Soup is an awesome meal to load up on your veggies and bone broth!
Why bone broth? Bone broth is a helpful ingredient to support your immune system and is great for digestion and gut health. You can buy bone broth in the soup aisles of your grocer near the stocks. Anytime you are making a bone-in-meat in your crock pot, after you have taken out your meat and had your meal, throw those bones back in your crock pot and cook on low for another 12 hours. You already have to clean your crock pot anyway, so why not get more nutrition from those bones. After you’ve cooked your bones and they have cooled a bit, strain your broth into a separate bowl. I usually strain 3 times back and forth, then store in ball jars in the fridge. You can drink your bone broth as is or use it in soups, stews and sauces.
