Healing Chicken Soup Recipe - http://www.RadianceCentral.com

It’s Sicky Season, and over the course of the past two weeks my entire family was sick with the flu, including myself! My husband first got sick, then my daughter, and right when they started feeling better and I thought I managed to escape it, I got ill. I don’t like being sick, and I especially don’t like being sick while taking care of a toddler!

Lucky for me (and my family), I do have a bunch of natural remedies to help us get through the flu. There’s so many things you can do to relieve the symptoms and even help to speed up recovery. Over the next week I will share more recipes and remedies of the things that I do, that help!

Today I want to share my ultimate best healing chicken soup recipe. This by far is the most soothing, comforting, and nourishing soup. Every time I make it, I immediately feel better, and if I eat it regularly, I notice that it not only makes me physically feel strong and nourished, but my skin and hair get super soft and glowing. I also find this soup relaxes me and evens out my mood.

This chicken soup is also my daughter’s absolute favourite meal (minus the chilli peppers of course!). When I make this soup, she goes crazy for it, impatiently demanding bowl after bowl (words can’t describe my sheer delight and satisfaction of seeing her devour this healthy soup, she eats it like it’s chocolate cake, and sometimes I wonder if perhaps we are eating the same thing!). So this soup is AMAZING, it’s got Luna Ray’s kisses of approval :)

Natasha’s Healing Chicken Soup Recipe

1 Organic, Free-Range / Pasture Raised Chicken
3 quarts / litres Water
2 medium Carrots (sliced or diced)
2 Potatoes (peeled & diced)
1 Zucchini (diced)
2 stalks of Celery (diced)
1 Onion (diced)
4 Shallots (sliced)
4 cloves of Garlic (minced)
2 inches / 5cm Ginger Root (sliced in large chunks so you can easily remove it when soup is finished cooking)
2 stalks of Lemongrass (bruised and tied in a knot)
2 Bay Leaves
2 Bird’s Eye Chilli Peppers (thinly sliced)  – Optional
3 tbsp fresh Coriander / Cilantro (chopped)
1/2 tsp White Peppercorns (crushed)
2 tsp Sea Salt

Directions:
1- Put chicken in a stock pot and cover it with 3 quarts/litres of cold water.
2- Put stove on high and bring to a boil.
3- As the water is heating up, prepare, chop, and dice all the remaining ingredients, and put in the stock pot with water and chicken.
4- When the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, and place a lid on top of the pot leaving it slightly ajar.
5- Allow to simmer for at least 1.5 hours or longer (the longer the soup cooks the richer the flavour. I like to cook this soup for 3-4 hours if I have the time!).
6- When the soup is cooked, turn off the heat and take the whole chicken out of the stock pot and set the chicken aside to cool down.
7- Remove and discard the bay leaves, lemongrass, and ginger root from the soup.
8- Once the chicken is cooled down and not hot to touch, separate the chicken meat from the skin and bones, and add all the meat pieces back into the soup. You can discard the skin and bones (or keep the bones to use for another chicken stock).
9- Serve and enjoy.

If You Struggle With Emotional Eating, Try This!

I learned this trick from my husband. He once told me the elders in his village would say: “Never eat upon returning home for at least 30-60 minutes.” Their reasoning was spiritual, this was a way of self-mastery. When my husband told me about this, I thought about emotional eating, and how for many people who come home from a long day at work, or returned home after seeing friends or family, many times they return home and go straight to the fridge to look for something to eat. They aren’t necessarily hungry, instead they use food to take the edge off, to comfort eat, to distract themselves from their thoughts, or to relieve stress or pressure. Whatever the reason, if you find yourself routinely comfort eating and eating out of emotion, try changing your routine– when you come home from anything, instead of going straight to the fridge, do something else for 30-60 minutes, and then see how you feel (you might not be hungry after all and have actually found a new way of handling your daily stresses!)

If you have ever tried this or did something else to help with emotional eating, let us know what you did and if it worked!

Over the weekend I was reading Wayne Dyer’s book, “Excuses Begone!” At the end of the book, he talked about being right or being kind– I love this! Simple but profound! In today’s video I talk about how this has shifted my perspective and helped in my personal relationships.

Recently I received a question asking which carbohydrate foods I recommend to somene who has issues metabolizing sugar properly like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), insulin resistance, sugar sensitivity, etc. Personally, what I find to be most important is first to get onto a super healthy diet eliminating all the processed food and junk food. After that, if need be, in today’s video I go over what other modifications and adjustments one can make to their already healthy diet to maintain balanced blood sugar levels.

Sometimes what we want isn’t always going to give us what we need. If you are in a rut, not getting the results you want, or find yourself always stuggling with the same thing, than maybe it’s time to do things differently. You might be surprised just how easy it is to achieve something by being open to trying something new!

Make December the healthiest month of the year!! What we tell ourselves determines everything– don’t listen to those people talking about ‘holiday weight gain’ or ‘falling-off over the holidays.’ You decide what kind of month it’s going to be (and nothing better than starting the new year already feeling super fabulous!).

I don’t think the rules of food combining work for everyone. For myself, I don’t follow them because I find it to be quite detrimental on my blood sugar and energy levels. Depending where someone is at on their health journey, what their diet is currently like, and their health history, food combining can work for some, and not work for others. Here’s my opinion!
