I’ve been making loads of soup over the past few months. Why? Because soup is a nutritional powerhouse that is simple to make and super tasty. What a fabulous way to ensure you are getting a healthy variety of fresh veggies and also consuming healing bone broth! Yay for soup!
This holds especially true if you’re struggling to get veggies into your child’s diet (or your own for that matter). Some weeks are busier than others but I my aim is to always have a blended soup on hand. Each meal, I mix homemade soup with my children’s protein to ensure they’re getting ample amount of veggies, bone broth and healthy fats. I often add some tablespoons of grass fed collagen and a good blob of coconut oil before blending.
I tend to make blended soups nice and thick and that makes it incredibly easy to incorporate into meals. When added to meats, the soup acts as a thick creamy sauce. My kids find it easy to eat their “soup” this way and I love that they’re getting a ton of needed nutrients for their growing bodies.
Here’s a recipe that sees heavy rotation in our house. Feel free to add more water/bone broth to create a thinner consistency.
No matter how you enjoy this soup, sit back and feel good about your choice!
