Is Chicken Soup Healthy
Packed full of nutrients from the vegetables and bone broth, this chicken soup recipe is extremely healthy. As a family, this is also our go to recipe if someone has a cold and isn’t feeling well.
1. Bone Broth: The chicken is cooked and then removed from the bone before putting the bones back in the water to simmer for at least an hour. Bone broth is packed full of nutrients like protein. Bone broth is good for your gut and your joints.

3. Veggies: We all need more of these powerhouse vitamin packed vegetables in our meals. Soups are an easy way to get the nutrition your body needs!
