Creamy Poblano and Avocado Soup


2013/05/20 by nikkiledford

I thought I’d throw one up for the paleo AND vegan/vegetarian crowd today. This soup is absolutely fantastic. It’s also pretty versatile in the sense that you can prepare it in a blender or on the stove top as well as serve it warm or cold. Great for winter and PERFECT for summer!

This is an extremely filling soup. Lo-carb, high-fat, with an option to add protein! If you want to thin it out, you could always add some bone broth or vegetable broth in lieu or addition to the coconut milk.

    After a hefty meal of grilled grass-fed tri-tip, tomato & zucchini veggies, and a leafy green salad with vinaigrette, the soup sounds wonderfully light. I’ll plan ahead for Wednesday

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
