Megan’s Comments:

Simple. Nourishing. Tasty. Perfect combination.

If you make it with homemade chicken stock, your body and your taste buds will thank you.

This meal can also be made in a crock pot if you need to make it in advance (it will make your house smell divine).

You have your nourishing protein(free range, organic chicken OR turkey), antioxidant rich veggies (onions and peppers), and those marvelous fats (coconut oil and avocado).

Great meal, little time!

Dr Jockers Comments:

I am a huge fan of chicken soups and bone broths.  Bone broth is a powerful form of nutrition that benefits your joints, your skin, your gut and your immune system.  Adding in lots of healthy veggies like onions makes this even more powerful.

I personally like to put a lot more herbs in this including garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, etc.  These components provide great flavor and aroma but also a mega-dose of immune supporting nutrients.

Beans are a fringe food that may have positive effects for some individuals but may not be good for others.  I do not advocate eating a lot of legumes such as the beans that are in this recipe.  However, as a clinician, I have seen that certain individuals seem to thrive on these foods.  If you are one who feels you tolerate beans well than this is the recipe for you.

The pro’s of eating beans are centered around the fibers that help support the growth a healthy microbiome.  The cons are the lectins and carbohydrate/protein combination that can be challenging on the digestive system.

The way I teach it is that if you feel gassy and bloated after consuming beans, than stay away from them.  If you feel that beans help you stay regular with your bowel habits and you feel very energized when consuming them than continue with them.

  1. Dr J — Your recipes all sound absolutely wonderful! However, I haven’t been able to try any of them because there are so many pictures throughout the instructions that I can’t print the instructions or one copy would gobble up all my printer ink. Is there some way that you can provide more print-friendly recipes? Just the printed recipe with no pictures would be so nice. Otherwise, I will have to spend a lot of time writing down all the recipes. Help! Thanks — Linda

  2. This recipe sounds like a great alternative to the less-heathy white chili that I love. I hope to try it soon! Do you have suggestions for substitutes if you can’t tolerate the beans?
