Paleo Italian Wedding Soup with Meatball Recipe
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs or turkey legs, cut into bite size pieces. You can use pork too if you prefer.
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
3 cups water
4 oz cream cheese, softened (or 1/2 stick butter)
1 egg yolk, beaten with a pinch of salt and pepper. You can add a bit of milk instead of the egg yolk if needed.
(I like to use almond milk.)
In a large pot over medium heat, bring the chicken stock and water to boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer and cook until chicken is cooked through.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly. While chicken is cooling, beat together cream cheese and egg yolk in a bowl until smooth. Add chicken back to pot along with the hot liquid, stir well then serve immediately!
Note: If you are not using coconut milk for your keto Italian Wedding Soup recipe, substitute half of the cream cheese with heavy whipping cream.

The following is a guest post by A. Brown.

Over the last decade there are several major changes that have taken place in my life, things that I could never have imagined in my youth and that have shaped me into who I am now. The first one was moving out of my parents’ house, which at the time felt like it was going to be permanent.
And it was permanent, just not in the way I expected as I ended up moving back in with them not too long ago. This was followed by a job change. Then another one. And another one. And then another one. And then the most recent one for now, which I am still in the process of figuring out.
Sure it sounds like I’m just leading a normal life with a bunch of job changes, but what really changed everything was having my son Jacob. It’s not that I didn’t want to be a parent, it’s that I wasn’t ready to become one.
I was only 23 when I had him. In fact, that’s part of why I am writing this as a guest post for Nick here on his website. When I first found out I was pregnant, I was scared. Scared of how I would support this child while still not having much in my savings, let alone a college fund started for him.
So what did I do?
I freaked out obviously and then started to research different things that would help me cope with this new life that was bestowed upon me.
My conclusion was that I could do this if I wanted to, and I had to. It was me, myself, and I now.
Always remember that you can do anything you set your mind to.
So after all of the worrying, stressing, and freaking out about my new path in life, everything started to fall into place. I started to feel better mentally about everything and the happiness took over from there.
The second I saw my son for the first time, all of that worry and stress just melted away. He was so cute and so happy! It just felt right. Of course, I still had to get a job. But what I realized was that things happen for a reason. Everything that I had done up to that point was to prepare me to be a good parent and provide for my son.
I worked really hard for the next few years while still trying to keep my head on straight and enjoy every moment with my son. And now here we are, he is in school and I have more time on my hands than I know what to do with.
So that’s why I turned to blogging. It’s not something that I ever thought I would do, but then again having a kid wasn’t either. So here I am writing this post on how I make keto Italian wedding soup, because if you can survive and prosper while raising a child, then you can make anything you set your mind to.
