Apple & Sweet Potato Soup

whole30 soup, paleo, gluten free, sweet potato, healthy soup

One of the keys to a successful Whole30 is to be prepared.  Well, this recipe came from a time when I was quite unprepared.  I went to my parent's house for the afternoon and didn't pack anything for lunch.  They always have healthy ingredients around, so I knew I could figure something out!  I'm still hanging onto this nasty winter cold, so soup sounded perfect.  I had it warm but it's also good cold!  The apple gives the perfect touch of sweet to the savory broth.  Enjoy!
