I’m so excited to share my latest soup obsession with you – this soup is food for the soul! It’s a meatball and vegetable soup (very similar to albondigas, which is a Mexican meatball soup).
My meatball soup is packed with homemade, grass-fed meatballs, beef bone broth, cabbage, carrots, zucchini, and lots of delicious spices. I promise you, healthy comfort food has never tasted so good.

MEATBALL & VEGETABLE SOUP RECIPE
2 pounds grass-fed ground beef*
1 cup cauliflower rice
1/3 cup cilantro
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
8 cups beef broth
4 carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds
1 small cabbage, cut into chunks (8-10 cups)
2 zucchini, cut into quarter moons
*optional (but recommended!)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 lime, juiced
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, eggs, cauliflower rice, cilantro, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano. Add all meatball ingredients to a large bowl and combine well.
Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into your palms, and roll into 1-2 inch meatballs (I get about 40 meatballs). Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven, add in onion with a pinch of salt, and cook for 5-7 minutes or until softened and translucent. Add in garlic and tomatoes, oregano, and another pinch of salt and pepper and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
Add in broth, bring to a boil and reduce back down to a simmer. Carefully add meatballs and simmer for 12-15 minutes. Add in carrots, cabbage, and zucchini and simmer for 30 minutes or until all the veggies are tender.
Adjust seasonings and finish with fresh lime juice and a big handful of fresh chopped cilantro.

Learn What You Should Know About Beauty
Several different facets combine into the concept of what is beautiful. It includes personality and natural features. Confidence and the way you treat others is also part of it. The tips in this article will provide you with tips that can boost your confidence and make you feel beautiful.
If the consistency of your nail polish is off, try adding nail polish remover to fix the problem. Add only a small amount before shaking thoroughly. By doing this, you can get a couple of more uses out of the bottle.
If you are struggling with frizzy hair you can try putting a small amount of hand cream in your hands then running it through your hair. This will help the stray strands stick together and ultimately hold your hair together more as a cohesive whole making you look much more beautiful.
If you have fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead, you should look for cosmetics with light-reflecting particles. These products, which are just more matte than shimmery, can reflect light in a way that appears to make the fine lines simply disappear. You can use this trick all over your face, or just in your laugh lines.
Darkening very light eyelashes can really open up the eyes and make a noticeable impact on the eye color. Avoid using black mascara, which may appear way too harsh on light lashes and against lighter hair colors. Instead, you can have them tinted professionally or you can use brown pencil to line your eyes.
For smooth, streak-free results, exfoliate your skin before applying self-tanner. Dead, dry skin can cause self-tanner to absorb unevenly. This can result in streaks, splotches and areas of color that are darker than they should be. You can eliminate this problem by exfoliating your skin before you apply self-tanner. By removing dead skin cells, exfoliating can help ensure that yourself tanner absorbs evenly and gives you a beautiful, streak-free glow.
Renew nail polish with nail polish remover. If your favorite bottle of nail polish is getting a little thick, pour a few drops of nail polish remover into the bottle and shake. It will loosen the polish and thin it out, allowing you to get a few more coats out of it.
Use cocoa butter on stretchmarks and scars. Cocoa butter is a beauty treatment with roots in ancient times. It has long been known to normalize skin-tone, and to make your skin more resilient. Cocoa butter has a small price-tag, and is available almost anywhere you can buy lotions or creams.
Remove the arch from your eyebrows if you have a problem with dark circles under your eyes. The arch in your eyebrows can create a circular look around your eyes. This can exaggerate any dark circles you might already have. To remedy this, just tweeze your eyebrows so that they are straighter.
To get smaller pores, cut refined sugars from your diet. Eating large amounts of refined sugar enlarges your pores, and can also lead to breakouts. If you have a sweet tooth, try sating your cravings with natural sugars like the ones found in fruit. Your skin will definitely thank you for it!
If you have found a shampoo and conditioner that work well for you, then you should stick with them even if the brands may be different. It is best to choose those that have the same style intentions, however, such as getting both products for curl enhancers, color enhancers, etc., as the ingredients will be similar.
If you feel as though you are having one off day you shouldn’t fret. There are some aspects that are out of your control which will affect your daily appearance. One of the biggest variables is the weather and a humid day can wreck havoc on someone, especially a woman who has larger hair.
When applying make up you want to be sure that you do it in a gentle way. If you use strokes that are too strong you can have two problems. The first of these is that the abrasive nature of the strokes can damage your skin. Secondly, it leads to a lack of control and worse makeup.
Your attempt at self-tanning has created more of a streaky mess than a nice, healthy glow. Use plain old baking soda and put it on a washcloth (damp) or loofah sponge, and then use circular motions to buff away the orange color.
If you have your favorite perfume that you wish you could have the lotion to match, but just don’t want to have to pay the price for it, then make your own. All you need do is add a few drops of your favorite fragrance into any lotion that is scent-free. You can then rub it in and enjoy the resulting scent for the rest of your day.
Stay away from comparing yourself to other people when you are trying to improve your beauty. Celebrities have an entourage of people who make them look the way they do. Be happy about your body in its current situation.
Eating a nutrient-rich, balanced diet is one of the best things a person can do in order to look gorgeous. Eating right makes you feel your best. Nutrition sustains the body by fulfilling its needs. As a result of your efforts, you will not only feel better, but will also look better.
Moisturize your skin. Moisturizing your skin with lotion, moisturizer and oils keeps it supple and young-looking. The environment can wreak havoc on skin, especially in the colder climates and seasons. Skin can be dry and dull, but moisturizing nourishes and brightens skin as well as protects it from the elements.
If you’re using a cream on your face that costs a lot of money, you need to dry your face off all the way prior to applying it. If you have any moisture on your face when you are putting your cream on you will dilute your product.
As you have seen, there are many different factors that combine to create your beauty. Using these tips can help your natural beauty show through in one attractive package. Beauty is much more than physical appearance, it is your whole being.
