Dr Jockers Comments:
This coconut curry soup is a warm savory dish that tastes wonderful and has a great aroma that will fill up the whole house. It is full of healthy fats and micronutrients that help the body to cleanse and detoxify and is easy on the digestive system.
This is a low-carb, plant-based ketogenic recipe that is loaded with anti-inflammatory polyphenolic compounds with the turmeric, green leafy veggies, ginger, onion and garlic. When these compounds marinate into a soup recipe like this, the hard outer fibers are broken down which reduces stress on our digestive tracts and the pure nutrients become more bioavailable.
If you want to increase the protein content, you are welcome to add in some free-range chicken, wild-caught fish or grass-fed beef. You could even add in a few raw eggs and the heat of the soup will cook some of the proteins making it similar to an “egg-drop” soup like texture. Also, feel free to add in more veggies to your desire.
