This recipe combines some of the most healing foods in all the land. Garlic, ginger, bone broth, ghee, turmeric, lemon, sea salt & pepper. There are SO many articles that speak to why all these foods are SO medicinal so I won’t bore you or make you scroll for 2 days before you get to the recipe.
Just know that nourishing the body with all these healing foods can be ideal especially when you aren’t feeling your best or your worst. We make these during the cold & flu season or anytime one of us feels like something may be coming on.
This can also be eaten/drank for a meal! The protein and fat content are perfect to create a satiating and nourishing liquid meal.
Quick note on bone broth. I’ll have a whole blog post coming soon on this subject, but in the mean time, it is SO important to note that bone broth is one of the most nutrient-dense and nourishing foods we can consume. It is loaded with all the nutrients we need to live and function at our best.
This is how I feel when I travel (see picture above). Happy, content, and just so curious about what can happen next.
I’ve really been pondering why it is that I feel so good when I get to visit new places, even if I’ve been there before, I always feel a sense of awe, openness, and excitement. It’s a much different vibe then how I feel day in and day out.
After pondering for some time, I figured it out!
When we travel or experience new things, we remove ourselves from the every day patterns and habits that keep us in our self-limiting belief system. The roles we play, the day-to-day minutia, the endlessness of caring for other beings, oh and the list of “things” to accomplish… laundry, dishes, walking the dogs, picking up the kids. walking on eggshells around your 5 YO who may lose his shit at any moment… these are all things that continue to remind us of who we think we are. WE get triggered, react, and the cycle continues.
When we take...
When Fall comes it brings cooler weather inspiring us to warm up our dishes in the kitchen. This has to be one of my favorite cold-weather soups. Make a huge batch and nourish yourself for days!
I love adding in bone broth to add make the dish more nutrient dense. I’ll be posting my bone broth recipe soon too!
The main ingredient in this chili is of course…. GROUND BEEF! Now let’s just visit the importance of sourcing meat. If you’re here, I doubt you need education on the health and environmental issues conventional meat creates. This is why I ONLY eat grass fed AND grass finished beef. My absolute FAVORITE source of this conscious and clean meat is Arizona Grass Raised Beef Company.
I just love how many veggies and flavors this chili has. Living in New Mexico we add green or red chile to everything, so this dish was topped with a red chile sauce I made. If you don’t have access to red chile I suggest sprinkling some red pepper flakes or adding...
Winter calls for early bed times, fires, Netflix binges, snuggles, and soups. I honestly love how the change of seasons brings new wardrobes, different seasonal veggies, and the opportunity to change with them.
I LOVE soups! I could eat soups all day long, in my jammies, by the fire, with a good movie and maybe a glass of clean-crafted wine.
The base of each soup is so important. I stopped buying and using canned or boxed broths years ago when I discovered how fucking easy and cheaper it was to create my own.
Now, does it require just a bit more effort, yes of course… but the fact that my broth isn’t sitting in a weird chemical lined containers makes it all worth it!
I’ll be sharing soon my go-to bone broth recipe, but for now making your own veggie broth should be in your health arsenal! These mineral-rich liquids carry essential nutrients that our body’s crave.
What’s awesome too, is that you can make it with veggies that have seen better days...
