pepper.  Saute until veggies start to soften (carrot takes the longest so dice it small) and season with salt and pepper.

Next add 6 cups of water, scraping the bottom of the soup pot, and bring to a boil.

Stir in tomato sauce, a little chicken stock, and some salsa (heat is to your preference level, mine was hot).

Add in the zucchini, basil, and spinach.

When the spinach has wilted it's time to eat!

Lara Bars

Mt favorite flavor of Lara Bar is Pecan Pie, but lately I've been having a hard time finding it.  I'm now digging the Coconut Cream Pie flavor.  It's really good!  I've tried a few new flavors lately like Banana Bread and Lime.  Coconut is where it's at! 

I haven't updated in a long time because we sold our house and have been boxing and moving.
I did make an amazing paleo minestrone soup recipe a few weeks ago that my husband and I loved.
I'll post about that next!
