Maria’s Holistic Chicken Soup
I designed this nutrient-dense soup for my nutrition clients. It is very easy to make and tastes delicious. The main cause of decreased energy levels is an improperly functioning digestion system. This dish is perfect for people with the digestive problem such as leaky gut, the soup is a pre-digested food once prepared. If you are intolerant of anything on this list simply omit it. Be sure to source all organic ingredients.
