Testimony of the Day

“When I began my journey with you I was size 3X. I had terrible mood swings and depression. I was diagnosed with autoimmune diseases such as fibromyalgia, idiopathic thrombocytic pupurra (I.T.P.), osteoarthritis and asthma. I had fatty liver disease, high blood pressure, eczema, rosacea, skin tags and migraines.

I am now an extra large, I have no depression or mood swings. Though there is no test to prove it, I feel I no longer have fibromyalgia. I no longer use inhalers for asthma and I feel that has disappeared too. The damage from the osteoarthritis unfortunately cannot be reversed. My low blood platelets from the I. T. P. use to average a count of 30, 000 and now sit between 70 and 80, 000. My iron count averaged around 2 or 3 and I use to get infusions every 6 months. I now average a count of 10 and haven’t had a infussion in over 18 months.

A recent ultrasound shows my liver is now normal. My blood pressure is stable. Skin tags are gone, eczema flare ups are rare and my rosacea is better. Migraine headaches are a thing of my past. I haven’t had a cold in over two years. I have removed 90% of prescription medications from my medicine cabinet. Nobody can convince me that this is a coincidence. I believe 100% there is health benefits to this way of eating.” -Terri

    Who would have thought that low carb “potato” soup could be so good. It was very tasty and filling. I left the “potatoes” in chunks. I added the hot sauce to the recipe and also served it on the side for a little extra kick! mmmmm…good 🙂

  • This is the perfect soup for a day like today!! I added chopped celery, and since I didn’t have any cream cheese on hand I used shredded raw pepper-jack cheese instead and omitted the hot sauce. Thank you for your recipes!!! I have loved each one I’ve tried. Your flappers are my husband’s FAVORITE.

    Hi Maria. I’m a longtime vegetarian who has recently started eating chicken and beef, when I can find humanely raised meat. I’d love to try this recipe but I’m wondering if there are any decent substitutions for the bacon?

  • Donna A. says:

    This is becoming a staple in our house, so easy to make and my husband loves it! Me too.

  • Karen says:

    Try smoked paprika or liquid smoke to emulate the bacon flavors.

  • Joan says:

    I like cauliflower with thyme, but I bet my Jerusalem artichokes would be good in this.

    Hehe I made this for a “soup day” we had at work. I labeled it as potatoe soup with bacon…everyone raved about how good it was! I told them I had a secret & confessed that it wasn’t made with actual potatoes but cauliflower instead, they were all surprised 🙂 I wish I had made a double recipe bc it was so YUMMY!!!
