Detox soup

by

As the seasons change and the climate gets colder we can experience certain changes in our metabolism. This includes being affected by certain diseases such as the flu and the common cold, or just an overall feeling of more tiredness. As these symptoms usually come about more during the winter time, it is important for us to react as soon as we suspect an illness coming on. This can be done by taking good care of our bodies and by feeding them with the right stuff.

One of the most important foods for the immune system is chicken broth. Chicken broth is known for its many detoxifying benefits. It contains the vitamins B3, B6 and B5 that promote healthy skin, hair and also overall gut health. This is the perfect warm and cozy meal to enjoy when you feel a little sick or just need a good pick me up.

  • One whole organic chicken
  • One onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 5 potatoes
