“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” ~ William Cullen Bryant
I love fall, and sweaters and boots. Living in California we don’t really have a fall, but luckily our grown children live in Utah and NYC so we visit frequently and enjoy the amazing fall colors, cooler temperature and delicious fall foods. Speaking of fall foods, I am putting many of my nutritious, comforting soups right here in one place for you.
Soup is one of the healthiest food options in my humble opinion. My recipes are warm, filling, delicious, nutrient dense and packed with veggies. I set aside a Saturday every fall to make four or five batches of soup and freeze them for use all fall/winter long. Trust me when I tell you that spending a day making soup is so worth the months of reward! Pull the soup out of the freezer, make a salad and voila! A fast healthy meal in minutes!
And It All Begins with Broth:
Bone broth is nutrient dense and is the base for many of my soups. It contains vitamins and minerals that are easily absorbed by the body including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulfur chondroitin, glucosamine, and a variety of trace minerals. Bone broth is rich in gelatin which supports healthy digestion. Make it after roasting a chicken to drink as is, or use to make soups or risotto! Recipe here. Of course you can use store bought broth in all these recipes…but I recommend the homemade of course.
