“Chicken soup is one of the most nourishing meals you can cook for yourself and your loved ones. There’s a reason you are called to it when sick or healing… it soothes a chilled body, an upset stomach, a cold and, when working with your autoimmune condition, it should be a staple!
Why is that so?
When made properly, a homemade chicken stock (the liquid base of your soup) contains gelatin & collagen from the chicken bones used (be sure to always source a clean and healthy chicken). Gelatin contains amino acids and have many healing qualities. They help break up mucous, support blood sugar regulation, repair tissue, boost immunity and can be calming for the nervous system. Plus, the broth is hydrating. Chicken soup is easily digestible, sits well on an irritated digestive system, and improves gut health due to it’s repairing qualities. The classic ingredients in a chicken soup include carrots, celery and onion, all of which contain their own beneficial characteristics such as being antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine.”
