Testimony of the Day

“AAAH Maria! So after a week of pure protein and fat (which was MUCH easier than I’d imagined) I lost almost 12 lbs, and I have not taken my acid reflux meds in 3 days! You are a miracle worker. I have been on those (and a host of other meds) for 8+ years !” Nicole

CANNED Chicken Noodle SOUP

I remember enjoying a bowl of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup as a kid, but now that I know what the ingredients are in that little metal can…no thank you!

Chicken Noodle Soup

Man, these photos make me miss summer…I love to take Micah and Kai to the St. Paul’s Farmer’s Market.  While we were there this summer I was reminded of daikon. Daikon may be a new veggie for you. It is technically a radish, but has an extremely mild flavor. If you have tried zucchini pasta before and you are a bit disappointed on how wet the sauce gets due to the zucchini, try daikon! It holds up really great!

NUTRITIONAL INFO (per serving)


Today this sweet woman named Terry came up to us on the beach and started crying. She said I changed her life and she lost over 90 pounds!
Her husband took this photo and she posted it on my private Facebook group (which you can join for support!) and wrote:
“I’m so excited I got to meet my heroes today! Maria & Craig, you saved my life!!!”  Terry
It was a rough day and Terry totally made me remember what is important!

    Never heard of daikon before. I’d use shirataki noodles and call it good!

  • Tracey says:

    Thanks for the shout-out to UNBREADED!

    I was thinking about daikon noodles as I made my hash browns. This recipe sounds delish!

  • No problem girl! I love your blog!

  • Christi says:

    Looks yummy. I will have to try that as soon as my veggie swirler comes! Also wanted to thank you so much for your blog and your book. I got your Secret Weightloss Recipes delivered today and can’t wait to start trying recipes! Some I can’t do because of nuts of almond flour but I’m hoping to be able to find an alternative that isn’t nut for the almond flour…..not to mention there are tons of yummy ones I can do just as written! Thank you so much. This is going to help hubby and I get healthier and we are excited about this new lifestyle change! We’ve tried in the past and always headed back to crap but I’ve learned so much that I know better alternatives now and people like you have helped! We have many health issues at young ages and are hopeful that giving up sugar and wheat, sugary fruits/veggies, etc will help restore some of our health back, if not all in time!

  • Wow! What a way to end my day! It is comments like that to make all the work worth it;)

  • Jennifer says:

    Maria, do you use that spiral slicer a lot and what veggies do you typically use, if I may ask? I just bought one and will be trying it out soon.

  • I’ve only used zucchini and daikon. I like the daikon better because it doesn’t get watery.

    Happy swirling!

  • Jennifer says:

    Thanks! 🙂 I’ll post on my blog if I am successful. I’ll try another veggie or two perhaps. I agree about the zucchini.

  • Eden says:

    I made daikon chips a while back! so yummy with paprika!

  • Anonymous says:

    I made the soup this past weekend and it turned out great. I had never heard of Daikon before, and found some at our local grocery store. After struggling to cut the Daikon into noodle shapes I gave up and shredded all the Daikon using my Salad Shooter….This worked very well.

  • Kim says:

    Can you freeze this? I have been making “noodles” using my mandoline but I might have to invest in a saladacco, the noodles look thinner.

  • DJ Foodie says:

    This looks great, but I wanted to ask about the daikon. It’s a radish with that spicy/musty flavor, even though it’s a mellower radish. How much of that makes it into the flavor of the soup? Looks fantastic, but I’m a bit weird about radishes. In other news, I recently purchased your Art of Healthy Eating – Sweets book. It’s still on its way, but I’m really looking forward to it. I’m glad I found you. You generate some great things for the world. Thanks for that!

  • Cindy says:

    What is the serving size on this? And the chili on the 30 day meal plan…

  • Beth says:

    Hi Maria!
    I have been following your keto adapted diet for over a year now, and am suffering from my first – really nasty – stomach bug…I’m having trouble trying to find things to eat that are easy on the intestines/stomach. Any suggestions?
    I really need to start to eat, as my body seems to have used up most of my remaning body fat for fuel the last 4 days, and is probably starting in on my muscles. I’m so used to grabbing some bland white rice in these situations…
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    I am doing the 30 day meal plan and there is no recipe for the chicken noodle soup and I cannot find it on the site. Where can I find it? – Cristina
