Every year for as long as I can remember, my family would make turkey and wild rice soup with the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. As I got older and started hosting, I decided to keep the tradition alive. It is one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving! You can also use any leftover chicken if you don't have turkey, any time of the year! We ended up boiling what was left of the turkey to make some bone broth which we mixed with some water for our broth. I am going to list store-bought since that might be easier to come by though. I hope you love this as much as my family and I do!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
