CI tortilla soup (made

Here is the wonderful "Cooks Illustrated" tortilla soup recipe (minus the tortillas). I've added servings of broccoli, wine, black beans (in the recipe), and fresh fruit to make it "Zoned."

The "eat this with" is to accompany each PORTION of soup. So you'd eat 1/9 of this soup with 5oz broccoli, 4oz wine, etc (i.e. you don't need to eat 1/9th of 4oz of wine, 1/9th of 3-4 macadamia nuts). Enjoy!

Chicken with Marjoram in a sour cream tomato broth

I found this recipe a LONG time ago, but lost the original name and author of the dish. Either way, it's one of my favorites!

Primal Nutella

I typed up the recipe from a youtube video of a woman who made this. This is definitely not as sweet as the real thing, but its a good substitute for it while you're on a low-carb diet.

The youtube video is here:

Ginger Nut Oatmeal cookies

This recipe is a combination of 2 cookie recipes from Cooks Illustrated (The ginger oatmeal cookies and the nut oatmeal cookies). They offer low-fat dessert options in their magazines, but this isn't one here (But it's a nice treat with a lot of fiber and oats!)
