      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Chicken 
      • Onion
      • Carrots
      • Celery
      • Coconut milk
      • Cheddar Cheese

      Chicken, onion, carrots, celery and coconut milk are all natural, nutritious food sources.  Each have their own list of health benefits.

      But what about Cheddar Cheese? Is dairy healthy?

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture raised cows and try to eat less. 

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Classic chicken pot pie recipes are made with a flour-based crust (refined grains) which means it is practically all sugar. 

      Add a crust with 15g of sugar to this soup, and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.)

      Omit the crust completely, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein, and quality, whole-food energy.

        • 1.5 lbs boneless chicken breast cut into bite size pieces or 2 cups cooked chicken shredded
        • ¼ cup diced onion
        • 2 pcs carrots diced
        • 2 pcs celery sticks diced
        • 2 cloves garlic minced
        • 1 tsp dried thyme
