Well here I am about to talk about the weather again, and how it relates to what I’m in the mood to eat 😂

But that’s just the way it works, right? I mean, sure there’s sometimes where we crave warm soups in the middle of summer, or a bright and refreshing green juice during a deep mid-winter freeze, but for the most part the seasons really do sort of steer our dinner cravings.

And as we all know, even though it’s April most of us are still battling winter weather.

I just returned from a long weekend in Wisconsin and Minnesota and I can definitely testify that they are for sure still tromping around in the snow. And while it has started warming up a little in Seattle, even here the gray skies and rain have yet to lift.

Which, IMHO, is a perfectly good reason to schedule this creamy dairy free chicken and cauliflower rice soup into your meal plan for this week 💯

So techinically, it’s spring, right? But technically doesn’t mean much when it’s been cold, gray and raining for the past 3 weeks 🙄. I mean, you’d think mama nay nay would be just as ready as us to see the sunshine and the flowers, but I guess for now she has other plans.

But even if the sun isn’t shining, I’m going to pretend that it is by drinking all of these blood orange sunshine ginger mango smoothies. Because they are full of all the good fruit that’s in season right now, and pretty much = sunshine in a glass.

Which, second to actual sunshine is not a bad option.

I am pretty sure Seattle is confused about what season it’s supposed to be (SPRING, SEATTLE. IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SPRING!). Because the trees are blooming and the crocuses and daffodils have sprung up from their earthly depths but it was SNOWING last Friday, you guys. SNOWING. Like big wet flakes falling to the ground for at least two hours 🙄 I know we’re not the only one’s but it just makes me wanna say COME ON ALREADY.

(Very ready for sun over here 🙋🏼)

So while at first I thought I might be a little too far past the cold weather season to share this recipe for the best paleo bean free chili, after this recent flash back to winter-like weather that we’ve been having around here I realized that no, it’s definitely not too late. In fact, this chili recipe is probably needed now more than ever.
