I believe firmly in the healing power of food.

The Greek physician Hippocrates said it best, “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.”

If you’re feeling under the weather or are looking for a healing anti-inflammatory soup that’s great for your immune system, you’ll love this recipe! It’s packed with garlic, which is anti-inflammatory, full of antioxidants and vitamins, and it acts like a natural antibiotic. Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant best known for fighting inflammation. According to Anya Guy, a Mayo Clinic dietitian, Turmeric has natural anti-inflammatory compounds called curcuminoids, and these curcuminoids have been associated with a positive effect on various diseases.” Onions are rich in antioxidants, particularly Quercetin, a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that helps your body fight free radical damage. Onions also support your digestion and gut health because they are rich in inulin, a prebiotic-like fiber.

Healing Soup Ingredients:

  • Optional: 1 lb of shredded hormone and antibiotic-free chicken (ground, grass-fed beef, or turkey)
  • 8 cups of bone broth
  • 1-2 cups each of chopped carrots and celery
  • 1 large onion, chopped 
  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced 
  • 1 tbsp Herbs de Provence 
  • 1/2 tbsp sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp of white pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp of onion powder
  • 1 tbsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp of basil 
  • 1/2 tsp of sage
  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric 


If you’re adding protein, season the beef until brown, and then add all ingredients to a soup pot or crockpot. I prefer to put all the ingredients in a crockpot for 6-10 hours on low for a richer flavor. 

This recipe can also be done in an Instant Pot on the soup setting on high for about 10 minutes or in a stockpot on the stove for 15-20 minutes.
