Healing Vegetable & Beef Soup


If you’re feeling under the weather or are looking for a healing anti-inflammatory soup, you’ll love this recipe! It’s packed with garlic, which is anti-inflammatory, full of antioxidants and vitamins, and it acts like a natural antibiotic.

Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant best known for fighting inflammation. According to Anya Guy, a Mayo Clinic dietitian, “Turmeric has natural anti-inflammatory compounds called curcuminoids, and these curcuminoids have been associated with a positive effect on various diseases.” Onions are rich in antioxidants, in particular quercetin, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that helps your body fight free radical damage. Onions also support your digestion because they are rich in inulin, a prebiotic-like fiber. 

Gluten Free | Paleo | Anti-Inflammatory | Low Histamine | Low Oxilates


1 lb of ground grass-fed beef
(or shredded hormone/antibiotic-free chicken)
8 cups of bone broth
1-2 cups each of chopped carrots and celery
1 large onion, chopped 
2 cloves of garlic, diced 
1 tbsp Herbs de Provence 
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp basil 
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp turmeric 

If you’re adding protein, sear the beef until brown and add all ingredients to a soup pot or crockpot. I prefer to put all the ingredients in a crockpot for 6-10 hours on low for a richer flavor. 

This recipe can also be done in an Instant Pot on the soup setting on high for about 10 minutes or in a stockpot on the stove for 15-20 minutes.
