The combination of carrots and ginger gives it a beautiful orange color and a wonderfully fresh flavor.

Surprisingly easy to make, this soup is rich, creamy, and bursting with goodness.

Garnish with freshly chopped chives, a sprinkle of grated nutmeg, and a thick slice of paleo bread to mop up the leftovers.

Serve as is or with a side of cauliflower rice for a complete meal. Trust me, once you try it, you’ll be hooked!

And, thanks to the Instant Pot, it’s also a snap to make.

Serve with a dollop of vegan Greek yogurt and a side of fresh almond flour tortillas for dipping, and enjoy!

Lettuce wraps are already low in carbs and calories. And these chicken taco wraps are no exception.

They’re the best way to get your Tex-Mex fix – without the heavy carbs and unwanted fat.

Made with lean protein, fresh veggies, and spices, you’ll need fresh lettuce leaves for the wraps.

Serve them with fresh salsa on the side and plenty of sliced jalapeños. Yum!
