Today I spent all day cooking for something called a meal train. There is a family, man wife and two children. He is undergoing Chemo treatments and mom is busy working and taking care of two kiddo’s 6 years and 3 months. A meal train is something that someone sets up and people volunteer to make and take a meal. I volunteered and wanted to take enough over so there would be a good amount for left overs as well. I made Paleo Turkey Pot Pie Soup. It’s been a little cold here so I wanted to make something comforting, warming, filling. nurturing, tasty and above all healthy. I just have to say, Turkey’s have HUGE wings! I got one wing and it weighed 2 pounds. Their thighs are pretty darn spectacular as well, huge heavy and very meaty weighing it at over 3 pound each. The night before I make the soup, I put in my crock pot the turkey parts, 3 carrots to line the crock pot, 1 onion whole, one large bunch of garlic whole, 2 tsp sea salt, black pepper and 2 TBS Apple Cider vinegar. I woke up at 4:00 am and I had turned my handy crock on to defrost to start off, so I switched to to low at 4:00 am. When I got to the nitty gritty at 8:00 am the house smelled divine. I turn my crock off and let pulled the turkey meat and parts out to cool. I strained the broth into my largest soup pot and began chopping and dicing vegetables. I use cauliflower puree and full fat coconut milk to thicken my Pot Pie soups. This gives it a very creamy thick gravy like consistency and a extra few servings of vegetables. The best part is you can sneak the hated cauliflower past children and husbands easily without their knowledge.
I also decided to make a roll to go with this hearty soup and decided on the Herb drop biscuits in the 21 DSD book. I will tell you, you need these biscuits in your life! They are now on my Thanksgiving list! I will have to tell you though, if you want the recipe you will have to by the book, sorry I can’t give it out. But what I can do is show you a picture of mine.

I was so busy running around and cooking that I was not hungry again. I don’t know if this is good or bad, but I’m just going to let my body choose when it wants to eat. I really didn’t have much today.
Breakfast was a Bullet Proof Coffee\
Lunch was 1 cup of fut fat organic Kolona cottage cheese
snack was 2 ounces Grass fed Cheddar cheese and small handful of pistachio’s
turkey pot pie soup and herb drop biscuits.
I will post the recipe for the soup as another post, so this one doesn’t get too long
