Ok guys, this is my very last day of my Whole30 journey. I will be posting all of my thoughts on it over on my Whole30 Diary, but today I really wanted to share this recipe with you for Bone Broth and Greens Soup.

I actually got this idea from my acupuncturist ( I LOVE ACCUPUNCTURE). I have noticed that while on Whole30 my digestive system has been kind of upset and definitely not feeling like itself. I have been doubling up on my Aloe Vera and now I am trying the natural remedy of Bone Broth. Because the broth is cooked for sooooo long, the bones really cook down and the broth is filled with collagen- which is healing to the gut. I found my chicken Bone Broth in the freezer section at my grocery store

But I don’t know if I am a sit down with a mug of hot bone broth kind of girl? (Do any of you do that?) So I followed my acupuncturists directions and sautéed some garlic and kale in olive oil and then pureed it with the bone broth and then reheated it all. SOOOOOO good. And I am not kidding, one day of sipping this has made quite a difference in how my stomach feels. And wait for it…… Pete, Pia and Coco thought it was as good as I did. So to be clear- my 7 and 9 year old girls slurped down mugs of this!

I thought I would share this with you because sometimes we all need a bit of a reset with our tummy. It is also really filling, so if you were just trying to detox from a weekend of heavy drinking and eating or are recovering from a cold or any other situation where you want to feel a little better or leaner- this Bone Broth and Greens Soup is where it’s at!!!
