Soup is back on the menu for me, my braces have just been adjusted again so enter very sore mouth and limited eating ability.  This soup is incredible and primal!
Here's a picture of my braces! 5 months and they are looking very straight, very exciting and worth the pain that I've gone through and am currently going through, I still have 9 months to go, the bottom have a wee way to go. 


  1. Yum, the soup looks delish! And what a difference in your upper teeth, can really see the change.

  2. The soup is truly delish! I know I can't believe how incredibly fast they have moved :)

  3. So you think 200ml of coconut cream would be as nice as normal cream?

  4. Hi Cath, yep the coconut cream would be just as nice as normal cream, possibly even nicer!
