Recipes that Please!

Welcome to the part 3 of Simple Steps to Self-Care with Heidi.

Over the last two weeks, I've shared simple steps, and foods that you can incorporate into your life to help support your immune system. Today I'll share a few of my family favorites to get your started.

Chicken Soup A family tradition

Serves: 6


2 TBSPs grass-fed butter 1 tsp parsley

1 onion, diced 1 1/2 tsp thyme

2 cloves, minced garlic 1 1/2 tsp oregano

3 celery stalks, chopped 8 ounces, uncooked organic egg noodles

3 carrots, chopped

2 organic chicken breasts, diced sea salt and black pepper to taste

8 cups chicken bone broth


Sauté butter, onion garlic and celery in grass-fed butter

Add chicken, bone broth, and spices, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer until chicken is fully cooked, 30 minutes or more

Salt and pepper to taste and your ready to go!

Organic, gluten free dinner rolls are an excellent compliment to this dish!

(not an egg noodle fan? Swap out egg noodles for an organic blend brown rice instead)
