Tomato Basil Soup & Mediterranean Grilled Cheese
Ask and you shall receive! 

I'm not one to blog a lot about food, at least when it comes to giving out recipes.  I'm that type of person that if I go to a blog for a recipe, I just really want to grab the recipe and be on my way. So I'm going to make this short and sweet for y'all! 

I recently shared on social media pics of homemade tomato basil soup and Mediterranean grilled cheese. It garnered quite the attention and had some asking for the recipe. you go! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 

I'd love to hear what you think in the comments below! And if you're looking for more healthy recipes and meal plans, I invite you to check out my Intro to Healthy Eating mini-course.  It's chock-full of goodies!
