Waking up on a chilly Autumn or Winter day in the Northeast makes me, well, cold. And to keep myself warm during these cooler months, I tend to eat in the seasonal pattern so that warmer foods will dominate my plate and keep me warm.
One of my favorite things to eat (aside from when I get a cold or am sick) is chicken soup, however I rarely have hours to sit and let it simmer on the stove. One of my mentors, Andrea Beaman, taught me the true benefits of making homemade bone stock (the recipe is HERE) which is incredibly nourishing for the body especially during times of illness, stress or exhaustion.
To make the worlds collide, I began to play around with my slow cooker so I could get the healthy benefits of a slow cooked soup without all the attention that is necessary to keep something going on the stove. Now, if you don’t have a slow cooker or crock pot, go get one ASAP. You have no idea what you’re missing out on.
A slow cooker or crock pot is at the top of my ‘must have’ list for gluten-free kitchen supplies.
Warming, easy and seriously some incredible soup, make sure to share this with your friends!!!
