Taco Soup

Taco Soup
A dreamy, creamy addition to my soup collection for sure!
Who doesn't love tacos?  
Who doesn't love soup?


1 lb grass fed beef
1 TB coconut oil
Taco Spice mix (pre bought -how dare you- or make your own)
4 cups Beef Broth
2 cans tomatoes (fire roasted or Rotel) or a jar of salsa
8 oz cream cheese
shredded monterey jack chesse
lime juice
joseph's pitas


Brown meat in coconut oil.  Add taco spice mix.  Add tomatoes in juices and broth.  Simmer.  Add cream cheese and break up and stir until melted.  Give a good couple squeezes of lime juice.  Divide into serving bowls and add toppings.  Serve with Lime & salt pita chips. 

Lime & salt Pita Chips

Cut up a Joseph's Pita into 2 circles, cutting along the edge with a pair of kitchen scissors.
Then cut each circle into triangles. I arrange my pita triangles on a cookie sheet with holes in it.  (It's made for thin crust pizzas.)  This allows heat to flow thru and makes for a nice crispy chip.
Spray your chips with a little coconut spray, drizzle some lime juice on them and shower with salt.
I have perfected my chip cooking time to 350 degrees for 6 minutes and 45 seconds.  Your time will vary.  Don't walk away from your oven---unless you like burnt chips!

*If you are in Crossover land, pregnant or nursing, brown rice in this would be a lovely addition!

Enjoy & Ole!   


  1. Is this an "S" without the chips?

  2. It's an S WITH the chips :) These are Joseph Pita's made into chips. You are still safe eating these!

  3. I just tried this recipe and it is delicious. Thanks for sharing!

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  


**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
Another study conducted by the academy of Tradi…

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work 
NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking blend (homemade or THM brand)
1/2 c pure can pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay*
Pinch of salt
1 Tb almond butter
1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it
1 Tb coconut oil
Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as you go!  Erythrito…
