Soups are one of the absolute best things to create in a keto-paleo kitchen, and here’s why.

First, they’re easy to make with leftovers. I made this gem with chicken bone broth (leftover),  an open can of coconut milk (used a small portion to make a different recipe, so yep, it was leftover), and some Polish sausage we didn’t finish the night before at dinner (such a versatile leftover, I can’t even imagine life without it).

Second, soups are very filling because of the liquid content, as well as satisfying because they are often considered a seasonal comfort food by most soup lovers.

The final reason I think soups are so awesome in a keto kitchen is because they are easy to modify from their original high carb form. With just a smidge of creativity, anyone can replace those tasteless, sodium laden, carb-o-rific canned cousins with a quick and hearty meal.
