~crockpot paleo cheeseburger soup~

If you are like me, and overdid it in the sweets dept. this holiday season,
you are probably in the market for some healthy food choices.

If you've been reading my blog awhile now, you know I love my crockpot.
{still using the same one we got on our wedding day 17 years ago!

Last night I made a delicious soup that is not only healthy, but very filling.

The recipe is from here~I made all these meals in late September and I am just now on the last one!

Crock Pot Cheeseburger Soup
1 pound ground beef, browned {I used turkey}
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped pepper
1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 ounce)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon pepper
3 cups beef broth {I used low sodium}
4 cups diced potatoes (I skipped, and you will want to if you are serving paelo)
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded. {I left this out and just sprinkled shredded cheese on top, about a 1/2 cup total.}

Combine the beef, or turkey, onion, pepper, spices, tomatoes, broth and potatoes in bag.

Write on bag: ¼ cup flour (almond flour=Paleo), {I used whole wheat}
1 cup milk (almond milk for Paleo, which I used)
1. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
2. About 30 minutes before it is time to eat, combine the flour and milk. Whisk until no
lumps remain. Stir into soup. Add cheese and stir again. Cover and cook until soup is
thickened…about 30 minutes.

Thanks for sharing, this is the kind of healthy cooking I am trying to incorporate for my family. I want to personally thank you for sharing the Paleo substitutions you made as that is very helpful and exactly how I will be cooking it, my husband will appreciate not adding all that cheese. I have found some great recipes at this site as well I also enjoy your other site for health and fitness tips. I appreciate recipes like this that are lower in carbs, that is most helpful to me to lose weight and feel my best.

Looks good! I don't understand the part about the bag though. Do you put everything in the bag and then in the crockpot?
