  1. Great recipe. Very tasty. I do have a dilemma in which my macros didn’t come up the same as yours. This makes 7 servings (cups)? I got: Calories, 276, Net Carbs 1g, Protein 10g, and Fat 25g.

    1. You are right! My macros are way off! I don’t know how it’s almost like I doubled them. I will make the necessary corrections. Thank you for pointing this out!

    2. I went back and checked my ingredients that I entered on MyFitnessPal for this recipe and figured out what went wrong with the macros. I had selected a wrong measurement for the cheese so it added a lot of extra calories and I also selected a broth that had a lot of calories and carbs. I have readjusted them with the correct macros.
