10 Veggie Winter Soup (Keto, Whole30, Paleo)

10 Veggie Soup! (Well 9 veggie soup because I forgot to get spinach 🙄) All the non starchy veggies I could fit into my pot plus a container of brodo and a sprinkle of parm. This keto soup is perfect to warm you up on a cold day and keep you fill for hours.

This recipe is also perfect for anyone under the weather or suffering from the dreaded Keto Flu.

What You’ll Need
1 container Brodo Hearth Bone Broth
1 container crushed tomatoes
1 head celery
2 carrots
1 fennel bulb
1 onion
1 bag frozen chopped string beans
2 zucchini
3 cloves garlic
1 cup Palmini rice
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp dried oregano
2 big pinches of pink salt
Fresh cracked pepper
Sprinkle of parmesan cheese (optional)

What To Do
Dice all the veggies into bite size pieces. Add a tablespoon of oil to your post and sauté the celery, garlic, and onion. Once fragrant, add all the veggies and seasoning. Stir until veggies soften then add the broth. Simmer for about 20 minutes then enjoy!

This keto soup is super transformational as well. Feel free to add sugar-free sausage, ground meat or other protein to help bulk the soup up. Let me know how you make it in the comments below!

The BEST Keto Breakfast (No Eggs!!)

If you ever watch any of my Instagram stories, you know I am a yogurt and granola fiend. It is my absolute favorite breakfast (sorry eggs!) and is so quick and easy and perfect to travel with. The only problem is when I started on keto, I was always told that yogurt and granola were sugar-packed no-nos and to forget enjoying them ever again. Talk about being bummed.

But thankfully, with the popularity of the keto diet, new products came out and I have done my due diligence and have tried them all (tough life right? lol).

For the perfect yogurt and granola combo, I have found two winners that take all – no contest.

My favorite yogurt is definitely Two Good. It doesn’t tout itself as Keto, but read the labels! It’s only 80 calories with 2 grams fat, 12 grams of protein, and only 3 net carbs. And this is for ALL of their flavors. This is my favorite snack to grab or breakfast to load up with granola.

Second, granola. I was already a fan of the SoNourished brand (check out their pancake syrup as an add on to your granola and yogurt – so good!) so when they announced they were coming out with a line of three granolas, I was excited.

This granola is so good! First, some of my favorite fast facts about the company and the granola:

  • GRAIN-FREE & KETO GRANOLA – Made with high-quality ingredients without the sugar. Don’t sacrifice on flavor with your keto diet. There is literally no junk or filler in this granola which is so important to me. So many ‘keto’ granolas on the market are packed with chemicals and fake stuff, I loved seeing the ingredient list for this granola (I’ll post below!) 
  • PERFECT DIETARY CONCERNS – This granola is Sugar-free, Gluten-free, Grain-free, Keto-friendly and Vegan!
  • ONLY 2G-3G NET CARBS PER SERVING – Perfect for anyone on the keto diet or trying to reduce their sugar intake! Low carb so you can have multiple servings of our low carb granola, guilt-free! 
  • MADE WITH LOVE IN THE USA – This granola mix is made 100% in the USA. The SoNourished founders (a married couple, I LOVE that!) are keto dieters and have been for over 6 years, so they personally tested and improved keto granola for over a year until they found the perfect flavor and consistency.
  • THE PRICE: I dare you to find another keto granola with this clean of products, made in the USA, and at only $9.99 a bag. You won’t be able to because I have scoured the market and this is the real deal!

Now for the flavor breakdowns:

  • Blueberry: do you guys remember the Kellogg’s Special K blueberry cereal bars? They were always my favorite snack bars (before I realized that yes they were low fat, but jam packed with sugar – how times have changed!) because they were so delicious and the blueberry taste is SO GOOD! I’m ordering my next bag down and will try to create snack bars with the granola – stay tuned for that recipe!
  • Coconut Cashew: This flavor is so good and subtle, I think people who aren’t into coconut would like it! It tastes great with flavored yogurt and is perfect to snack on right from the bag.
  • Maple Pecan: this flavor makes the perfect yogurt parfait every single time. Add your favorite yogurt to a glass (I like the Two Good vanilla or coconut yogurt for this). Top with a serving of granola then drizzle the pancake syrup on top. OMG this makes for an incredible breakfast or a fantastic dessert!

6 Months With Peloton: My Favorite Rides and Recommendations (Plus, Workout Schedule)

Out of everything I own, me Peloton is my favorite (and most expensive) purchase. I dedicated a year of my life to saving up for the bike and have not regretted it for a single day.

The only con of the Peloton is my inability to stop talking it about! I love telling people about the amazing instructors, rides that made me cry (in a good way), and how my fitness level has never been higher.

Not mention that I love all aspects of the app, not just the bike. After 6 months I am 296 classes in and I haven’t found a class I didn’t enjoy. I love taking my favorite instructors on long walks, try a new power yoga flow, try a sleep meditation, or even try a barre class.

So now that you know that I love talking about Peloton, let’s dive into my favorite rides and workout recommendations. If you aren’t interested in purchasing a bike or a tread, the Peloton app is still absolutely worth the $12.99 monthly fee. The app comes with all the same classes as the bike like barre, running, stretching, yoga, strength, meditation and more. Like I said above, I love using the app regularly for walking and meditations.

Note: To get $100 off your Peloton purchase, you can use my referral code of DFQGRR.

My Favorite Peloton Must-Haves

When I ordered my Peloton, I actually went to Amazon to buy new pedals. Now, there is nothing wrong with Peloton’s pedals, but I knew I wanted SPD clips for my spin shoes that I already owned plus I knew I wanted pedals that had cages on them so my boyfriend and friends could use the bike without commenting to buying shoes.

  • Venzo Fitness SPD Pedals with Toe Clips & Cleats – These pedals are perfect. I had the Peloton delivery guys install them for me (took 2 minutes) and the cages work perfectly. Plus, the clips that many seem to struggle with are easy to clip in and out of. You can get the ones I have here.
  • Supermats Heavy Duty Equipment Mat – Even though I just bought an expensive bike, I still want to save money where possible 😀 Instead of getting the Peloton bike mat, I ordered a similar, heavy duty mat from Amazon for a fraction of the price. You can get the one I have here.
  • Neoprene Dumbbell Hand Weights – Speaking of me being cheap with certain things, the Peloton weights are so expensive! I got a pair of Amazon Basic 5-lb weights on the cheap. You can get the ones I have here.
  • S’well Stainless Steel 17 oz Water Bottle – Love this bottle! It is seriously the prettiest thing I own and is the perfect size to get me through a spin class. You can get the one I have here.
  • TIEM Slipstream – Indoor Cycling Spin Shoe – These might not be for everyone, but I am obsessed with my Times. They are super conformable and perfect for my wide feet. I have found the more narrow shoes actually make me feet go numb mid ride so I knew I needed something different. You can get the ones I have here.
  • Bike Seat Cushion – The Peloton bike seat is not for the faint of heart – that narrow seat hurts your butt like nothing else! I have gotten used to the seat by now but this cushion was a lifesaver during my first few months of riding. You can get the one I have here.

My Favorite Peloton Rides

These are my all-time favorite rides and the ones I always recommend to new riders. They are so fun and challenging with great music and an instructor that keeps you in it to the end. I love an instructor that talks (am I only the one?!) – I find this distracts me from the grueling task at hand and makes me feel like I’m riding with a friend.

  • Robin Arzon’s 30 Minute Lizzo Ride from 8/2/19 – This is my absolute favorite and the first ride I recommend to anyone who asks. It’s a studio ride with a great class who are all so into Robin and the music. The front row is high-fiving and having the best time and Robin is so incredible at hyping both the studio and home riders up! Not to mention the playlist is absolute fire all from our girl, Lizzo.
  • Robin Arzon’s 30 Minute Greatest Showman Ride from 11/16/18 – As someone who had never listened to the Greatest Showman soundtrack before this ride, it turned me into a fan! Robin is passionate about the music and is one of the most inspirational rides I’ve taken.
  • Cody Rigsby’s 30 Minute Britney Spears Ride from 7/15/19 – This one is going to HYPE. YOU. UP! As a Britney Stan, this ride is everything you could want and more. All the hits and Cody is so entertaining during the ride, the 30 minutes flies by and guess what, you’ve just PR’ed!

My Favorite Peloton Strength Classes

I’m all about pairing my cardio routine with regular strength classes.

  • Sam Yo’s 10 Minute Arm Toning from 6/9/20 – I am obsessed with all of Sam’s strength classes. I feel like a lot of people sleep on his classes, but they are a must. He always incorporates boxing punches and jabs which I love and I can always feel his classes the day after.
  • Robin Arzon’s 10 min Arms & Shoulders Strength from 3/30/20 – For just a 10 minute class, the one is an absolute scorcher. Super low impact, but a great muscle builder.
  • Selena Samuela 20 min Full Body Strength from 6/23/20 – This one is SO GOOD. Truly a full body that works as cardio just as much as strength. You’ll definitely feel this one the next day!

My Peloton Workout Schedule

Monday: 20-minute Arms and Shoulders + 20 minute walk
Tuesday: 20-minute ride + 10 minute Core Workout
Wednesday: Active rest day (Stretch, meditate or walk)
Thursday: 15-min tabata ride + 10-min Core Workout
Friday: 20-minute Glute & Legs Strength + 20 minute walk
