Recipe: Speedy Recovery Beef and Mushroom Soup
There’s a South American proverb that “A good broth will resurrect the dead.” While that may not be literally the case, bone broth is one of the best things to give someone who is sick or recovering, since it helps boost the immune system to fight sickness, is rich in minerals, and has the building blocks needed for our body to repair its own gut lining (and 80% of the immune system is in the gut). I recently made this soup for a family friend who was recovering from surgery. When I was asked to make a meal for her, the first thing that popped into my head was a soup with a gut-healing, mineral-rich bone broth as the base.
Recipe: Comforting Homemade Chicken Soup
Alisa from Paleo in PDX had an amazing chicken soup recipe recently, and it inspired me to post my chicken soup recipe that The Ukrainian taught me. This soup is a staple meal in our household, and is loved by two out of three family members*. It’s especially good this time of year when the days are short and grey and nothing sounds better than curling up on the couch with a good book and a fuzzy blanket. And if you’ve got a sickie in the house, make this for them and I’m sure they will perk up soon!
