Food for the Soul
By Meggan Larson
I’ve really felt off track lately. It took me a while to bounce back from the craziness of getting my house ready for sale and then bouncing around between my mom’s and my sister’s until the house actually sold. It was a challenge to stay on track with my eating (to say the least!). I decided to get back to basics now that I’m back in my house and the chillier weather is upon us.
I went to the grocery store and I got myself all the fixings for…
…my homemade chicken soup! YUM!
It has practically no carbs because all it is is chicken, spices, and I like to throw in some celery. When I’m snacky, I heat up a mug of broth. For lunch, I eat soup and maybe a few garlic stuffed olives. Y’all, the bloating has gone completely down and I feel more like myself again! Hallelujah! It’s been simpler than I thought to get back on track, I really just had to be intentional about it. I even bought some Keto approved chocolates from Costco just to have something around when I get a craving. They are 1 net gram of carbs per huge piece and they’re individually wrapped! Boo-yeah!
It really helps to have things around to curb those cravings and keep you on the straight and narrow. For me it’s chicken soup, for you it might be something completely different! Just figure out what it is that makes staying on track easy for you and make sure it’s around (and plenty of it!).
If you need help finding yourself, help to figure out why you are struggling with weight, or anything else really, then I strongly urge you to check out this webinar coming up. It could be the difference between you staying in your comfort zone for the rest of your life or taking a giant leap of faith.

Meggan Larson is a wife, mom of three, and challenge overcomer! Being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and undergoing aggressive chemotherapy when her second born child was only three months old, gave Meggan an expected twist to her life. Dealing with pregnancy weight gain and the debilitating effects of chemotherapy, Meggan’s weight soared to over 228 pounds. Feeling humiliated with no desire to socialize, Meggan was desperate for a change. Shortly after losing 20 pounds with the Trim Healthy Mama program, Meggan found out she was pregnant with baby number three, which ended in an emergency C-section and unexpected hysterectomy. Despite the challenges she faced, Meggan has just celebrated her one year “trimiversary”, and her success of releasing just over 60 pounds! Meggan is confident that her success on plan is “doable” for anyone looking to gain back their health and wanting to live a trim and healthy lifestyle!
