PALEO WHOLE30 ANTI-VIRAL CHICKEN SOUP
I woke up this morning with an annoying and persistent sinus cold. All I could think about was making a chicken soup with big flavour and antiviral components. Chicken soup is a comfort food. I believe we subconsciously crave and devour comfort food because it provides us a sense of wellbeing, safety, and pleasant childhood memories of home cooking.
RECIPE NUTRITIONAL VALUE: This soup contains the ingredients of lemon, garlic, onion, turmeric, and fresh ginger. All of these ingredients possess antiviral properties, as well as other important nutrients. Add to these antiviral ingredients is homemade, fresh bone broth!
Bone broth helps to heal and support our immune system. It is rich in minerals that our body can easily absorb. This includes chicken, beef, fish, and lamb bone broth.
2. Bone broth helps fight infections. It fights the common cold and flu by inhibiting viruses.
3. Bone broth helps fight gut inflammation. It contains collagen and L-glutamine that aid in healing our gut lining. This reduces intestinal inflammation, thus helping to reduce leaky gut syndrome and food allergies.
4. Bone broth helps in the growth and repair of bones. Bone formation requires an adequate and constant supply of nutrients such as calcium, protein, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin D, potassium, zinc, manganese, copper, boron, iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, and the B vitamins.
5. Bone broth helps in weight loss. Research shows that obese people have more Firmicutes bacteria and fewer Bacteroidetes in their digestive tracts. Firmicutes bacteria cause more extraction of calories from food. As a result, a higher ratio of Firmicutes is a marker of obesity. A healthy gut reduces Firmicutes bacteria, aiding in weight loss. Eating broth before a meal also promotes a full stomach, thereby aiding in the reduction of food consumed overall. Bone broth keeps the body hydrated. Bone broth with vegetables adds electrolytes and carbohydrates that keep the body hydrated.
7. Bone broth helps to reduce inflammation and joint pain. Bone broth stimulates muscle protein synthesis, providing arthritis and joint pain relief, strengthening nails, protecting cells, lowering blood sugar, improving sleep, regulating insulin, and slowing down the aging process.
8. Bone Broth helps calm the body. It contains an amino acid called glycine which soothes the body and promotes better sleep.
9. Bone broth with its collagen and gelatin, aids in keeping your skin subtle, your hair growing, and nails strong.
RECIPE TASTE PROFILE: The predominant taste sensation in this soup is tanginess due to the addition of fresh lemon juice at the end of the simmering process. The bone broth also offers loads of umami — roundness and depth of flavour.
DIRTY-BIRDY WINE PARTNER (For Those Maintaining A Paleo or Whole30 Lifestyle): With the predominant taste sensation being tanginess, you’ll need a wine with good acidity to match. When you create harmony with similar taste sensations, the experience of the food and wine together is heightened. White wines that work nicely are Sauvignon Blanc, Vinho Verde, bone dry Riesling, Pinot Grigio. If you prefer to sip red, go with Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is meant to be chilled for at least a half-hour in the refrigerator. As a result, the wine’s acidity will match the lemon tanginess, and the wine’s chill factor will nicely offset the heat of the soup.
