There’s nothing like a bowl of comforting soup to keep you cosy. This recipe is not just good for the soul. This gut-friendly soup will help in healing your gut, with high-quality collagen, vegetables which provide fibre and prebiotics to feed healthy bacteria and free of any toxic additives that cause digestive discomfort.
Is bacon really gut-friendly?
For this recipe, I used free-range bacon that was cured using celery powder instead of traditional sodium nitrates/nitrites. It won’t harm the gut if you have it in small doses but it’s best to take a dosage of vitamin C for antioxidants when consuming any bacon. Stick to the highest quality animal products or leave it out.
This soup will still be super delicious without the bacon. However, for best gut-healing benefits I would make sure to use beef bone broth as it contains all the wonderful collagen that keeps your gut lining strong. Highest quality organic, grass-fed bone broth is ideal. You could use chicken broth too if you prefer.
You can choose whether you want to enjoy it as a chunky broth soup or blend it to make a delicious smooth and creamy bowl of goodness.
