Chicken Soup Is Best!
Although chicken noodle soup is the go-to soup when we feel ill, there is a vast difference between store-bought soup and homemade. Nearly all store-bought soup is overly processed and/or laden with preservatives. It really doesn’t do much except fill us up.
On the other hand, All-Natural Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is nutrient-rich and helps to alleviate the flu and cold symptoms and help our overall health. I won’t bore you with all of the reasons why but if you are interested, you can search the web and find numerous health benefits.
Another fabulous recipe you might like is Old-Fashioned Vegetable Soup. It’s also preservative-free and naturally gluten-free and it is one of our most popular posts.
Nearly all soup recipes begin with broth as its base. Homemade broth is a wonderful source of vitamins and minerals and contains natural gelatin.
It’s ridiculously easy to make homemade chicken broth. Simply place an (organic, free-range, and hormone-free) chicken (with bones) into a stockpot or crockpot. Cover the meat with a generous amount of water. Add a teaspoon of sea salt and pepper, garlic, and onion, and let it cook low and slow. (I cook mine in the crockpot overnight). When fully cooked, remove the meat. You now have the most amazing chicken broth!

Serve It Up!
Sometimes I serve the soup with whole-grain gluten-free crackers and a side salad such as a Strawberry Spinach Salad, a Go Green Salad, or an Autumn Harvest Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing.
I am allergic to garlic, onions, and pepper and therefore I must leave them out of my All-Natural Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. That’s why you can’t see them in any of my photos within this post. 🙁
