Soup is a great way of satisfying your appetite, quickly and simply, whether it’s for a main meal or simply a snack. You can make a soup as filling or as light as you like, and fill it with as much or as few proteins and vegetables as you need.
So many soup recipes include cream, milk, grains, or sugars, meaning that paleo eaters either can’t eat them, or have to hunt high and low for alternatives. But there are still lots of great ways to make soup, the paleo way, and we found the best from across the Internet. Happy cooking (and eating, of course)!
