Nourishing & healing, creamy "chicken-n-rice" soup with a healthier spin… Paleo, Whole30, Keto & Low Carb!
I'm so happy to share my absolute favorite soup that I make often. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, this soup stays on the menu year 'round at our house because we love it so much.
Besides being one of the most comforting and coziest soups, it's one of the most nourishing, packed with so much nutrition. Carrots, celery, onions and garlic are powerhouse vegetables, full of essential vitamins and nutrients that our bodies need to thrive.
There’s not a better natural healing remedy for "what ails you" than the tried and true chicken soup. I mean, when you throw chicken, onions, celery, garlic carrots and bone broth together, something miraculous happens. It’s just so comforting and definitely full of so many healing properties. It just makes you feel better almost instantly. And the best part, these vegetables are very low in calories and rich in fiber to keep you feeling full...therefore making it easier to burn and lose fat.
I also LOVE cauliflower rice. It is a low-carb staple I keep on hand for so many of my recipes. My secret is frozen riced cauliflower which saves me SO much time. Cauliflower has so many health benefits and my family can't even tell the difference, (that it's not the traditional white rice).
I made the switch to cauliflower years ago because white rice has a high glycemic index, meaning that it can cause spikes in blood sugar. Research proves these types of foods put one at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, among other health concerns. When eating high glycemic foods, weight gain is inevitable. Making this one switch gives me the green light to enjoy another serving of this soup if I wish.
My chicken-n-rice soup really is super delicious, so quick and easy to make. If you need a tasty meal idea to encourage your kids to eat more vegetables, or you are just in the mood for a hearty, comfort-food meal, this is your recipe. My husband and girls love it and beg for more! Let us know if you give our favorite soup a try!
