I was unable to post last Friday because I was on a trip with my husband. I thought I would have time, but I was oh so wrong. So I’m back on track now! We were actually at a Tony Robbins event and had an amazing experience! It was unforgettable! I met so many awesome people with truly kind spirits. I now understand myself and others so much better. I have a long way to go, but I have learned so much and am excited to implement some of my new skills. I am a changed person, getting back to my true self, and very excited for the future! I’m so lucky to have my soulmate by my side growing with me! He is awesome!
One of the things that I learned is that I used to value certainty so much in my old life. I had so many rules in my head that had to be met in order to feel certain. I had to accomplish everything on my to do list, my kids had to always listen to me, my husband had to do what I said…..is anyone laughing here or relating! These rules made it impossible for me to feel certain, so I was easily frustrated. I’m getting rid of my old rules and created new values and rules to meet my true top needs of love and gratitude. My new rules make it easy for me to feel love and gratitude. That way I feel and see it all the time! It’s amazing what a difference this week has made in my life! I’m excited to practice everything I’ve learned and continue to grow as a person.
Now I’m back to the nitty gritty of life, and my body truly appreciates Paleo food, since I was a little off track while I was gone. To say I was exhausted is an understatement! We didn’t sleep at all on Friday night, and finally made it home on Saturday night. Some warm soup hit the spot and made me feel great! You can make this turkey soup in the crockpot or stovetop. It’s also delicious with chicken. Enjoy!
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- ½ onion diced
- 2 Tbs cumin
- ½ Tbs oregano
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 Tbs parsley
- 4-5 cups turkey broth (depending upon how thick you like it)
- 6 oz. tomato paste
- One 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes
- Two bell peppers diced (any color)
- 2 cups cooked turkey chopped
- Cilantro and avocado for garnish
- Heat a large stockpot over medium and add the olive oil and diced onions. Cook 5-7 minutes.
- Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to medium and cook for 15-25 minutes.
- You can also cook this in a crockpot. Just add all ingredients to the crockpot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or low for 4-5 hours.
If you enjoy soup like I do, you will probably like this Crockpot Minestrone Soup.
