adding a little bit of ✨ spice ✨ to keep things balanced. If you change a few things about the classic combo you can make it into a really healthy balanced meal. Try adding chicken and greens to your grilled cheese on multigrain bread - and keep the soup light by skipping the heavy cream. Trust me it’s so good 🤝 #tomatosoup #tomatosouprecipe #grilledcheese #bestgrilledcheese #fyp #easyrecipe #healthyrecipe #nutrition #atx #atxdietitian #atxnutrition #balancedmeals #comfortfood #healthycomfortfood
