Dr Jockers Comments:
I always loved egg drop soup growing up. Unfortunately, most of the egg drop soups you would get at an Asian restaurant are full of MSG and other chemical additives and poor quality ingredients. This is loaded with superfoods and is extremely nourishing for the body.
Bone broth is loaded with powerful nutrition that is amazing for the gut, skin, joints and immune system. It is truly a beauty food that is rich in the anti-aging nutrient collagen. Grass-fed butter/ghee and pasture-raised eggs are great sources of carotenoid antioxidants that enhance immunity and bring color and softness to your skin.
It is always wise to get organic celery and spinach as they are thin skinned and are always part of the dirty dozen for highest herbicide/pesticide levels. The onions are always members of the clean fifteen as they are lower in herbicide/pesticide count.
