Fish Soup With Dill Recipe (Slow Cooker)

It's 2018 and I like most, am looking for ways to be healthier this year. Loom knitting can be a sedentary job so I'm trying to eat healthier and get on my spin bike a little more often. I'm doing a 30-day plant rich/Mediterranean diet and horrors, giving up candy. Candy is my addiction and I'm not a person that can just eat one piece. Each year I give up an unhealthy food, 2 years ago it was soda, last year it was hot peppers (that was hard but they tear up my stomach). I can only commit to 30 days without candy but I feel it was a start. I'm hoping that after the month, it will just continue. We shall see!

This soup was an experiment. I was looking for something different, plant-based and included healthy protein. What I came up with was an easy, fresh tasting, and best of all, healthy recipe.
