Chicken Avocado Soup Notes:

Simple. Nourishing. Tasty. Perfect combination.

You can make this with homemade chicken stock, if you have the time and enjoy this.  However it is a lot of work to make your own broth and so I often will get the Kettle & Fire broth here.

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

    1. Hey Linda, I have the same problem. The long lists are tiresome. I copy the recipe from the website, paste it into a word document and delete all the unnecessary information so it fits on one or two pages. The list of ingredients takes up half a page, so you can set a tab at 3 1/2 on the ruler and do this: line up at end of first ingredient, tab over, delete to bring up the next ingredient. Do this for each ingredient until you have cut the list in half. You can also edit the instructions to eliminate unnecessary items if you already know how hot to cook something, or any other things that you already know. Dr J is not the only author out there that does these exceedingly long recipe lists. Good luck. It’s worth the extra trouble to have concise recipes for your collection.

  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?

  3. Just cut and paste the recipes’ info into one word document on ongoing basis and save folder under Dr. Jocker’s Recipes.
