Easy, healthy, and delicious Paleo Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup is the perfect way to warm up on a winter day.

Paleo Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup  - easy, healthy, and delicious soup that's perfect for a cold winter day.

Originally shared on Food Fanatic in November 2017. You can find this Paleo Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup and many others over there!

I have fallen into the routine of making butternut squash soup every single night after the kids are in bed. And then the next day I have soup for breakfast and lunch and then I’m sad when dinner rolls around and there is no more soup left.

Is it possible to be addicted to butternut squash soup?

I literally panicked when I walked into the grocery store the other day to find that they were out of all squash but spaghetti squash. I can’t make a creamy soup with spaghetti squash.

I do several different versions of butternut squash soup (like this coconut curry one or this one with crab!) and most nights I’m just kind of throwing whatever I find in the fridge in. You can’t really go wrong when it comes to a soup like this.

Hi guys.

Should we talk about resolutions? I love a new year and a fresh start and setting up intentions and goals. My current resolution list is just a bunch of tiny things that take up 3 pages of a google doc. They’re mostly like “Quit being super cheap and spend the $15 a month on Audible because you love listening to books while you cook”. Nothing life changing. Just little things that I hope will ultimately add up to make be a better person, better mom, better business woman over time.

I also tend to start eating healthier and cleaner but I think it’s more just getting back to normal. Because from Halloween to New Years, we all indulge a little more than usual, right? It’s less a resolution and more just getting back to what we were doing before we had bags and bags of tiny candy bars in our house at all times.  Click for the full recipe

First post of 2018!

How was New Years? I hope it was safe and fun and you spent it with the people you love.

The boyfriend, who was supposed to be out of town until later this week, surprised me and showed up yesterday afternoon so we got to watch the ball drop together and toast at midnight and all those obnoxious couple things. This was our first New Years together so I’m happy we got to be together.

And oh my gosh, you guys. It snowed last night! Like, actual snow.

Paleo Pesto Kale Salad - delicious kale salad with lots of veggies and a paleo (and vegan!) pesto. Prep ahead for lunches and top with an egg or roasted chicken for a complete meal!

Okay.

Yes, this is going to be a cookbook review for a vegan cookbook, The Edgy Veg.

And I know I’m not vegan but I love a vegan cookbook because a lot of the recipes (if you skip the processed ingredients) end up being paleo. Like this kale salad. Totally paleo, full of good stuff, and delicious as is if you are a vegan or, if you’re like me, perfect with a poached egg or a roasted chicken thigh on top.

So last Christmas break, my kids went to our hometown with their dad for, like, 3 weeks. And I didn’t know what to do with myself. So I ended up binge watching just about every video on The Edgy Veg’s youtube channel. Talked a friend into driving me to Whole Foods in Austin (I had no windows on my Jeep and it was very very very cold) and bought a ton of vegan ingredients and then we made, like, 7 recipes from their channel.

Paleo Coconut Curry Butternut Squash Soup is full of spicy, cozy flavor. And it’s easy enough for a quick weeknight dinner!

One of my favorite favorite FAVORITE parts about fall is squash. I love squash. A few weeks ago I drove several towns over to a grocery store that I knew would have different varieties of squash than the stores in my town.

And I spent, like, 30 bucks on squash.

Just squash. Six different varieties of squash though.

But still, my favorite will always be butternut squash. Even though it’s pretty widely available all year long, I still go butternut squash crazy every fall.

I put it in eggs in the morning, I bake it into muffins, I top salads with it, and, of course, I make soup with it.

My all-time favorite is my Autumn Squash Soup (which can also be made paleo if you just substitute full fat coconut milk for the heavy cream and maybe just use fresh apple instead of apple juice) and I make that one at least once a week.
