Chicken and Avocado Soup - Healing and Eating

This chicken and avocado soup is a really easy variation of my normal paleo friendly chicken soup. It was actually my husband’s idea, and it looked so pretty and delicious I decided to post it for you guys. I had some leftover chicken soup in the fridge, which made it really simple to throw in some avocado, cilantro, and lime juice and have an instant dinner. It literally took me five minutes total. Shout out to all my meal preppers! This recipe is for you.
