Coconut Broth & Spring Veggies

Hello Beauties!

I love spring!! I love the veggies and the cool air and warming afternoons. This is such a healthy bowl on so many levels. I am a Paleo and Vegan eater. I do always have alternatives to recipes. I have eaten the Paleo way. No grains. No Tofu. Zoodles and riced cauliflower made it amazing. I even tried it with bean thread noodles. YUMMO!! This I do a quick yummy lunch or dinner. Enjoy!
