Classic Tomato Soup Recipe (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)
I’m a big believer that eating some warm, nourishing soups in the thick of winter is an essential part of wellness. The broth and slow cooking is a boon for our sluggish digestion. And slurping the warm elixir comforts us, right down to our cold bones.
