Your gastrointestinal system plays a significant role in your overall health. After all, it’s home to about 80% of your immune system, and gut health problems like leaky gut syndrome have been linked to many inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.

Your microbiome, the trillions of bacteria in your gut, regulates not only your digestion but also, in part, your hormones, brain, and genetic expression. And microbiome imbalances like candida overgrowth and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) can lead to imbalances throughout your body.

These microbiomes need to be fueled with healing recipes like this protein-rich bone broth recipe that’s perfect for a chilly weeknight on the couch:

Nourishing Chicken Zoodle Bone Broth Soup

Ingredients for the bone broth

Whole free-range chicken

6 cloves garlic

1 onion

1 inch of ginger root

Ingredients for the soup

4 to 6 cups organic chicken broth

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 to 2 cups chopped onions

1 to 2 cups chopped carrots

3 to 4 small to medium zucchinis

2 cups shredded organic chicken

2 to 3 garlic cloves, crushed or minced

Himalayan sea salt to taste.

Preparation

Bone Broth

Rinse the chicken, and place it in the pot.

Fill your pot three-quarters full with water, and add the herbs and vegetables.

Cook on medium-high until bubbling, then reduce heat to low and allow to simmer, covered, for at least 8 hours.

Allow to cool, then pour stock through a strainer and transfer to Mason jars to store in the fridge.

Soup

1. Sauté the onions and carrots in coconut oil until onions are soft.

2. Add bone broth and bring to a boil.

3. Make the zucchini into noodles. Slice the zucchini into your desired size of strips, either thick or nice and thin (more like actual noodles) with a julienne slicer.

4. Once the carrots are tender, add the zucchini and simmer (covered or uncovered) until tender. The time will vary depending on the size of your zucchini “noodles.”

5. Add the chopped chicken and garlic, bring back to a boil, and then turn the heat off. Cover and allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
