Anybody else make detox veggie soup? I usually grab all the veggies in the fridge that I have, simmer them in broth with spices until soft and then blend until smooth. Then I add Turmeric and collagen powder for a little extra somethin’ somethin’. Of course, I also have veggies in the fridge that agree with my body (because that’s the most important) so make sure you use veggies that agree with yours. :) . #Repost @tastythin with @get_repost

Last day at work!
Can't believe I'll be hanging up the ol' calculator at my accounting job. Crazy where life takes you, graduated University in 2013 ⏩ fast forward 5 years and I’m quitting to be a full-time athlete. Very excited for new opportunities!
Thanks @strawhouse for everything, best job I’ve ever had.
Forgive me while I get all “Sciencey” about Chicken Broth being awesome for preventing and alleviating cold symptoms. DID YOU KNOW that a 2012 study published in the American Journal of Therapeutics suggested that a compound called carnosine, which is found in sources like chicken soup and chicken breast, helps inhibit the proinflammatory conditions typically associated with the initial stages of viral infections and prevent the development of the common cold.(1)
Annnnd, a 2000 study published in CHEST suggested that the mild anti-inflammatory effect created by chicken soup could be one of the reasons behind the soup’s ability to reduce symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections like the common cold. Typically, when an individual comes down with a cold, the body responds with inflammation in the upper respiratory tract. The inflammatory response signals white blood cells (WBCs) to migrate to the region (usually the upper respiratory tract) and may contribute to commonly encountered cold symptoms, such as stuffy noses.
When the researchers measured the ability of the WBCs to migrate through a filter from one side of a chamber to the other side, they found that fewer cells migrated to the other side of the chamber in the presence of chicken soup. As a result, the scientists of the study proposed that some ingredient in the soup may be responsible for slowing or blocking the migration of these WBCs to the upper respiratory tract, and thus, aid in relieving cold symptoms.

Time to make Cheese and Spinach Panade!
What the heck is a Panade anyway?
Well, when I was a wee kiddo, my Gramms used to make her "Panada" every once in awhile when we had large family dinners – mostly because it is so filling and so tasty. In essence, a panade is kind of a cross between French Onion Soup and bread pudding and, in the cooler months, you simply can’t go wrong with it – especially if you’re clever and you make it in the slow cooker. Gramms would be spinning in her grave at the thought of slow cooker panade, but this is the age of modern convenience and little spare time, so I do what I gotta do (spoken in my best Rocky Balboa voice)! I usually make most of it the night before and throw it in crock pot before I leave for work.
Here’s what you’ll need:
4 cups of Wild Moon’s Organic Chicken Broth or Multi Broth (I prefer the multi, but both work)
A loaf of bread (day old is good, two days old is better). 3 Tablespoons of pure EVOO (I like the Wild Mushroom and Sage infusion from @oliveoilbc in Vernon for this recipe)
Either 1 lb of pork sausage OR 1 lb of garlic sausage (I look for the ones that have the least, if any, preservatives in them. Buying them local is always a great idea too)
4 cups spinach
2 cloves of chopped garlic
¼ cup of fresh Cilantro (chopped up) or, if you don’t like Cilantro, try fresh Thyme or even fresh parsley works
1 can of organic cannellini beans. Drained AND rinsed…or ewww…
3 cups of shredded mozza (or other white cheese that you like. I also use fresh parmesan for this recipe and it’s also tasty yum)
Toast the bread using the broil setting in your oven. Be careful, it can burn easily so keep an eye on it. Flip half way to toast equally. Once it’s toasted, cut it in to cubes.
Rip the spinach into bite-sized pieces.
Layer everything equally (leaving out 1 cup of cheese) into the slow cooker:
Bread, then spinach, then beans, then cheese. Repeat until it is all used up (except that cup of cheese).
Then pour the broth over the entire thing.
Set it to low and go about your day! I usually let it cook 8 hours, but you can also do it on high for 4 – 6. Melt the remaining cheese on top!

Why Bone Broth is good for our blood.0
. #Repost @eat_alive_and_thrive with @get_repost
It seems we are so plaqued with more and more illnesses, adrenal issues, gut issues, and horrible immune systems etc.
We are not feeding our bodies the healing and tonifying nutrient dense food it needs.
We used to take time to make healthy meals.
Back in the day we would simmer bones to make chicken soup or stews. We would eat was was growing in the garden.
Nowadays its fast food, people working too much, following diet trends that actually deplete us. We are so depleted and so is our blood. Our blood is our vital essence of the body!!
It is the mother of Qi and is created by the Spleen from the foods we eat.
Health Benefits of Bone Broth:
Builds Blood + Repairs Cellular Damage
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, blood is an essential fluid. This means that without blood, your body will not be able to perform its usual functions. When blood is used throughout the day, it has to be replenished so you don’t become blood deficient.
Stress, exercise, work, and studying are just a few ways that your body uses blood. Bone Marrow is where the body makes both red and white blood cells.
By using bones filled with rich marrow, we are able to extract this property and infuse it into our own cells. By drinking nutritious bone broth, you are giving your body what it needs to heal itself.
This mug is a warming and nourishing cup of @organicbonebroth topped some cilantro and scallions.
Its the season to truly feed your vital Qi with warming foods.
Yussss! What Heather said!
That's right, more SOUP!!! It is Fall and my soup obsession has officially kicked into full gear! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did you know that soup has so many incredible benefits for your digestion and overall health? Unfortunately, most store-bought, canned or packaged soups do not have the same health benefits. Soups made at home with whole ingredients like bone broth and whole vegetables is a way to boost your immune system, nourish your skin, improve digestion and is an easy way to sneak in extra vegetables through pureeing the base!
Go take a look at my Tortilla-less soup https://www.heatherwoodruffnutrition.com/healing-tortilla-less-soup the roasted tomatoes in this soup give it the most amazing flavour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's your favourite go-to soups? Let me know in the comments. I'd love to add some new ones to my recipe book!
