Too Easy Tomato Soup

When we went gluten and dairy free it was amazing what foods were full of both. I read every label, and many times came up empty on our typical foods due to the now taboo ingredients in them or cross-contamination.

One of these was canned tomato soups.

Thanks to our new Lifestyle plan we had an option, but I tweaked it and made it even easier to mix and serve, and we like the extra texture from the crushed tomatoes.

Ingredients

We get most of our bulk spices from here, and if you are interested in looking at any of the other products we use, you can find them here.

Method

Put all ingredients in a medium stock pot and add water to thin it out to the consistency you desire, and heat until a temperature that you enjoy, or allow to simmer on low for 30-60 minutes to allow the flavors to mix together.

***This a fuel pull addition to a meal on the Trim Healthy Plan, but it does need to be paired with a significant protein source like lean chicken breast or a protein drink. You can also add it to an E or S meal to help fill in.***

Creamy Pickle Soup

I came across a pickle soup online, but it contained ingredients that did not fall into our way of eating. So, I went to the drawing board to make my own, because my children have a low-key obsession with pickles. And, I wanted to make it dairy free, because sometimes I like a bit of a challenge!

I think it is safe to say that this was one of my recipes that would either totally win my large family over, or totally flop and the chickens would reap the benefits of leftovers.

It won them over, and now I hope it does you too!

Ingredients:

Method:

Put 5 Cups of water into a medium stock pot with the broccoli, okra, and onion. Bring to a boil, and place most of the vegetables into the blender with a slotted spoon along with 2-3 cups of the water. Add seasonings, collagen and gelatin. Then, blend the mixture until you can no longer see pieces of okra. Add back to the pot, along with all the other diced veggies, additional water, pickles and pickle juice. Bring to a boil again, and simmer for about 20 minutes.

***This recipe is a fuel pull on the Trim Healthy Plan. You may choose to include lean chicken if you want to, and still keep it in this fuel type.***

Chili Seasoning

It is cold, and icy here in Western Montana. Perfect weather for a great big pot of Chili to be simmering on the stove!

I like a really flavor full chili, and once we had to be cautious of gluten in our foods, that made it a challenge to just grab a seasoning packet off the grocery shelf like I used to.

I have a bit of a DIY attitude, and many of the recipes I have tried for chili seasoning did not leave me or my family completely satisfied. So, when I tweaked it enough that my husband looked at me and said, “this one is good, hunee!” I knew it was the winner!

Method

  • Mix everything together, getting the clumps out before adding to your soup. This mixture is for one large pot of chili, large meaning it will feed more than 12 people because that is how we roll around here.
  • If your pot of soup is small, add by the teaspoon until you reach your desired level of flavoring. We enjoy very flavorful food, and I suggest that you own your flavors here.

***If you are following the Trim Healthy Plan, this blend would make a great addition to any chili of your choice, in any fuel type.***

Method:

Brown the ground meat, and drain off fat. Add the Chili Seasoning, tomatoes, and water (if using). Let simmer for 25 minutes so that the flavors meld together. Own your flavors and adjust if necessary.

***The fuel that this chili falls into on the Trim Healthy Plan is going to be determined by the amount of fat in the meat you use, 96% or lower would be E or FP, and anything higher will be an S***

Peanut, Cauliflower and Kale Curry

I love soup! If you’ve been around the Treehouse, then you will know that soup is how I get my choosy eaters to accept new textures with their sensory processing disorder.

It’s also something that I can add veggies to, without a chole lot of struggle, which is always helpful with lots of littles to feed, and a budget to stick to.

Did I say it was vegetarian AND meatless? Yes! Aren’t you excited now?

Method

Steam the frozen cauliflower in a pot with a lid until it is cooked. Place in a high-powered blender with the 1-2 cups of water, nutritional yeast, peanut powder and seasonings. Blend until completely smooth. Add back to the pot and then add the remaining ingredients and heat until simmering. Adjust tastes to your preferences, and serve with natural peanut butter, and optional toppings.

***This is an S meal on the Trim Healthy Plan, please enjoy this with some additional protein such as a fuel pull shake or a drink with a protein powder of your choice***
