Portuguese Kale Soup

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar- free and most are dairy free. If you are new here WELCOME! I have been on this journey since October of 2017. Since going grain free I have noticed I feel better. My blood pressure is normal. I have lost weight, my family has lost weight. This is just my personal experience. There are so many preservatives in everything. So many people have allergies or health issues. Most people even kids are on medication.
Well, this is my line in the sand. I am taking back my health. On my blog, you will see that I make pretty much everything from scratch. There are very few items I can buy from the store and use. So if you are changing the way you eat. Welcome. Let’s do this lifestyle change together. My recipes are full of flavor and will leave you craving them. This is another family favorites. I have a 15-year-old son who requests this soup all the time. Serves 6
2 Tablespoons Olive oil

2 Med. Potatoes

2 Med. Onions (chopped)
