Warm and spicy - perfect for a freezing day.

I took this recipe from my Women’s Health Magazine and modified it to remove any non-primal ingredients (chickpeas and couscous), add more veggies and I also added chicken to pack it with protein.  Note that this doesn’t have any fat in it, so be sure to eat a handful of nuts or some avocado to get your fat for energy.  It’s hearty, spicy and delicious.  

Ingredients (serves 4-6)
– 4 C chicken stock
– 2 large cooked chicken breasts – boneless/skinless, cut into bite size pieces
– 1 28oz can of diced tomatoes (I bought the whole tomatoes and crushed them up with my hands).  Don’t drain the tomatoes – include the water.
– 2 zucchini, sliced in half circles
–  4 artichoke hearts, cut into bite size pieces (if you buy the one’s in the jar, rinse them first to remove other additives like salt)
– 3 C ground up cauliflower – use a food processor to get the cauliflower to a rice-like consistency 
– 3 scallions, thinly sliced
– 1/4 C fresh chopped parsley
– 1 Tbsp fresh chopped basil
–  1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp cayenne
–  1/2 tsp oregano (ground)


  1. In a large pot, bring stock plus 2 cups of water to a rolling boil
  2. Reduce heat and add all other ingredients
  3. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until zucchini is cooked 
  4. Enjoy!
