Clean Eating Chicken Tortilla Soup

This Chicken Tortilla Soup is the ULTIMATE in clean, filling, and healthy comfort food! The combination of chicken, veggies, spices, various toppings, and chips is such an amazing and delicious combination.

With all its cheesy goodness, my whole family; including my 3 and 4 year olds, gobbled this up! It’s so easy to make too, just throw everything into your crock, set it to cook on low, and forget about it for a while! This is a perfect dish for a weekend or a Sunday after church meal!

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
  • 4 cups good-quality chicken stock
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 (15-ounce) can whole-kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 white onion, peeled and diced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more/less to taste
  • fresh lime wedges
  • optional garnishes: chopped fresh cilantro, diced avocado,
  • diced red onion, shredded cheese, sour cream, tortilla strips/chips

How to Make:

  1. Mix all of your ingredients into your crock pot and cook for 6-8 hours on low heat, or until the chicken is cooked through and falls apart easily. Use two forks to shred the chicken or you can take all of the chicken out, chop it up, and then mix back in.
  2. Serve hot and top with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and a squeeze of fresh lime.

Hope you love it as much as we did!  After you try this, please get back with me and let me know how it turned out!

Before I got involved with coaching and these groups…

I was a HOT mess.

→ New Mom

→ OFF track with my fitness

→ Sick and tired of being TIRED

→ Daily aches and pains

→ NO time for ME

→ Anxiety, depression, and obsessiveness

→ Unhappy even though I was truly BLESSED

I felt isolated and uncomfortable in my skin and I KNEW that I needed to do SOMETHING and QUICK….

So I took a leap of faith and joined a group just like this one, started exercising again, eating clean, drinking Shakeology, and was FINALLY plugged into the type of SUPPORT and ACCOUNTABILITY that I needed.

By changing things up, getting some help and guidance, and having a group of others JUST like me to help keep me on track – my whole life was and is still being transformed.

Now that I have been doing these groups for almost 4 years now, I am…

→ In the BEST shape and health of my life.

→ My marriage just keeps getting better.

→ I have inspired so many others to have the same type of change.

→ I’m less stressed, more relaxed, & can handle situations so much better now.

→ I can do things I NEVER thought would be possible.

I am looking for 20 to join me for 2017.

I’m looking for people who are serious about changing the way they look and feel.

If you are READY to start your own transformation story with me this January, fill out this application and then I will be in touch!

DON’T doubt yourself for ONE second!!

Take that leap of faith – You will never know what goals you are capable of reaching until you START!

 

Old Pictures Telling Stories

old pictures

Old pictures say a LOT.

Like these…
Age 16 – Age 36

And I never really woke up and changed until 29.

Wreck-less and wrecked for so many years. It took me a long time to really hit rock bottom – because – when it comes to bad, for me it had to get so bad that I no longer had a choice but to change…

And then, I met Jesus.

Read His Word.
Understood it.
Memorized it.
Believed it.

Saw Clearly for the first time…

And believing was easy because I felt His presence and heard Him calling me to something greater…

But success does NOT happen in a straight line; and everyone has a past they’re not particularly proud of.

It takes time to heal wounds.
It takes time to build back trust.

It takes time to REALLY BELIEVE you CAN be forgiven.

Some things “sorry” just doesn’t fix.
Some times wounds have to heal over time.

What matters is what you do TODAY.
What you WILL do tomorrow.
And what you do DAILY.

Your past does NOT have to define you!!
If you stick to a present that reflects your new path, you will CREATE a new future for yourself.

Change is possible for ANYONE.

But you have to work for it. You have to sacrifice doing what you WANT to do for what’s RIGHT.

You have to find a way to keep the “old you” where she belongs…

A distant memory.
A good laugh.
As a testimony.
A lesson to learn from and teach.

Instead of burying the past, use it.
Share your story.

It can help someone else & I would BET it will HEAL you in the process.

And remember – never give up on someone… there is always hope, and there is always a new day each morning.

Fit.
Free.
Forgiven.
