GAPS Intro Diet Carrot “noodle” Soup

img_1688

Ahhhh soup, it is the basis of your GAPS diet experience.  You will eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner….and then eat it some more.  That rich broth will be working all the time to heal and seal you while providing your skin with the most anti-aging beneficial glycine and collagen.  Think of that good stuff while you force yourself to overcome soup over load.

You have limited ingredients to use on GAPS Intro Stage 1.  However, limited ingredients doesn’t have to mean boring and tasteless.  Here is a soup that I made for our crew that even the Dad raved about(and he hates butternut squash).

Carrot Chicken Noodle Soup

  • 1 whole chicken shredded
  • 3 quarts of broth (from that chicken you just shredded, preferably with fat from the chicken…..you need AlL THE FATS)
  • 2lbs of carrots cut into noodle shape. I use a spiral cutter for mine.
  • 2 onions
  • 1 butternut squash (peeled and diced)
  • 1 TBS of minced garlic
  • salt to taste

Combine all but the carrot noodles into the stock pot, cook til the squash has softened a bit, add the carrot noodles.  Serve when everything is softened and the flavors are on point.  It isn’t an award winning soup, but it is fun and tasty and gets the job done.  You can pour a little sauerkraut juice from fermented sauerkraut on top.  Intro stage says only a teaspoon or two.

After a couple of days of chopped veggies, meats, and broth soups….my kids were happy to see some “noodles.”
