Cheeseburger soup (low carb, THM S )

So on our family's quest to get healthy one of my goals is make yummy food that everyone will enjoy especially my husband. And tonight I do believe I have perfected my cheeseburger soup! It is a total hit and doesn't leave you feeling heavy!  Yay!

1/2 lb grass fed ground beef
8 oz shredded extra sharp cheddar
3 oz mushrooms sliced
8 oz chopped broccoli (i used frozen)
16 oz radishes chopped to bite size
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sour cream
1&1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (or glucci)
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste

Chop the radishes and boil in medium pot on back of stove.
Brown ground beef in a pot with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add sliced mushrooms and cook till tender then add broccoli and let cook about 5 minutes. Add cream, sour cream,  and water to the pot and mix all together. Once its hot add the shredded cheese and stir till all melted (note* I used the same spoon through all this i didn't need a whisk) when cheese is incorporated sprinkle in the xanthan gum a bit at a time stirring vigorously so it doesn't get lumpy. Check your radishes and if tender drain and add to the pot. Turn to low and let simmer stirring occasionally till your ready to eat!

Who I am, and the food I love!

So I decided to start this blog to share my love of cooking and the healthy yummy recipes I come up with!

I'm following the trim healthy mama diet with my family and am so far down 60+ lbs!

At first the T.H.M. way of eating seemed daunting,  but over time I've come to understand the principles of the plan and have found freedom using new flours and flavors!

Another thing I have been working on adding more to my family's diet of fermented, raw and sprouted goods to help improve our gut flora! 
So that's gonna be this blog, my fun and tasty journey in the culinary world!
