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.
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.
