Gut-Healing Sweet and Spiced Soup

WF GF DF SF

Serves: 2

Gut-healing wintertime essentials when you maybe ate one too many holiday cookies and drank too much eggnog?

One of my favorites is soup.

Really, to get your gut back on track any time, I love nutrient-rich soup.

And this easy-to-make, delicious recipe hits the spot with essential nutrients and fantastic flavor.

Nourishing bone broth forms this soup’s base to heal the gut lining, while sweet potatoes offer fiber to feed your healthy gut bacteria. Ginger and turmeric support your immune system and dial back inflammation. 

This savory, satisfying soup makes a perfect starter or whenever you need warm, satisfying nourishment.
