When the temperatures reach an arctic level, I prefer to enjoy winter from inside my home.

This homemade stew is the perfect end to a chilly day. The best part? Throw it all in your crock pot for an effortless meal! A nutritious blend of protein, vegetables, and healthy carbs to keep you full. Healthy and hearty, this delicious soup will warm you from the inside out.

As a bonus, this stew is also dairy-free, gluten-free, and low-fodmap!
