Another bean recipe coming your way! No, beans are not paleo. But the great thing about this recipe is that all you need to do to make it paleo is not add the beans. It’s that simple. No bitching needed. It’s been a week of bitching on the internet, so let’s clean it up around here, guys. No need to get upset about things that aren’t worth getting upset about. Bigger fish to fry, don’t ya think? This soup is pure comfort food, but the best part is that it’s crazy easy to make. You don’t need a boat load of ingredients and you may already have all of them in your pantry. I made this dish one night when I wasn’t sure what the hell I wanted and it’s now become a staple in our week! Fall is lovely, especially when it’s filled with soup!

I gotta touch on something, because God forbid I share (gasp) ANOTHER BEAN RECIPE. I had a couple people reach out to tell me that I need to rebrand since I’m going outside of paleo these days. Even though I’ve shared thousands of free paleo recipes, 3 paleo cookbooks, and ate paleo for 8+ years. But since I have expanded my palate into other food groups, some people believe I should rebrand my site. So I thought I would put things in perspective – rebranding costs A LOT of money. Thousands upon thousands upon thousands of dollars…while this site already costs A TON of money to run (I think many people think sites are free or don’t cost much money…that is incorrect for a site like this one). Then after you rebrand, you have to hire your web developer to redesign your site to match your rebranding, which also costs thousands of dollars. Rebranding isn’t just calling your site something different, it costs a ton of money. And I’m explaining this because I think we (as human beings who all think we know what is best) think we understand what it takes to run a business, but we really have no idea unless we are in it. I’ve had this website for almost 10 years and it’s stayed alive because I’ve put A LOT of money, time, and hard work into it. And if I now want that hard work to have some beans in it, that’s how it’s going to be. If you are unhappy with that, I’m sorry for your upset, but it’s not worth it. Please do not email me asking me to rebrand, unless you would like to pay for it yourself and become my manager (for free) to handle it all in a smooth fashion.

My soapbox speech has ended.

Woooooooweeeeee I sound like a bitch, huh? I’m ok with that. If people want to share their viewpoint and advice, I’m here to share my own. I gotta stand up for myself! And I’m just at my wit’s end, honestly. A bit exhausted from the last few days of social media and people taking their election stress out on me. Just a reminder, I am not Trump or Biden or Harris or Pence. Or anyone else in government. I’m just a woman who loves to work out, eat delicious food, hang with my dog, and listen to true crime podcasts. I also like to eat beans to clear up my acne and share that experience/food with you. Is that worth getting upset about? Nah. Life is too precious to stress over what other people’s diets look like. You know what you should stress over? How quickly you can get these ingredients and whip this recipe up. Here’s your friendly reminder to say something nice to a stranger today. Kindness goes a long way, especially right now.

    Hey Juli! I know this recipe came out a while ago but it is one of my current faves! I’ve made it once a week for the past several weeks and I’m still loving it! Thanks so much! ❤️

  5. Leigh says:

    I’ve been a follower of your site for years-probably six or so-and have cooked many of your recipes and own 2 of your books. Due to my own health reasons, I was encouraged to *gulp* go plant-based by my doctor. I’ve modified many of my faves of yours because I view a recipe as a list of ingredients/flavors not a bible and you’re great at coming up with good combos and flavors. Sorry for rambling but I said all this to say-I am SO GLAD you’re now making recipes outside of Big Paleo lol. I will be making this soup tonight. 🙂
