Day 3 Paleo Diary, Butternut Squash Bisque Recipe

08 Mar

Good Morning everyone and happy Thursday to you all! I hope you are having a great week filled with great meals ( okay..that was cheesy, I know…but I am in THAT mood today).  I am running a little behind here ( shame on me), so I am posting yesterday’s Paleo food diary today. To make up for my delay, I am also adding a recipe to the list: Butternut Squash Bisque.  Yesterday was a very busy day for me, so I did a decent amount of “grazing” instead of eating full meals…..which makes Wednesday’s log look a little different. Here it goes!

Breakfast

  • Egg and Veggie Scramble: 3.5 eggs, 2 oz of grilled chicken, onions, peppers, and mushrooms with Olive Oil
  • Handful of blueberries
  • Supplements: 3 omega 3 pills, 1 probiotic, 1 Vitamin D

10:45 Snack

  • 3 oz of turkey breast
  • handful of almonds

2:00 pm lunch ( late… I was starving!)

  • 4 oz of leftover grilled chicken bacon onion medley
  • 1 cup of bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup of grape tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter

5:00 pm Snack

  • 2 pieces of turkey breast
  • 1 Lara Bar

7:00 dinner

  • Butternut Squash Bisque ( Recipe Below)
  • 4 oz of ground Bison with Seasonings
  • Supplements: 3 omega 3 pills

9:30 snack

  • 1 orange
  • handful of almonds
  • peppermint tea
  • Supplements: 1 probiotic

BUTTERNUT SQUASH BISQUE RECIPE

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Serves: 5-6

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 slices of nitrate free organic pork bacon
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic
  • 2 lbs of chopped butternut Squash
  • 2 cups of carrots chopped
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Cardamom ( optional…but adds a nice spice to the dish)
  • 3 1/2 cups of Organic reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1- 2 cups of warm water ( depends on how thick you would like your bisque to be)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • dash of salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon in a large saucepan or stock pot until done. Remove bacon from pot and set aside on paper towels to drain and tear into bits. Add your garlic to the bacon grease in the pan and cook until golden brown.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the  pot except the apple cider vinegar and warm water. Bring to boil for 20-25 minutes until carrots are mostly cooked through and soft.
  • puree half of your stock pot contents in your food processor for about 45 seconds or until smooth. Add 1/2 cup of your warm water to puree and thin it out. Add half of your apple cider vin. to your batch and blend. Add bacon pieces on top of bisque. Serve hot and enjoy! ( repeat process with the second half of your mix left in your pot. – I suggest blending half of your batch at a time to avoid spilling in your food processor.)

      Hey Nikki! I use a probiotic supplement called Vitabase Suprema Dophilus. Here is the link. I really like them and they are not too expensive.
