Made this immune boosting, muscle building, flu-fighting soup today! I’ve nicknamed it “Vampire Soup” because of the large amounts of garlic, which is also known as “Russian Antibiotics” for its impressive antibacterial properties. With flu season up in some states over 700+%, this is with having on hand and a must try if you or your family feel run-down or under the weather.
As a Master Nutritionist, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate the Earth’s healthiest edibles into my dishes… I think this soup takes home the trophy for its delicious, robust flavors, healthy properties and how EASY it is to make at home! You must try!
Simply lightly pan sear organic, hormone-free chicken breast in organic coconut oil. Do not overcook or burn the chicken because it will get very dry. Then add fresh spinach, diced raw mushrooms, shredded purple cabbage, minced green onions, diced purple potatoes, diced sweet onion, a dash of sea salt, cracked peppercorns and lots of garlic (more the merrier) to the organic chicken bone broth. Cook LOW and SLOW in a crockpot for 2-3 hours… And enjoy! Be sure to make extra for easy and healthy lunches! Yummmm!
This dish is bursting with delicious flavors but is also packed with powerful ANTIOXIDANTS to fight off free radicals and other bacteria. The addition of fresh garlic also nicknamed the “Russian Antibiotic” for its antibacterial properties, and sweet onion, will not only scare off a vampire but also the common cold and flu as well! The mushrooms are actually known cancer-fighters and immunity supporters. The purple potatoes are high in flavonoids thanks to their unique color and much lower on the glycemic index— meaning they won’t spike your blood sugar the way regular white potatoes will. The fresh spinach is amazing for their anti-cancer benefits as well as added fiber for proper digestion. The purple cabbage is known for the incredible ability to lower blood pressure and cholesterol— plus, when cooked become somewhat noodle-like. Lastly, the organic chicken bone broth boasts an incredible list of health benefits that include fighting autoimmune disease, thyroid health, skin, and collagen boating properties and also flushed toxins. Overall, this is one HEALTHY soup and a MUST during flu season!
NOTE: Feel free to add anything you like to this healthy homemade soup. I’ve added bell peppers, cilantro, chives, broccoli, zucchini and even almond slices in past recipes… Anything but the kitchen sink as they say!
I hope you enjoy my friends and stay healthy this flu season!
Cheers to a happy and healthy winter!
