Mung Soup

20200123_131847In honor of what category gets the most LIKES, I am posting a new KETO Soup recipe inspired by friends in Mexico. Once a week I work in the kitchen at a local orphanage with Corina, the authentic cook who measures nothing! This chicken soup recipe will morph into several different dishes. One of my other instructors for Chinese cuisine is a young local artist named Sacha who turned me onto the MUNG BEAN STRINGS – which morph into Italian, German, and Mexican dishes.  With ZERO calories, fat and sugar, these MUNG BEAN noodles are perfect for KETO or Plant based enthusiasts.  A HUGE SHOUT OUT of THANKS to all who are following “Living Abroad” !!! What a thrill as a writer to be followed by 500 other scribblers from around the globe. Living Abroad in Mexico I get to read and connect with fascinating people worldwide, and that is BIG FUN for me! MUNG BEAN nutrition:  Low Carb Mung Bean Threads

1 tsp minced garlic ( optional) 1 Tbls MOLE

  1. When I do keto, I still have inflammation in my ankles as well. In CARN and my ankles are normal size. When I do carnivore, ALL inflammation goes away. The first 5-6 days of eating carnivore, I peed my brains out!!!! I lost 9.6 lbs of water weight in five days, and the swelling in my ankles went away. It was awesome! Carnivore is the way to eat for me. Check out carnuvore, limit cheese.
