Paleo Thai Soup

Every now and then I get a craving for Thai.  Today was  a busy day and I decided to do a crock-pot meal.  I love returning home to a cooked meal.  I used what I had to create Paleo Thai Soup.  I love simple and easy…this recipe is just that!  The key to success is to plan ahead!  If you know your schedule will be busy, find a simple meal to make.  I find simple meals often happen in the crock-pot at our house.

I want to share a little crock-pot tip.  I will put my meals in our crock-pot and use a light timer to have it go on and off at the correct time.  I think I picked my timer up for $2 at IKEA.  It is a cheap and easy trick to help make my life easier!

[…] We love Thai in our house.  It is a great safe option for a Paleo lifestyle, just omit the rice.  We have a great little Thai restaurant 10 minutes from our house.  I normally order Tom Kha and Pad Ped.  For those who have never had Tom Kha soup, I recommend you give it a try.  It is sweet from the coconut milk and salty from the fish sauce.  I have made a crockpot version and you can take a peak here.
