I was really missing soup. As I got away from all "ready made foods" due to gluten, MSG, sugar, salts, chemicals and all of the other lovely things found in food today I found myself longing for comfort food. Then I got a bad cold in January and the need for soup increased, haha. Then I came up with a recipe that was not only delicious, but it soothed me like soup did when I was a child. So if you feel the sniffles coming on, make a pot of this delicious "homestyle" gluten-free chicken zoodle soup.
1 Tbsp Earth Balance butter (substitute avocado or coconut oil for Whole 30)
2 celery ribs
8 cups chicken broth (I use Imagine Gluten Free, chicken or vegetable)
1 lb boneless, skinless natural, organic, free range chicken breast, cubed
8 oz. of prepared zoodles (spiralize and blanch 2-3 zucchini until tender)
½ tsp sea salt
You may also add herbs of your choosing to give more flavor and color
1. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, add butter. Wash celery and chop into bite size pieces. Add to saucepan and stir. Peel and chop carrots into bite size pieces. Stir. Sauté for 3 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, dice cooked chicken into bite size pieces. Add chicken broth and chicken. Cover and bring to a boil.
3. Add herbs and salt. Add prepared zoodles. Stir and serve!
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
