There’s nothing quite like homemade chicken soup. I used to buy the canned stuff often, especially during the winter months. But making your own is easy, and that way you know exactly what’s in it! My method involves pre-roasting the chicken, separating the meat, then simmering the bones for a few hours to make a rich, flavorful broth. Add vegetables and spices, stir in some gluten-free egg noodles, and you’ve got a hearty, comforting soup for those days when you’re feeling under the weather– or any time you’re craving a warm, filling meal.

Delight your mitten-clad crowd with a cup of creamy, homemade hot cocoa the next time they come in from the cold. This twist on everyone’s favorite winter drink is made with organic cocoa powder and dairy-free almond milk, with a hint of citrusy-tropical flavor from orange extract and coconut oil. Artificially flavored powdered packet-mixes are about to become a thing of your past!
In the heart of winter, nothing seems to take the chill off like a steaming bowl or mug of soup. Cooking a soup meal can be a lovingly drawn out affair, or as simple as opening a can. Many people have found a happy medium by buying ready-made beef, chicken or vegetable broth, and adding their own fresh root and green vegetables in a slow simmer.
Comfort food doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Instead of reaching for a calorie-dense snack, try a bowl of this delicious veggie-packed soup, courtesy of Chef Oonagh Williams.
After the holidays, I’m ready for some new flavors after staying quite true to the traditional holiday themes for all the Paleo events I’ve hosted between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Add to that the fact that in the height of cold season, we could all benefit from a little “heat” in our food–via garlic, cayenne and ginger–to help ward off those bugs that are all too present this time of year, and we’ve got a perfect rationale for a little spice in our recipe today!
