Turkey Soup

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!!!

Tonight's dinner was about utilizing leftovers, and getting back on track! After a few days of dietary liberties, I sure needed it! And... there is nothing like a "wake-up-call" WOD like today's to get re-motivated. Heavy deadlifts and 400m sprints are nothing but "telling" of one's nutritional well-being! Anyway, it's back to Paleo! This was a great use of leftovers and so comforting on a chilly rainy day. Not to mention totally delicious, nutritious and Paleo! :-)

We enjoyed a turkey for Christmas dinner, and boiled the carcass for a tasty stock. We put the stock in the crock pot and added the following ingredients:

leftover turkey pieces, about 4 cups
1 C celery, chopped
1 C carrots, chopped
1 golden beet, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 turnip, chopped
1/2 C sliced mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T fresh parsley, chopped
1 whole bay leaf
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp sea salt (optional)
splash apple cider vinegar

Cook all ingredients on high for about 2 hours, and then simmer for about 2-3 hours more.
Serve with a side salad, and enjoy!
