You are Souppp-er...Nourishing & Healing Broth

You are Souppp-er...Nourishing & Healing Broth

The holidays are upon us and that usually means lots of eating and drinking. Unfortunately that also usually involves conversations around “not indulging too much”. This year ditch the diet culture and give your body some extra support. We’ve come up with two broth recipes for you to add to your routine. Both of these nutrient-dense broths are packed with minerals, antioxidants and spices. We don’t suggest skipping meals, so if you find yourself feeling off from the night before, grab a cup of this sipping broth and pair it with a juice. You’ll give your body a break from digestion without skipping on the nutrients. 


The first recipe is for the plant-based eaters out there, a Nourishing Vegan Broth. This broth is packed to the brim with veggies. For some added flavour and depth, we used shiitake mushrooms, soy sauce and miso. This recipe is guaranteed to be a new kitchen staple. 


The next recipe is our Healing Bone Broth. This broth uses marrow bones which contain abundant amounts of collagen, healing fats, and glucosamine, a compound that helps reduce inflammation. This broth is your best bet to restore your gut and maybe even cure a hangover.

This holiday season we encourage you to focus on adding healing foods to your diet, instead of taking food groups out. The holidays are meant to be a time of bliss, not stress, and that starts with supporting your body!


As always, we are here to answer any questions that might come up in your cooking process. If you try either of these recipes let us know what you think.
