Print

Chicken soup might just be one of the most delicious and light soups out there, but imagine one that is so easy to make using a crockpot? Throw all ingredients and let it cook while you keep yourself busy, and you’ll soon be able to enjoy an irresistibly warm and satisfying meal. And here is the best part: it is packed with antioxidants, helping alleviate any pains and soothing your gut!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This hearty soup features tender shreds of chicken slowly simmered for 6 hours with onion, garlic, lemon, and dark leafy kale -- a flavor- and nutrient-boosted version of a family favorite. If you don't have a lot of time during the day, the slow-cooker might become your new best friend in the kitchen!

NOTE: Reduce the amount of olive oil for sauteing from 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) to just 2 Tbsp and save nearly 80 calories and more than 9 grams of total fat per serving.

Founder's story:

"My father had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my mom was
managing her hypothyroid, and my best friend was struggling with painful IBS.
I went online to search for food-based and natural solutions that could help
them heal. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and left me more confused. I thought, ‘There must be an easier way to discover solutions for various ailments from real experts and from people who had done it themselves. So I decided to build a resource—a platform for food as medicine solutions
for all your health needs. And I decided to take the wisdom from this community to create real food based products that heal.
